Straightpoint Loadblock Plus Compression Load Cell

Durham Lifting’s Straightpoint Loadblock Plus Compression Load Cell is a low capacity, self-indicating compression loadcell, used in many testing and load monitoring applications worldwide. The integral display eliminates the need for a separate display or cable assemble that can be easily damaged. Applications include the measurement of loads associated with the testing of hydraulic presses, cylinders or jacks.

This latest version of our Loadblock has advanced features and benefits providing solutions for today’s complicated load test and force monitoring needs. Features include full function push button controls for tare, units of measure (lbs, kg, kN, and tonnes), peak hold, pre-set tare, audible set-point alarm and an overload counter.

This crucial overload alarm counter is a requirement for many safety and quality control departments as it keeps track of overload events allowing the load cell in question to be removed from service immediately following a calibration voiding overload event. The load cell in question can then be sent out for proper testing and if necessary, recalibration before re-entering service.
