30 Tonne Annular Compression Load Cells for Lock Gate Hoist System

15th Mar 2017

For one of our UK customers we have designed and manufactured 7 off anchor load cells, each rated to 30te. These annular compression load cells will be used as part of a lock gate hoist system to monitor the even lifting and opening of the gates, and to provide protection to the lifting system in the event of a snagging incident by alerting operators via an integrated alarm system. With an accuracy of 0.1%, these stainless steel load cells have environmental sealing to IP67 for suitability for use in a marine environment.
