WSI manufacture Submersible load cells under BEST brand and model no BSML. These load cell can be used where the load is to be measured while the load cell is submerged in oil or water or Triaxial chambers.

These load cells are designed to measure compressive loads in triaxial chambers. A limited range of tension load can also be measured.

An internal pressure compensation system is the feature of the design which eliminates zero offset changes when the load cell is subjected to external pressure changes. Being insensitive to cell confining pressure, the load cell can be used in triaxial chambers, measuring the load from within the chamber also eliminates the effects of piston friction.

The use of specially elected heat treated stainless steel and precision strain gauges ensure optimum performance and excellent long term stability.
