At Stellar Technology, we design and manufacture a wide variety of application-solution products. Load pins, also known as clevis pin load cells, are uniquely designed for applications where clevis pins, shear pins, shear axles or pulley shafts are carrying a load.

Load pins are commonly found in the oil industry on coiled tubing injectors to measure both the injector forces and the hanging weight of the tubing. Clevis pin load cells are manufactured to exactly replace the existing shear pin and provide real-time force monitoring of loads carried by these types of devices.

Custom Clevis Pin Load Cell Design and Engineering

Stellar Technology’s clevis pin load cells are composed entirely of welded stainless steel and are hermetically sealed. Our load pins are shock and vibration-resistant and are equipped with robust electrical connectors to withstand even the most severe operating conditions.

Series LDP990 load pins operate in tension or compression over ranges from 3,000 lbs. to 200,000 lbs. These clevis pin load cells are also available with internal amplifiers in order to provide high-level analog and digital outputs. Standard operating temperature is -65°F to +250°F, with -320° to +400°F optionally available.

At Stellar Technology, along with our load pins, we also offer optional shackle kits consisting of a shackle, load positioning roller and orientation bracket.

Additionally, we offer submersible units that are able to withstand up to 16,000 ft. of seawater. Intrinsically safe (ATEX and CSA) versions are available with 4-20 mA output. Customer-specified electrical termination, full-scale ranges and special calibrations are also offered. Each of these units is shipped with a 5-point calibration record traceable to NIST as standard.

All of our Stellar Technology clevis pin load cells can be modified to meet your specific application.
