Sensing Systems manufactures submersible load cells and torque sensors for all marine applications and requirements. We have pioneered underwater sensing technologies and can adapt any of our standard load cell or torque sensor designs to function in marine environments. We also offer standard underwater load cells and torque sensors across all measurement ranges that are capable of operating in up to 7,000 feet underwater, or 3,000 psi. All standard load cell geometries - S-Beam, Shear Pin, Pancake, etc. can be made to operate in underwater environments as marine load cells.
When space, cost, and performance are critical, an existing part can be redesigned to operate as a load cell or torque sensor within an existing system or test setup requirement.
How to Select the Right Torque Sensor for your Application
Torque measurements are critical to process control and monitoring. Tightening torque of threaded fasteners, motor output horsepower measurement, and industrial automation processes are just a few of the common applications requiring repeatable and accurate torque measurements.

The torque sensor market in North America is strong and growing, and much of the increased demand has to do with the automotive industry's demand for better fuel efficiency. Other reasons torque measurement is increasing in the automotive sector are trends toward electrical power steering and condition-based maintenance.
The use of specialty industrial applications often requires creativity when it comes to measuring the forces involved in the application. One example of this is with friction stir spot welding (FSSW). This is a type of welding where two "parent" materials with low melting points are acted upon by a rotating tool that plastically deforms and forges the two parent materials together.
