Dynamometers & Tension Load Cells

Hydro-Wates® maintains an inventory of load cell dynamometer and water meter equipment to be used with our water bags to enable proof load testing of vessel and offshore crane equipment. We stock the highest quality load cell testers, so you can be assured that your test results are accurate. The results can be certified that they meet industry, regulatory and certifying authority standards. These include API, OSHA, ASME and NSTE standards.

Load cells are used in cranes, winches and hoists to manage tension lifting applications and weighing loads. Hydro-Wates® offers testers for tension links, shackle pin and threaded end load cells. They are rated to work in harsh and heavy duty environments. Testing is performed to ensure that the tension is set correctly and can handle the anticipated loads or that scales are reporting correct weights.

As an alternative to in-line tension load cells, water meters are available for crane testing applications with limited distance between the hook and ground level. Water meters accurately measure the volume of water being pumped into one or more water bag, which can then be used to calculate the target weight. Our water meters are accurate to +/- 1% and are provided with calibration certificates.

Whether Hydro-Wates® is performing the testing for you or you are performing the load cell testing, our water bag and load cell testers will provide accurate, certified results. You can be assured that the load cells will operate safely during crane lifting operations.
