May 28, 2019 – Feltest‘s TensioMaster tension gauge combines high accuracy with a wide measuring range and durability for paper machine clothing. 

Correct tension equals improved runnability, decreased costs and improved productivity. The Feltest TensioMaster measures felt quality and felt tension, and checks the tension control felt.

Common problems include less fabric stability, wrinkles, fabric wear, changing dewatering behavior, distorted paper profiles, increased bearing load, broken rolls and torn fabrics. 

The TensioMaster mechanical tension gauge is calibrated for forming fabrics, but is also suitable to measure changes in felts and dryer fabrics. It prevents wrinkles, torn fabrics and avoids unplanned downtime. It has a measuring range 0.5 – 20 N/mm.
