Annular load cells

Annular load cells are commonly known as washer loads or force-washers. They are designed for measuring of compressive forces and suitable for use in industrial applications

  • Range 10kN to 200kN.
  • Highly accurate
  • Robust, compact and low profile construction
  • Suitable for metric or imperial bolts.
  • Compression applications
  • Easy connection
The annular load cell is often used in electro-mechanical test rigs and other critical bolted installations.
