product description

Measurement Specialists Inc, dba National Scale Technology, manufactures canister, column, and disk-style load cells optimized to weigh between 100 and 1,000,000 pounds for axial compression and tension applications. On-site electrical engineers and technicians allow for customized bridge, excitation, output, and wiring configurations.

Canister load cells are hermetically sealed and water resistant vertical cylinders ideal for tough, high-capacity, and repetitive operations. Thanks to enclosed wiring, Measurement Specialists’ canister cells are great for pile testing and heavy-duty presses. MSNST manufactures units interchangeable with most other force measurement brands – consistently reporting higher performance metrics in terms of accuracy and durability.

MSNST has been a provider and distributor of weighing solutions across the world for 40 years now, and carries discontinued canister/column/disk-style load cells customizable to fit any need.

Specifications reflect canister-style load cells either currently in stock, or previously engineered and ready-to-assemble, as of August 2022. Accuracy data based on full-scale output readings upon completion of production, which is an average 6–8 weeks period for new load cells. Pricing available for off-the-shelf MSNST #11XXXXX and #12XXXXX units.
