Take a look at our Technical Notes on Load Cells
The Geosense® HLC-6050 series of Hydraulic Load Cells consist of a sensitive pressure pad formed by joining two stiff steel discs at their periphery. The void inside the cell is filled with de-aired fluid. When load is applied to the cell the pressure of the inside liquid changes. The changes in pressure correspond directly to the load applied.
The pressure in the loads cell is measured either by a manometer, vibrating wire or resistance transducer and are available in the following models:
Models HLC-6051/2 can be read with portable manual readouts, connected into a GeoLogger or Wi-SOS 480 automatic data acquisition system.
Mounting surfaces should be flat and parallel for optimum performance and the use of very stiff bearing plates and load distribution plates is recommended.
The Geosense® HLC-6050 series is typically used to measure and monitor compressive load or force in structural members, struts and piles.
