The LCM range of Shackle Load Cells is designed for lifting and weighing in rugged or harsh environments.
The shackle pins are forged from high tensile carbon steel and are machined to an exacting specification. The basic shackle uses the Crosby G2150 series.
This range of load cells is Proof Loaded to 150% of the normal rated load.
The SHK-D series are available in a range from 1 tonne to 35 tonne. The integral cable is normally enclosed in an armoured rubber hydraulic hose to give physical and environmental protection. The SHK-D is internally gauged and the whole instrumented area is sealed to IP67, to protect it in service.
They are simple to install and are available in standard shackle sizes. As an option, a rotating bobbin can be supplied, to centralise the load and to minimise any point-load effects when the shackle is placed under load.
We are always pleased to discuss any special requirements that can be accommodated. The SHK-D series can be supplied on it's own or combined with our extensive range of instrumentation to provide a complete load monitoring system.
