Crane Scales and Tension Link Load Cells
Crane scales are a necessary and crucial component in a wide range of construction and industrial weighing and lifting applications. These applications often impose conditions that do not lend themselves to standard load cells. Since these applications have widely varying physical designs, capacities, and performance requirements, it’s important to find the appropriate crane scale for the job.
At Load Cell Central, we call on our nearly three decades in the industry to manufacture a complete line of crane scales and tension link load cells to meet your needs. Contact us now for more information.
Crane Scales for Low and Medium Duty Applications
For construction or industrial applications calling for low to medium duty capacity, our CSM series is the high quality, durable and dependable solution you’re looking for. Our CSM3 and CSM4 crane scales can handle capacities ranging from 220 to 44,000 pounds — they feature versatile portable and rechargeable models that present an efficient solution for budget applications. Features also include bright LED displays for indoor/outdoor reading of weights, excellent weighing performance, lb/kg selectability, auto shutoff, and safe overload of 120% of full scale.
Crane Scales for Heavy-Duty Applications
When it comes to construction applications calling for greater capacity, rugged durability and indoor/outdoor use in harsh environments, our WL-CTL2 wireless crane scale/tension link load cell and DCL10 tension link load cell/crane scale answer the call. Our standard crane scales are capable of handling loads up to 200,000 pounds, and they can also be custom built to meet diverse industrial weighing requirements. Perfect for heavy-duty weighing and lifting applications, you can use crane scales in applications with cranes, hoists and winches, lift testing, towing tension, cable tension, hoist scales and tensile testing systems.
Underwater and Overload Limiter Load Cell Crane Scales
The UWTL crane scale series is specifically designed for underwater use in 5,000-meter depths and beyond. The series can also be custom built depending on capacity dimensions, output, cable length and internal signal requirements.
The DLWS crane scale features a wire rope load cell for cranes and hoists, which detects overload conditions and employs a digital indicator to provide relay outputs.
Crane Scale & Tension Link Selection
The WL-CTL2 wireless tension link load cell is ideal for weighing and lifting applications such as with cranes, hoists, and winching, that may not lend themselves to standard cabled load cells--- where the cable could get damaged or where it may not be safe to be close to the load cell during a lift.
The CSM3 crane scale is designed for low capacity industrial applications such as under hook-crane load weighing and material testing. The bright 0.9" backlit LCD display provides easy indoor or outdoor reading of weights.
The CSM4 crane scale is designed for medium capacity industrial applications such as under-hook crane load weighing and material testing. The bright 1.2" LED display provides easy indoor or outdoor reading of weights.
Load Cell Central's UWTL Series underwater load cells are built to order. Typical applications include marine towing, oilfield, salvage, construction, and mooring load monitoring.
Load Cell Central's versatile LCC-DCL10 Tension Link load cell is designed for use in harsh environments. Employed in a wide variety of lift tests, towing tension, cable tension, crane scale, hoist scale, and tensile testing systems, the DCL10's rugged and convenient link design has lent itself to a never-ending list of applications.
The DLWS load cell is designed to clamp onto a static cable / wire rope allowing for a simple way of detecting overload conditions on a crane, hoist, or winch. Optional electronics can be used to provide relay ouptuts to shut down the lifting operation or sound an audible alarm or light.
