What is tension load cell?
Tension 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.

How does a tension load cell work?
Tension 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. There are various load cell types and applications. The major trade-off with tension load cells is their high profile which makes them undesirable in floor or pit applications.    
Tension load cell measures pressure and is similar to a tensile load cell. They are vital in the manufacturing industry in which they improve efficiency and provide data for stress and quality assurance load cell 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 is the range of tension load cells?

METTLER TOLEDO tension load cells reach from 25 kg (50 lb.) up to 10 t (22 klb). We are experts on the load cell tension working principle for tension load. Tension link load cell is ideal for measuring in-line tension forces. Tensile load cells and tension load cells are sensors or transducers that interpret force or pressure as an electrical output that can be measured. Tension load cells are made with a capacity range  between 50kg / 110lb to 10 / 50lb tons, depending on the application. Our tension load cell is certified for application in hazardous areas per ATEX and Factory Mutual guidelines; see specific compliance certificates for classification details.

What is web tension control?
Web tension load cell is designed primarily for measuring the horizontal forces of web tension. The robust and economical design of the web tension load cell and tensile 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.

METTLER TOLEDO offers a wide range of tension 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.
