Viscosity / Liquid Separation

This particular application is used in batching or mixing of multiple chemicals. By measuring the viscosity, you can determine when to stop adding a liquid to the mix. As shown here, the table can be lifted so that the probe reaches the liquid in the tank. The probe can also be brought down into the liquid. Once the probe is in the liquid, a certain amount of tension is required to pull the probe back out. The thicker the liquid, the higher the viscosity is and the harder it is to pull the probe out. The load cell measures this tension and transfers the data to a display. Both MIT and NASA (Glen Research Center Cleveland) have utilized FUTEK’s Sensitive Dyne Sensor to measure water or liquid separation forces.

High Capacity Compression Load Cell

In addition to the popular Pancake Load Cell, FUTEK now offers the LCA700 Column / Canister Load Cell series for applications requiring high capacity range measurement and control in compression. Weighing only 50 lbs, its compact design is offered with up to 1 million lbs of high capacity and a high accuracy of column design flexure. The LCA700 Column / Canister Load Cell has a raised spherical surface to lower the possibility of off center loading, and comes equipped with a handle for easy carrying. Some additional features that can be added include dual bridge, amplifier, and TEDS. One ideal application is for high tonnage press. Major calibration houses currently use this product and accept no substitute. Visit or email for additional information on this product, or for a similar lower capacity version, refer to the LCA300 -Miniature Load Column Load Cell series.
