Tension Load Cells

Tension Load Cells

Crown Oilfield Instrumentation’s Tension Load Cells are dependable and durable components of pressure management systems for drilling rigs.  These load cells transmit pressure to a Crown gauge via a hydraulic hose when tension is applied. Crown tension load cells are made in house to work with out tong torque systems, wireline weight indicator systems, and crane weight systems.    Available in spin or nonspin varieties, Crown offers many sizes to suit your  application in the oil and gas industry. In the table below you will find all of our tension load cells, their max capacity and the replacement parts available in our online store.

All Crown Tension Load Cells are built to meet or exceed API specifcations.

Piston Style Sensors

Crown's  piston-style  sensors come in three max capacities and are used with our tong systems, mini weight indicators, and wireline weight indicators. These sensors consist of a piston, housing and  end cap and use the piston and a set of seals to sense tension. When the piston is pulled, the sensor  transmits this force via a hydraulic hose to the gauge and indicates the amount of force in pounds. The smallest t piston-style sensor is the CTC106, 4.0 sq. inch sensor for use with our tong sytems, which has a single line load max capacity of 20,000 lbs.. The second largest, the CTC107, has an effective area of 6.53 sqare inches.This sensor can be used where the single line load does not exceed 25,000 lbs and can be used in our tong line pull system, tong torque system, our wirleline and mini weight indicator systyems. Crown's newest  and strongest piston style sensor is the CTC105-2, which has an effective area of 6.53 square inches and is made of steel. This sensor has a max single line load capacity of 30,000 lbs and can be used in any application where the single line load capacity does not exceed 30,000. Each of these cylinders can be paired with a custom designed tong line pull indicator or tong torque gauge to your exact specifications. 

Tension Load Cells

Crown offers a complete line of tension load cells to suit your wireline system. Each tension load cell is made with only the most durable material so you know that a Crown tension load cell will  stand up to even the harshest industry conditions. Each tension load cell is paired with the proper gauge in our wireline weight indicator systems, making sure that your load cell will transmit the right pressure to the gauge time after time. These load cells come direct from the factory, charged with fluid ready to use, and each load cell comes complete with load test certificate.
