TG Load Cells has developed the TJH-3 series compressive load cells, which are specifically designed as column type load cells. These cylinder load cells are characterized by their ability to handle large tonnage measurements, with the company having successfully produced a custom column sensor capable of handling up to 2000 tons. This groundbreaking feat showcases the company's expertise and commitment to pushing boundaries in load cell technology.

Column type compression load cells for large tonnage tanks

Such as those used in oil and gas, chemical, or water treatment industries. These tanks often need to be accurately monitored and measured to ensure safe operation and optimal usage. Column load cells provide the ideal solution for weighing large quantities of substances stored in these tanks, offering precise measurements and real-time monitoring capabilities.

Column type compression load cells for storage tanks

Whether it's a grain silo, a fuel storage tank, or a liquid storage container, accurately measuring the weight of the contents is crucial for inventory management and operational efficiency. Column load cells, with their wide range and high capacity, allow for accurate and reliable weighing of large volumes of stored materials, leading to better control and management of inventory levels.

Column type compression load cells for truck scales

For industries involved in transportation and logistics, accurately weighing trucks is essential for regulatory compliance and load distribution optimization. Cylinder load cells, with their robust design and high tonnage capabilities, can withstand the weight of heavy commercial vehicles and provide precise weight measurements. This enables trucking companies, freight forwarders, and logistics providers to accurately calculate charges, ensure proper load distribution, and maintain compliance with legal weight limits.

The use of column type canister type load cells in various applications not only offers accurate and reliable weight measurements but also contributes to improved safety, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. By implementing column load cells, companies can optimize their weighing processes, reduce inaccuracies, and minimize the risk of overloading equipment or vehicles.

TG Load Cells' TJH-3 series column type compression load cells can be equipped with optional modules or self-display functions, further enhancing their versatility and capabilities. These optional modules can provide added features like temperature compensation, digital output, or wireless connectivity, allowing for seamless integration into advanced weighing systems and data management networks. Self-display functions make it convenient to read and monitor weight measurements directly on the cylindrical load cell, eliminating the need for additional display devices.

Column Load Cell Working Principle

Column load cells function based on the fundamental principle of strain gauges responding to force-induced deformation. Comprising a columnar structure, these compressive load cells incorporate strain gauges arranged in a Wheatstone bridge circuit. When subjected to axial forces, the column deforms, causing strain in the gauges and altering their resistance. The resulting electrical signal, reflecting this resistance change, undergoes conditioning and amplification to ensure accuracy. Calibration, involving known force applications, establishes a relationship between force and electrical output. Widely used in compression scenarios, cylinder load cells excel in accurately measuring and monitoring forces. Their reliability and precision make them essential in applications like material testing, weighing systems, and industrial processes where precise force data is critical for optimal performance and safety.
