The 136-2 Hand-Held Tension Meter accurately measures the running line tensions of dry or wet felts on papermaking machines. It can also be used for sieves as well as for certain fabric and woven products. And, because the 136-2 is portable, it can easily be moved from line to line as needed.
The 136-2 features a spring-loaded handle, which eliminates errors, caused by uneven pressure applied by operators. It makes taking measurements as simple as pressing the sensor gently on the web until the handle reached the mechanical stop. Ball-bearing mounted rollers support the measurement head at speeds up to 1000 m/min. For higher speeds, a low friction, ceramic-coated stabilizing plate is offered.
Not only does the 136-2 measure static and dynamic web tensions, but it also makes it possible to compare the tension in different parts of the web. The rugged 136-2 is fabricated from Stainless Steel and is water-resistant and rustproof, ensuring trouble-free use even in wet environments. The tension value is displayed on either the D485 Digital Tension Indicator or TM353 Analog model. The indicators can be mounted together with the sensor or used separately connected with a cable.
