Load Measuring Shackles

In the Oil and Gas industry we are often required to measure tensile loads in chains, ropes or on the ends of hooks, lifting, towing and mooring applications.

One way to obtain these measurements is by inserting a shackle in line with the load and, if the shackle is fitted with strain gauges in the pin of the shackle, this then enables the measurement of the tensile load.

Load measuring shackles are used on many  mooring buoys to measure hawser tensions and are designed to fit that particular application.

Active Load provides complete transducer solution designing and manufacturing strain gauge transducers.

Strain gauge transducers are designed to be Load Cells, Force Sensors, Torque Sensors, Pressure Transducers and any other strain related product.

Active Load will incorporate the strain gauge cells with a strain gauge amplifier to achieve an enhanced signal. Many of our strain gauge load cells are designed to be in the form of load monitoring pins to measure rope tension. Other forms taken are as load monitoring links and compressive load cell.
