Load Cells for Marine Applications
Did you know that Load Cells are used in Off-Shore Marine applications? Some of the load cells that we are able to supply have proven designs and materials for the Off-Shore Marine industry, including for use in hydrostatic or submersible vehicles.
Marine and Off-Shore industries are highly demanding and environmental factors can be extremely harsh. The load cells that we offer for marine applications have been designed to operate despite these harsh conditions which make them well suited for these areas; from splash zones, to deep under the surface of the ocean.
Marine applications using Load Cells
From fishing to monitoring cables underwater, we are proud to deliver load cells which can be used in all aspects of this industry. The more common uses for load cells in marine applications are;
- Oil Exploration & Drilling
- Anchoring loads
- Commercial Fishing
- Line Tensioning
- Towing Loads & Forces
- Hoist Loads
- Underwater Cable Monitoring
- Underwater Vehicles and Vehicle Recovery
- Mooring Loads & Systems
- Platform Retention
- Dry-dock hoist systems
- Dam Force Measurement
- Buoy Force Measurement
We can offer load cells to suit all of these applications. Many of them will come from our supplier Strainsert. Strainsert load cells, load pins and other force sensing elements are often used in different force and measurement applications across many industries. Some of our previous blog posts go into these in more detail;
Strainsert have also been a part of applications with NASA which has led to them gaining a NASA award.
