Bending and Shear Beam Load Cells

Thames Side’s range of bending and shear beam load cells has among the highest specifications in the market for process weighing, industrial scale and general measurement applications. Load cell capacities ranging from 5kg to 10,000kg are available.

They are designed specifically for high accuracy applications in tank and vessel weighing, filling systems, platform scales, bagging machinery, belt scales and conveyor systems.

For use in harsh environments, our Models T66 (bending beam), T85 and T85-T (shear beams) are manufactured from stainless steel, fully welded and hermetically sealed to provide total environmental protection (IP68 and IP69K).  The T85-T model has a blind loading hole, ideal for use in platform scales.

For less severe environments, our T85-N nickel plated steel shear beam is constructed with a humidity-resistant silicone potting compound.

Our bending and shear beam load cells carry recognised weights and measures approval from OIML.  The T66 load cell is available with OIML C3 (3000 divisions) or C6 (6000 divisions) approval.

The T66 and T85 have ATEX approval for use in hazardous areas.  For use in dust zones 20, 21 and 22 there is no need for safety barriers.

Options of special cable lengths, Parylene coating and high temperature versions are available, as well as your own company labelling and 3rd party OIML certification.

We can supply technical drawings and 3D CAD files (e.g. in STEP format) to engineers who are specifying load cells for new equipment and we can supply installation drawings/technical manuals for site engineers responsible for system installation.

CE-mark-transparent  All of our load cells manufactured since July 2014 are RoHS 2 compliant.

Complementing our bending and shear beam load cells is a range of weighing assemblies, such as the unique, patented LeverMount® and the LA85 Anti-Vibration assembly. Additionally, our range of rugged junction boxes and precision measuring electronics provides the optimum weighing solution in all applications.

We hold an extensive stock of standard products at our warehouse in the United Kingdom and our Global Network of carefully selected Partners also carries stock, so that products can be shipped immediately on request.
