Shear Beam Load Cells

Our shear beam load cells are ideal for a range of industrial weighing requirements. The 500 series shear beam load cells are robust, accurate and available in a range of capacities of 5kN, 10kN, and 20kN. The 520 series is our range of hermetically sealed, stainless steel shear beam in capacities of 500kg, 1t, 2t and 5t.

A shear beam load cell is the traditional load cell used for medium weighing applications. They are normally used in a group of 3 or 4 under silos, tanks, platforms, etc. Loads can also be suspended from below the load cell if mounted on framework. As a rule of thumb, for a four-load cell system, divide your maximum load by 2. This will give you the required load cell capacity.

The capacities of our UK-manufactured Richmond Industries shear load cells range from 500kg to 5000kg, but if you don’t see the shear beam cell you require, just call us on 01189 310 396, and we’ll usually be able to design and make it for you.
