Hydraulic Load Cell

Hydraulic Load Cell

Provides measurement of compressive loads between structural members.
The load is distributed equally over the loading area of the cell by a thick, machined steel distribution plate. The load, when applied to the cell, causes a pressure increase in the hydraulic fluid and this change can be measured.

Two designs available:

An annular cell and a solid cell.


-rock and soil anchors
-concrete pre and post-tensioning
-measurement of compressive loads between structural members.


-Simple, reliable hydraulic operation
-Automated data acquisition systems available.
-Readout methods: A Bourdon Tube Gauge, the simplest method, or various types of electrical transducers
-Low profile
-Remote readout capability
-Can be converted to VW & strain gauge output
