Load Pins

A reliable source for Load Cells information and leading Load Cells Companies & Manufacturers.

These pins are often used as a replacement for pivot pins or clevis pins as they offer a number of advantages that other load sensors do not. Load pins are great for so many applications because they are able to withstand a lot of hazardous elements and can even operate in some of the most difficult environments including offshore and subsea environments.

With a long operating life and a variety of styles, finding the right load pin is something that you do not have to do often and with so many varieties you can be sure to find a load pin that will fit your needs and expectations.

Load pins are commonly used in applications with brake anchors, rope, chains, bearing blocks, pivots, sheaves, shackles, and other similar objects. The load pin works as it senses the force that is being applied to it, it senses the force through strain gauges which are installed in the center of the pin.

Because the intricate parts of the load sensor are found within the center of the product, the load pin sensor is protected from virtually all elements, even water. If you already know that your load pin will be placed in an underwater application, the load pin manufacturer that you decide to work with can ensure that your load pin is completely waterproof through the addition of o-ring sealed end caps.

This reliability through all environments is what sets load pins apart from their competition and on top of this advantage, load pins come in a vast range of sizes and load ratings so you can be sure to find a load pin that will operate reliably within your application.

Now there are a number of factors that come into play on a load pin such as the required load rating, the size required by the application, connector and cable arrangements, and the load pin locking system being used.

All of this revolves around your application and the specifications and requirements of it. Because of this, it is important to find a load pin manufacturer who will listen to your application and suggest the best possible load pin in order to meet and exceed your expectations.
