This is a practical guide for the selection of a load cell in applications of tanks, vessels and silos. Keep in mind that there are other conditions or technical requirements to consider, and it should be taken as an orientation that may be valid for most cases. This guide is only suitable in systems totally supported on load cells and systems with uniformely distributed loads and without major asymetires. It is not suitable for systems where the power is transmitted to the cells through levers, systems with large asymmetries in the distribution of the load or systems with rolling loads. Capacity of the load cell The objective is to estimate the real load on each supporting point in all the operating circumstances and life of the weighing system, including extreme situations and to choose a load cell of a suitable Nominal Capacity with adequate safety margins.
