Compression Load Cell ¦ Compression Load Cell with Digital Readout from METTLER TOLEDO

Compression Weigh Modules

A compression weigh module is designed so that its top plate and base plate will be squeezed toward each other when weight is applied to it, and it can be attached directly to the ground, piers or structural beams. Compression weigh modules are typically used in multiples under large platform scales such as truck and railroad track scales and in tank, hopper and silo weighing. Capacities for compression load cells, which are within compression weigh modules, range from 3 kg to 300 tons.

FAQs - Compression Load Cells

What is a compression load cell?

Commonly customers are looking for compression load cells to integrate compression type load cell solutions into their application. Compression load cell solutions are based on compression load cells and ideal for high capacity load cell applications. A compression load cell with digital readout – when provided by a trusted supplier is an ideal high capacity load cell solutions for heavy capacity weighing. A complete set of engineering specifications for compression load cell, tension load cell, static load cell with load cell price and load cell material can be found in the engineering handbook.

What is the working principle of a compression load cell?

Compression load cells are suitable for most weighing applications. These compression load cells are used in compression weigh modules and can be attached directly to the floor, piers, or structural beams. The tank or other object is mounted on top of the compression weigh modules. A typical compression weigh module consists of a compression load cell, a top plate (which receives the load), a load pin (which transfers the load from the top plate to the load cell), and a base plate (which is bolted to the floor or other support surface).

What is high capacity load cell?

METTLER TOLEDO is the largest provider of compression load cells globally including high capacity load cells. These high capacity load cells are very robust and have a rated capacity of 300tons per compression load cell. This is important, because providing the highest accuracy by closely matching the application capacity to load. The comprehensive range of compression load cells covers everything from 3 kilograms up to 300 tons without any compromise on safety

What are the best load cells for compression testing?

POWERCELL® compression load cell with digital readout inside PowerMount™ weigh modules feature an onboard processor that provides condition monitoring and immediately adjusts to environmental changes. This makes them the ideal compression load cell to perform compression load cell testing. POWERCELL® compression load cells ensures accurate weighing regardless of the effects of vibration and temperature, assisting machine and equipment builders in maximizing the production yield for their customers.

Where can I buy a compression load cell with digital readout?

While METTLER TOLEDO can be considered a compression type load cell supplier, we like to consider ourselves more of a full solution provider. We can provide solutions for compression load cell with digital readout for the applications required at your operation. A compression load cell with digital readout can be used for many different applications, and the readout is key to ensuring traceability of processes. For this reason, a fully reliable compression type load cell solution, from a reliable load cell supplier, is key to your operations success.
