High Capacity Load Cells (Multi-Column)

With accuracies better than 0.0125 % of full scale, Morehouse High Capacity Multi-Column Load Cells are the standard of choice for calibration laboratories and as portable reference standards for field use. Capacities of our high capacity load cells range from 100,000 lbf to 2.25 million lbf.

Many of these high capacity load cells are not commonly stocked except 200k-300k capacities.  We typically stock our ISO 376 load cells for higher capacity.

Morehouse High Capacity Load Cells (Multi-Column Type)

Morehouse High Capacity Load Cells (Multi-Column Type) are suitable for companies that make field measurements in accordance with ASTM E4 and ISO 7500 as reference standards where portability is preferred. These strain gauge-based cells offer less creep and better zero returns than single-column load cells. Their lower uncertainties allow for fewer standards to maintain.

To generate a field calibration system, High-Capacity Load Cells (Multi-Column Type) can be combined with Morehouse Precision Load Cells to make a full-range kit. For example, to produce a 600,000 lbf kit, a 600,000 lbf High-Capacity Multi-Column Load Cell can be combined with a 50,000 lbf and a 1,000 lbf Morehouse Precision Load Cell to cover the 40 to 600,000 lbf. Fewer standards to maintain will significantly lower lifetime ownership costs.

These High Capacity load cells are suitable for the following uses:

  • Applications where more compact load cells are required
  • Applications where side load sensitivity is critical
  • Reference standard used to calibrate other load cells
  • ISO 376 standard meeting class 0.5 requirements
  • To calibrate to ASTM E4 with an ASTM Class A verified range of forces better than 8 % or better of capacity

High Capacity Load Cells (Multi-Column Type) are available in capacities up to 2,250,000 lbf (10 MN).  Our Morehouse High Capacity Load Cells (Multi-Column Type) are often custom built with longer lead times.  If you need a quicker delivery, our ISO 376 Precision Class Load Cells are commonly stocked and have a guaranteed ASTM Class A verified range of forces of 4 % of capacity.
