Types of Load Cells

The most common types of load cells are pneumatic load cells, hydraulic load cells, pneumatic load cells or strain gauge load cells.

Styles of the Load Cells

The S beam which derives its name from its Z or S shape which delivers an output under its tension pull. The S beams are mostly applied in truck scales, tank level, and hoppers. The S-beam are among the different types of load cells available in the market. they are best applied when suspending or hanging a weighing system.

The Bending Beam – Mostly applied in industrial control and tank weighing processes. The bending beam come with a low …
