Morehouse Introduces a Quick-Change Tension Member Calibration System

Force application without distortion

Published: Wednesday, July 13, 2016 - 15:01

(Morehouse: York, PA) -- Morehouse Instrument Co. introduces the quick change tension member calibration system.

This system allows laboratories to calibrate load cells so the force application is not distorted. The spherical used in the tension members minimize eccentric forces by improving vertical alignment. The result is improved repeatability, which can allow lower measurement uncertainty.


Here a load, with a quick change adapter, is being placed into the bottom tension member of a Morehouse calibration system.
