New Extensometer for Hopper and Silo Weighing

The Model 178 extensometer from Control Overload is a load sensor designed for force measurement on any load-bearing structure. This extensometer provides the total solution for weighing, level control, stress and fatigue monitoring. The design also allows multiple sensors to be permanently mounted for more complex stress profiling and analysis.

The Model 178 extensometer provides an ideal solution for non-intrusive level measurements for materials that are subject to uneven build up, bridging, or sidewall collection. Also, liquids or wetted materials that are not suited for direct contact level measurement are an ideal application for the Model 178 extensometer.

The design of the Model 178 makes it an excellent solution for retro-fitting existing structures without compromise of the integrity of the vessel or structure and is ideal for applications such as:

  • Tank weighing or level systems
  • Agricultural equipment
  • Rolling mill sensing
  • Moment sensing
  • Structural loading measurements
  • Bridge structures
