Durham Instruments carries fatigue-rated load cells from Interface. The lineup includes two environmentally sealed models, one of which is certified for explosion protection in hazardous environments. Both types are highly accurate and reliable, the perfect complement to Durham Instruments’ portfolio of high-quality instruments.
SSMF fatigue-rated load cell
The SSMF model is environmentally sealed, and features Interface’s proprietary temperature-compensated strain gauges. Available in capacities ranging from 25 to 2.5K lbf, this unit offers 1×107 fully reversed cycles, 0.02 per cent non-repeatability, and a very low creep of 0.025 per cent. It can operate in temperatures ranging from -55 to 90 degrees C.
Model SSMH intrinsically safe load cell
The SSMH model is environmentally sealed, and certified for explosion protection according to ATEX designations. Thanks to its intrinsically safe design, this load cell is suitable for use in hazardous areas where the introduction of potential ignition sources is not acceptable, including mining applications. It is available in capacities ranging from 50 to 5K lbf, can operate in temperatures between -40 and 150 degrees C and, like model SSMF, offers a very low creep of 0.025 per cent and 0.02 per cent non-repeatability.
