Tension Load Cells

Scotload’s tension load cells are easy to install and offer a highly accurate method of measuring tensile loads.

Suitable for lifting, process weighing and general measurement applications and an effective alternative to load shackles, our tension load cells are available in three main types:

  • Flat plate
  • S or Z beam
  • Column tension load cells

Benefits of tension load cells:

  • Easy to install
  • Sealed against dust and water
  • High performance
  • Robust and compact
