The MB TENSOMETER is an instrument for measuring tension in flexible thin webs generally encountered in paper mills, such as:
- DRYER FELTS
- DRYER FABRICS
- PRESS FELTS
- PRESS FABRICS
- FORMING FABRICS
- SOME PAPER SHEETS
The operation is based on the principle that the amount of deflection of a flexible membrane under load is dependent upon the tensile stresses in the membrane.
The load is provided by an internal spring, and the amount of web deflection is measured by a dial indicator, calibrated in Kg. Per linear cm. The design of the instrument is such that the reading is normally unaffected by the amount of pressure applied by the operator. Further, the unique ‘picture frame’ bearing surface eliminates the effect of stress in adjacent areas of the web.
The MB TENSOMETER can be used on webs running in any angular attitude, and it can be applied on either side of a web. The magnitude of readings is also independent of speed or moisture content of the web.
The instrument can be used safely in wet surrounds since the internal mechanisms are protected by seals and rubber bellows.
The range of tension measurable with the instrument is 10.1 – 66.96 pounds per linear inch (1.8 – 12 Kg per cm). Accuracy is +/- 10 per cent of the converted tension reading.
