TITLE  
Weight strain gauge for pulling tasks
ARTICLE
Description

The weight strain gauge is a simple piece of equipment which prevents the potential for ropes and chains to snap when pulling heavy objects. The gauge gives a continuous remote reading of the weight being pulled. The operation can be stopped before the line fails. The gauge will weigh up to 10 tonnes and can also be used to test the weight of objects before starting a task.

Benefits

• The gauge has taken out risks associated with pulling and lifting tasks
• The operation can be monitored from a safe distance of up to 200m by the remote pad
• The operator has time to stop a task if anything does start to go wrong
