Levelling Feet – Free Floating Feet

Levelling Feet – Free Floating Feet

A levelling foot or free floating foot is the most common method of point loading a single ended load cell. These are threaded into the end of the load cell and used to transfer the weight to the ground.

Highlights

  • Point loading mount for single ended shear beam load cell
  • Screws into load cell and is adjusted for height to level the platform
  • Ball joint swivel accommodates some motion of load
  • Rubber base provides friction to reduce movement at floor contact
  • Welded steel plates also available for hard mount to floor
  • Ideal for floor scales, livestock scales, and batching/vessel weighing applications
  • Standard sizes: M12; 1/2″-20UNF;3/4″16UNF;1″-14UNS
  • Stainless steel options
  • Custom Massload manufactured options for rugged industrial environments
  • 1 year warranty – standard
  • 2 year warranty – Custom

Product Details

The single ended load cell can be used as the weigh sensor in a variety of applications including floor scales, blenders, hoppers, tank scales, and platform sensors. Point loading can take place via load cell assemblies or via levelling feet / free floating feet.
