Tension load cell/beam type load cell offerings are typically used in a wide range of industries where precise measurements are required, and are paramount to the success and reputation of the company. These industries include pharmaceutical, manufacturing and automotive.

S Beam Load Cell Design
Precise measurements are crucial in research fields as well, especially ones that utilize laboratories for research – for this reason, S Beam Load Cells are a great solution. S type load cell / precision load cell products are designed for use with suspended tanks, dosing hoppers and other devices that are suspended from a support structure. METTLER TOLEDO offers a wide range of tension link load cell or tensile load cell capacities, including 10t load cell, to meet the needs of a variety of weighing applications. For example, the SLS410 Tension Load Cell is the perfect economic solution toward accurate, repeatable weighing. The SLS410 in tension weighing applications convert suspended hoppers or other hanging devices into a weigh system. It can also be used to convert mechanical scales into electronic scales. We also offer a range of load cell accuracy solutions to fit any need. Our team of engineers is also experts on the S Type Load Cell Working Principle.

What is S type load cell?
S-type load cells work after the same physical principle as all other load cells, but they keep in-load and out-load in one line. This means that no external moments occur which makes them relatively simple to implement. They are mostly used in tension applications. Their major trade-off is their high profile which makes them undesirable in floor or pit applications.    

Cylindrical Load Cell – Tank Load Cell/Load Cell Tension
The robust and economical design of the load cell and load cells for tanks are suitable for use in normal industrial environments. The SLF510 Tension Load Cell, on the other hand, is designed for use in industrial environments requiring a higher degree of corrosion protection because of its robust and economical stainless steel design. It also converts suspended hoppers or other hanging devices into a weigh system, and can be used to convert mechanical scales into electronic scales.

Tension load cell measures pressure and is similar to a strain gauge load cell. They are vital in the manufacturing industry in which they improve efficiency and provide data for stress and quality assurance testing. Tension load cells work with the help of a transducer, which is typically in cylinder form and is installed as the rolling component. Tension load cells then measure the amount of pressure that is applied to the transducer casing’s exterior. A tension load cell works by converting the tension placed upon the transducer into a signal that is then dispatched to a remote computer. That information is then monitored for progress.

What load cell testing is performed on tank load cells?
Make sure to seek an electronic load cell provider who tests their equipment to ensure reliable performance. At METTLER TOLEDO, we take product testing seriously, performing a variety of vigorous tests before any product hits the market.
