Manufacturing loadcells since 1972
F218 Column Loadcell
Standard Ranges 100, 200 and 400kN (10 to 40tonnef)
Geometry: Small column in a sealed case, with a domed top load bearing face. For use in compression.
The F218 is ideally suited to engineering force measurements. Its high structural load capacity and the frequency response characteristic of this principle of strain sensing make this loadcell ideal for non-sacrificial impact load measurements.
We are happy to design variants of this loadcell to meet your specific requirements. Versions can be manufactured for fully compensated operation up to +250°C. Please consult our engineering department.
Details of our other loadcell families can be found in the Product Guide.
