Produced in capacities from 50 to 500 tonnes. The shackle body is manufactured of galvanised alloy steel. The shackle pin is made from Stainless Steel and is retained in the shackle body by means of a nut and split pin. An anti-rotation device is incorporated in the pin to ensure correct alignment. The pin itself is through bored and strain gauges are internally resin bonded at both shear planes.
A close fitting tapered steel bobbin is included to ensure that the load is applied through the midline of the shackle pin. Our range of Marine Load Cell Shackles are proof tested to 200% of the Shackle WLL and come with a 5:1 factor of safety. Operational Temperature Range -20ºC to +80ºC.
