Compression Load Cells - LPX Series

Supplier: PT Limited

Our most popular general-purpose compression load cell.

Price Guide: POA

PT's unique design means that the whole upper section is turned in a continuous process leaving the cell with an impervious upper section. All electronics components are housed through the bottom of the load cell, which is then, protected to IP67, further mechanical protection results simply by bolting to a flat surface. Suitable for tank, hopper, silo work and all industrial-weighing projects, the LPX is finished in a corrosion resistant electroless nickel plate, perfect for hostile environments. The LPX is available in 11 different capacities from 25kg to 50,000kg. A true mini disk at 22mm high in the 25kg model and only 55mm in the 50,000kg model.

When fitted to our purpose designed LPXR restraining mounting kits, it's the ultimate "set and forget" load cell weighing system.
