How do canister load cells work?

If you’re looking to purchase a load cell, you might be wondering what kind of load cell you should choose. One type of load cell that has gained popularity in recent years is the canister load cell, also called the membrane or in-can load cell. A canister load cell can be used to weigh virtually anything you can think of – from small pieces of fruit to large shipping containers.
