Century Dial General Description

One of the keys to a successful product is simplicity in design and application. Typically, the simpler the product design, the greater the reliability. This philosophy is what has made the Century dial indicator our most successful instrument for almost 40 years. The Century dial indicator is self-powered by a hydraulic load cell, which makes it ideal for remote locations where electrical power is impractical or unavailable. This independence from electrical power also makes the system immune to power surges & failures, EMI/RFI, lightning strikes and other electrical problems that can plague electronic instrumentation.

The hydraulic load cell that powers the Century is a piston and cylinder assembly designed to convert weight or force into a proportional hydraulic pressure signal. The rugged load cell is ideal for harsh environments where shock loading, vibration, corrosion or stray electrical fields are a consideration. Some models are even equipped with a sliding top plate to accommodate the horizontal thermal expansion of large vessels.

Century dial indicators are available in five sizes, from 6 to 18", and can be remote mounted up to 200 feet (65m) from the scale location. Flexible hydraulic hose or PVC coated copper tubing connects the dial to the load cell. Self-sealing quick disconnect fittings come standard on most systems to allow easy installation of remote mounted Century indicators and to allow additional tubing length to be added in the field when necessary. All Century dials come standard with a manual tare adjustment knob and a built in pressure snubber. Optional accessories include our Satellite® 4-20mA transmitter, adjustable alarm set point and fixed alarm set point.
