With the advanced equipment and technology of today, processes can be controlled to specifications and tolerances not possible in the past. In any type of weighing process, including tension control processes, to ensure the correct tension is maintained throughout the process.
The ability to precisely monitor and manage tension control is due to advancements in load cell sensor technology. The new designs and options are durable, long lasting, and have the advantage of being designed to withstand shock and even overload capacity.
Most of the systems using a load cell sensor will use a strain gauge type of system with the ability of these load cells to measure compression, tension, and shear force.
Ease of Installation and Low Maintenance Requirements
Ideally, look for a load cell with is designed to be easily installed on the equipment. There are some load cells which are more general in their ability to be mounted in any position and in a wide range of operating conditions, and others which can be very specialized.
Low maintenance starts with the design of the load cell sensor. They should be corrosion resistant and manufactured from durable materials, with stainless steel considered a top option. They should also be designed for use in hazardous environments, which is particularly important for processing and manufacturing facilities.
The Reputation of the Manufacturer
The reputation of the manufacturing of the load cell is a critical factor to consider. As these are an essential component of quality processing, a load cell with a top reputation for durability, reliability and low-maintenance is an investment in uptime and production on any piece of equipment or system.
Once installed, these load cells and sensors should operate seamlessly. Be sure to check for capacity range and overload protection to suit our system needs when making a selection.
