Load Stand® II Direct Support

Not A Traditional Load Cell

The load stand is a direct vessel-to-foundation structural member designed to be a dependable and accurate continuous monitoring and control solution for inventory management.

  • Rated load capacity can be up to one million pounds per support point
  • Manufactured to meet IBC (International Building Code) requirements
  • Immune to material characteristics like angle of repose, rat-holing, bridging, moisture content, compaction, vapors and dust
  • Recommended for new silo installations
  • Minimal service and no preventative maintenance


Solutions are found for unique flange shapes or difficult applications. Load stands can be as large as needed.

Field Repairable

Sensors are replaced quickly and easily – individual sensors are attached to the load stand and can be replaced using a screwdriver without removing the stand.

Monolithic Design

Unique to Kistler-Morse the load stand is bolted to the top and bottom of the structure creating a secure mechanical connection.
