Tension Links

Tensile Measurements

Made out of marine grade stainless steel, tension links are a high accuracy sensor used for tensile measurements. Our standard load link range is from 1/4 to 400 tons, although larger capacities, high accuracy and load links manufactured to specific physical dimensions are available on request.

The loading hole at each end of the load links is chamfered so that when under load any torsional effects are minimised. They are simple to install and can be supplied with a range of displays to suit each application.
