125-ton load cell: benefits and uses
A 125-ton load cell has a range of uses in various industrial settings. From oil and gas, live events, aerospace, and more. Here are some ways a 125-ton load cell might be used.
- Shipbuilding: Load cells may be used in shipbuilding to measure and monitor the weight and balance of large ships during and after construction.
- Railways: A 125-ton load cell might be used in railways for track balancing, load balancing in freight, and during the construction and maintenance of railway tracks.
- Oil and gas: Load cells are often used in the oil and gas industry to measure the force exerted by drilling equipment and to verify the structural integrity of oil rigs and pipelines.
- Aerospace: Organizations and companies like NASA and Boeing use Eilon Engineering load cells for a variety of applications, including lifting and weighing spaceships and rockets.
What is a load cell?
There’s no single answer to that question because load cells come in a wide variety of types, each with a different purpose. And while all load cells are used to measure force or weight, our focus here is on hanging load cells, which are used to measure lifted loads or tension in a vertical application.
Hanging load cells come in a range of capacities. Smaller ones, for example a 5-ton load cell, are generally used in small-scale industrial applications, while larger units like an 85-ton load cell are designed for large-scale operations.
Crane scale vs. load cell
If hanging load cells are measuring devices used to weigh lifted loads, what differentiates them from a crane scale?
The two terms aren’t mutually exclusive, and when we talk about these two types of measuring devices, there is a lot of overlap. In fact, a crane scale includes a load cell as part of its design and structure—the load cell is the part of the device that is responsible for measuring the force or weight. So the primary difference is that crane scales have a bottom hook, while a load cell alone doesn’t necessarily have one.
This means that if you need to choose between a crane scale vs. load cell, the main question you should ask is, “Do I need a hook or not?”
The difference between the two is largely how they are used. If your application calls for the horizontal measuring of force or tension, you probably don’t need a hook, making a load cell the right choice. But, if you need the convenience of quickly hanging and weighing different loads, then a crane scale is the way to go.
Heavy Duty Load Cells
Not all load cells are created equal. Besides the various types available, there’s also the issue of quality and durability.
If you’re working in an industrial environment where heavy, expensive equipment is used and safety is a top concern, then heavy duty load cells are the way to go.
With more than 45 years in the market, Eilon Engineering has developed a worldwide reputation for quality, durability, and excellence. Our load cell bodies are made of high-grade aerospace steel and are fatigue-rated. This means that so long as the system has never experienced an overload, it can be safely used for an unlimited number of load cycles.
Our weighing systems are trusted by leading companies and organizations such as NASA, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and countless others—organizations that accept nothing but the highest quality and safety standards.
When it comes to heavy-duty load cells, Eilon Engineering’s track record is unmatched in the industry. So whether you need a small 5-ton load cell, or a large-capacity 85-ton load cell, you can be sure you’re getting a top-of-the-line system when you choose Eilon.
Wireless Load Cell
The issues of “crane scale vs. load cell” and quality aren’t the only considerations when choosing a new weighing system. You’ll also need to decide whether or not you need a wireless load cell.
A wireless load cell is one that uses radio frequency technology to transmit the measured data from the load cell body to a remote receiver. Wireless load cells are a great convenience since there are no messy cables or wires to get tangled up in. This helps increase safety in two ways.
First, it removes the potential hazard of having cables laying around on the job site floor—a potential trip hazard.
Second, having a remote handheld readout gives the operator more flexibility in his movements and also allows him to remain at a safe distance from the lifted load.
Depending on the nature of your weighing application, a wireless load cell might be the best choice. Eilon wireless systems have an excellent frequency range of up to 450 feet (150 m), and an optional extended range of up to ⅔ of a mile (1 km).
