Dillon XC Compression Force Gauge


Proven accuracy and ruggedness sets the Dillon XC mechanical force gauge apart in the force measurement industry. The “D" shaped deflection beam is the heart of the Force Gauge system. Highly engineered materials with close machining tolerances and proper heat treatment provide optimum strength and spring characteristics.
Ideal for stand alone force applications or often used as the load defining component of a much larger system.
The Dillon XC compression calibration force gauge comes in 8 capacities ranging from 50 lb to 25,000 lb or 50 to 10000 kg. All XC force gauges feature accuracy of ±1% of full capacity, except the 25,000 (10,000 kg) capacity instruments which are accurate to ±2% of full capacity.
Load is applied against a hardened ball which rotates to maintain vertical alignment as pressure increases. The ball is held in place with a spring clip or retainer. A threaded mounting hole is located opposite the loading ball in the bottom of the beam.
Optional shockless dial indicator is available for installations involving the sudden application or release of force (maximum pointer cannot be supplied with shockless dial indicator). A maximum load pointer is also available, which remains at peak load until manually reset.
The Dillon XC compression gauge comes with force gauge assembly, carrying case and compressionloading spherical ball fitting (note: case is not included with the 25000 lb, 50000 lb, 10000 kg or 20000 kg models).

Dillon XPP Tension / Compression Calibration Push Pull Gauge


Proven accuracy and ruggedness sets the Dillon XPP mechanical force gauge apart in the force measurement industry. The “D" shaped deflection beam is the heart of the Force Gauge system. Highly engineered materials with close machining tolerances and proper heat treatment provide optimum strength and spring characteristics.
Ideal for stand alone force applications or often used as the load defining component of a much larger system
The Dillon XPP compression / tension calibration push pull gauge comes in 7 capacities in pounds ranging from 50050 lb up to and including 500005000 lb and 4 metric capacities from 50050 to 100001000 kg. Accuracy is ±1% of maximum dial reading (based on total capacity of both compression and tension scales).
Dillon Xpp gauges in capacities up to and including 100001000 lb or 5000500 kg are supplied with a set of selfaligning spherical rod end connectors for tension loading. Force is applied to connectors through a hardened steel pin which must be slip fit in connector holes.

Dillon XSeries Force Gauge Parts Identification
Principle of Operation
A Dshaped deflection beam is the heart of the Dillon X force gauge. Machined to close tolerances, beams are heat treated to develop optimum strength and spring characteristics. Highstrength aluminum is used in Dillon X series instruments through 200 lbs (200 kg). Ranges above this are fabricated from aircraftquality alloy steel.
A precision dial indicator is mounted at the null point of the deflection beam. The indicator plunger rests against a slanted anvil at the open end of the beam, as shown in the photo. Under compression loads, the two halves of the beam tend to close. Tension force causes them to move apart. This action pushes the plunger inward, as determined by the slant of the anvil. Readings produced on the dial are in direct relation to applied load. The pointer revolves 360 degrees clockwise under compression or tension forces. Pushpull gauges read half scale (180 degrees) clockwise in compression, counterclockwise, 180 degrees from center zero under tension loads.
Low Beam Deflection
When measured across the center of top and bottomloading holes, the approximate beam deflection is as follows:
 25 to 250 lb (10 to 100 kg) capacity  0.019"
 500 lb (200 kg) capacity  0.016"
 1000 lb (500 kg) capacity  0.018"
 2000 lb (1000 kg) capacity  0.011"
 5000 & 10000 lb capacity (2000 & 5000 kg)  0.010"
 25000 & 50000 lb capacity (10000 & 20000 kg)  0.022"
Overload Rating
Accidental overloads of 30% of capacity can be safely sustained without injury to the dial indicator or deflection beam. All capacities feature a 5:1 safety factor.
General Information
 To reset zero, loosen knurled bezellocking screw and rotate dial
 Dillon X series force gauges can be mounted horizontally, vertically or flat
 The baked enamel finish resists corrosion and rust
 Operating temperature up to 120 degrees fahrenheit
