Canister Load Cells

View Product Data Sheets »

The first high capacity load cells designed, back in the mid 50's were what is know today as "Canister" load cells. The design consisted of double diaphragms, which were brazed in place to reduce the effects of side and angular loads. These cells were typically hermetically sealed and very durable. They usually require slide plate assemblies and stay rods to prevent the introduction of additional side loads.

These load cells were typically used in motor truck scales, rail road track scales and for tank weighing. Rocker column load cells, shear beams and double ended shear beams have subsequently replaced the need for Canister load cells.

Canister load cells have been widely used and there are many thousands still in use. Group Four is in the ideal position to provide replacement units when needed.
