Hydraulic Load Cells

Geonor, Inc - Precision Instrumentation


Hydraulic Load Cells are constructed from stainless steel. The load is distributed equally over the loading area of the cell by a thick, machined steel distribution plate. The load, when applied to the cell, causes a pressure increase in the hydraulic fluid, and this change in pressure may be measured via a Bourdon Tube Gauge or a variety of electrical transducers.

Two designs are available. An annular cell, and a solid cell for the measurement of compressive force. Both designs are available with the following readout methods:

  1. A Bourdon Tube Gauge. This is the most simple method, but if directly connected requires access or visibility. The gauge can be mounted a short distance away and connected to the cell by a flexible hose.
  2. Various types of electrical transducers, allowing for remote readout and data acquisition, are also available.


  • Simple and reliable hydraulic operation.
  • Automated data acquisition systems compatible.
  • Low profile.
  • Remote readout capability.


  • Rock anchors.
  • Soil anchors.
  • Concrete and post-tensioning.
  • Measurement of compressive loads between structural members.
