EXTREME TEMPERATURE RANGE CAPABILITY
Sensing Systems routinely strain gauges parts and components to be used in cryogenic environments and at very high temperatures. These units are designed to operate in a wide temperature range from -452˚F to 450˚F (-269˚C to 230˚C). We also instrument parts, equipment, and structures for use up to 1,300˚F (704˚C). These installations may also be done in the laboratory or in the field.
Sensing Systems designs and manufactures load cells and torque sensors for underwater or submersible applications. We can use the same submersible/underwater capable materials and procedures to instrument customer’s components if underwater operation is required. These installations also require special underwater cabling and/or submersible connectors.
Strain gauge installations need to be protected from potential damage due to the environment in which they operate. Environmental conditions vary greatly between laboratory operation and exposed field conditions. Protection of strain gauge installations should be commensurate with the environment in which they operate. Sensing Systems will recommend and use the materials and procedures that will ensure survivability of each installation.
