Dillon Crane Scales

A crane scale is a dynamometer / load cell / load links outfitted with equipment appropriate for suspended weighing, such as large openings in upper shackles, with hooks on the bottom and large dials for easy distant viewing. The inherent efficiency of the crane scale guarantees its continuing popularity. A correctly installed crane scale lets operators accomplish two things at once: allowing them to move materials and gather accurate weight data or inventory information in one step.
The ideal crane scale must be more than accurate. It's going to collide with other equipment and work in all kinds of environments so it has to be easy to read and unquestionably safe for overhead operation.

Dillon Mechanical & Digital Force Gauges

Mechanical force gauges are ultra-small instruments that display the force exerted between the two load points. Available in tension, compression or both (push-pull) versions, mechanical force gauges are generally used to monitor tension in a small cable or to measure compressive forces within a press.
Mechanical force gauges are simple to operate with one main operating function, ZERO. Some models may be equipped with a maximum pointer to retain peak reading.
These instruments are portable, factory precalibrated, and ready to work out of the box. Includes calibration certificate.

Dillon application stories

SWISS airline demonstrates the role of Dillon Dynamometers in aircraft maintenance

  • A video produced by Swiss International Airline's (SWISS) Technical Division shows how the Dillon AP Dynamometer and bootstrap kit is used to lift the company's 2.5 tonne engines and measure stress on the hoists and mounts.
  • SWISS serves over 100 destinations in 43 countries, carrying more than 16.5 million passengers a year. In addition to their fleet of 91 aircraft, the SWISS Technical Services division is one of the leading maintenance, repair and overhaul providers in the regional aircraft sector. Qualified specialists service all of the aircraft in the SWISS fleet at regular intervals, all of which involves the use specialist equipment such as the dynamometer featured in the video.
  • The video, which shows an engine being completely overhauled, shows how the engine is removed using bootstrap equipment. The engine cradle is positioned under the engine then lifted until the mount point can be attached to the engine. Once the fuel and electrics etc have been disconnected, the engine mount bolts are loosened and the engine is removed ready for maintenance. The process is reversed when hoists these huge engines back into position.
  • The critical factor when removing and replacing engines, whether for maintenance or replacement, is pre-tensioning the hoists used to lift the engine. Too little tension can mean that the weight of the engine causes it to drop at the point when it is disconnected, while too much can damage the pylon and mounts. With engine mounts alone supporting the entire 2.5 tonne weight of the engine, plus in-flight forces adding further stress, ensuring that they are not subject to undue stress is a critical safety measure.
  • Originally designed to measure the tension on telephone wires, the Dynamometer has proven to have limitless versatility as a tension and weight measuring instrument. It is used for such diverse jobs as suspended weighing; mounting cables for bridges; adjusting tension on guy wires; field testing chain, rope, wire, anything requiring precision force or tension measurement.
  • Watch the video to see how the AP Dynamometer is used by SWISS to pre-tension the hoists for aircraft maintenance.

Canopy Tours select Dillon Quick Check to ensure Zip-Line safety
Zip-Line safety

  • As one of South Africa"s fastest growing eco-adventures, Canopy Tours® is a zip-line adventure that takes thrill seekers on a journey through the treetops on a set of platforms connected by steel cables.
  • Needless to say, with many of the zip-lines at the company's seven sites set high above the forest canopy, safety is paramount and cables are subject to regular and exacting checks. The Dillon Quick-Check tension meter offers an ideal solution to measure cable tension an extremely important element of zip-line safety. As well as the more obvious safety concern of the level of strain put on the anchor points, the tension on the line also has a direct impact on the rider"s speed and altitude.
  • Mark Brown, joint company founder, explains; As a civil engineer by trade, I understand the importance of good design, construction, and maintenance to any kind of built-structure. The Dillon Quick check allows us to measure the tension of the cables, which is a critical safety measure. Having cables set too slack could result in a rider stopping before they reach the platform, while the correct tension will allow the rider to maintain a safe and consistent speed until the end of the line. At Canopy Tours, where clients trust us with their lives and the well-being of their family or friends, safety is absolutely our number one priority.
  • Each branch"s zip-line system has been designed and certified by a qualified engineer, with maintenance and measurement of the tension of the zip-line cables carried out at regular intervals.
  • The Dillon Quick-Check can be placed on the zip-line cable, measure its tension, and be removed in under five seconds, simplifying the process for the Canopy Tour engineers by removing the need for complex lookup tables or conversion charts. The operator can quickly select from 20 pre-calibrated wire sizes and types stored in Quick-Check"s memory, saving time and ensuring accuracy. In addition, the tensioning mode graphically displays the current and target tension control limits for extremely quick setting of line tension, ensuring quick and precise measurement.
  • Mark continues, The Dillon Quick-Check tension meter is ideal because it is a portable product, which is easy to use and guarantees high accuracy and safety. We do our utmost to ensure that our clients are safe and, importantly, that they feel safe at all times, so that they can truly enjoy the experience we take them on. Why? Because our business depends on it.

ALBAT Apprentices use EDxtreme for Training in Outside Electrical Construction
ALBAT Apprentices

  • Due to the nature of electrical construction industry work, The American Line Builders Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee (ALBAT) apprentices learn their career skill through practical, "hands-on" training, reinforced by classroom instruction. With courses covering topics such as Rigging Essentials and OSHA 10 Electrical Transmission and Distribution, it is important that the apprentices have hands-on experience of the tools and equipment used in the trade.
  • Daniel Doss, Director at ALBAT, explains, The Dynamometer is used for apprentices to test fundamental knowledge on processes of working on transmission lines. One example is learning how to measure the tension/sagging on lines, which is absolutely vital to health and safety, so a crucial skill to learn.
  • While erecting an overhead line, it is very important that the conductors are under a safe tension. If the conductor wires are too stretched, the stress in the conductor can reach unsafe value and in certain cases may break due to excessive tension. Over tensioning of the conductors also puts great strain on the supporting poles, which can result in their collapse in extreme weather conditions. In an overhead line, the sag should be adjusted so that tension in the conductors is within the recommended safe limits. Dillon dynamometers are often used in these circumstances, offering a portable, factory pre-calibrated solution which is ready to work out of the box.
  • ALBAT is a cooperative labor-management training program funded and administered by the American Line Builders Chapter of NECA and the 4th and 6th Districts of the IBEW. The program provides world-class training for individuals in the skills of performing outside electrical construction and utility work. ALBAT works with the electrical training ALLIANCE (ETA) who develops and standardizes training to educate the members of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), the largest electrical union in the world. With such a huge and far-reaching role in the training of new and upcoming outside electrical workers, ALBAT must ensure that the training they offer is second-to-none.
  • As part of the practical training, we use real-life simulations to test the apprentices knowledge. We use Dillon dynamometers because Dillon is such as well-known brand within our industry. Using the same equipment for training as is being used out in the field really helps our apprentices to become familiar with the tools of the trade.
