L-Cell® Bolt-On Sensor

Turn Your Vessel Into a Scale

The L-Cell sensor bolts directly to a vessel’s support structure and measures changes in stress of the support, converting a voltage output into a readable weight.

  • Easy to install – an empty vessel is not required for installation or calibration, this increases up-time. No special tools are required.
  • Ideal bolt-on solution for skirted silos of at least 75,000 lb capacity.
  • Do not have to lift or modify the vessel to attach the sensor to the support beam.
  • Repairs and retrofitting can occur without taking the silo out of commission.
  • Immune to material characteristics like angle of repose, rat-holing, bridging, moisture content, compaction, vapors and dust.


  • Average Accuracy: 3 to 5%
  • Excitation Voltage: 10 to 30 VDC
  • Excitation Current: Approximately 10 mA
  • Functional Integrity (Fatigue Life): >20 million cycles
  • Operating Temperature: -30° to 150° F (-34° to 66° C)
  • Dimensions:
  • Approvals: ATEX, CE, UL
