Interface has provided load cells for oil production monitoring for 20 years.
Interface has invested heavily in test equipment for petroleum exploration applications. Interface has the ability to test our load cells under load as well as under pressure (up to 30,000 psi) and temperature (to 500 degrees F). This research and testing capability has provided our customers in the oil exploration industry a valuable resource. Interface has proven experience in designing force transducers for extreme applications, meeting the most demanding requirements of our customers.
Interface tests every Low Profile™ load sensor for accuracy and temperature specifications, and moment compensates each unit to minimize sensitivity to extraneous loads. Using eight proprietary strain gages per sensor, our 4mV/V output well exceeds the goals for other load cell performance. Our calibration Gold Standard™ and Platinum Standard™ load cell families are used in testing most other brands of force sensors.
The following are just a few examples of oil production and exploration applications for load cells:
