TensioMaster

CORRECT TENSION = BETTER RUNNABILITY

Paper Machine Clothing tension affects dewatering, sheet properties, guiding, wear and total machine runnability. The ruggedly built Feltest TensioMaster is a compact precision instrument that measures the tension in running forming fabrics, press felts and dryer screens.

Suitable for forming, press and dryer fabrics

The travel of the sensing element is converted into fabric tension, as indicated on the calibrated dial. The maximum reading is held by a sliding pointer which can be easily reset. Accurate readings can therefore be taken in a safe way, even in dark places or difficult to reach areas.

Better runnability

Paper Machine Clothing running at a in-correct tension will have a negative effect on the machine’s runnability. Too low tension decreases the fabric’s stability, resulting in wrinkles and unplanned fabric changes. Too high fabric tension influences the fabric mesh and changes the dewatering behavior.

It’s easy, quick and reliable!

 
 
 

The effect of tension on fabric wear

An uneven tension over the machine width will guide the fabric to one side, requiring continuous counter-steering. A too slack fabric allows the driven roll to slip inside the fabric loop. Both phenomena are resulting in considerable fabric wear and profile problems.

Felt and wire tension is extremely important especially for drainage. I always endorse this to people.

EASE AND COMFORT ARE GOOD FOR BUSINESS

Machine stops should be as short as possible; hence paper machine clothing must be installed as quickly as possible. The Capto helps to achieve that. The Capto puller gives the operators the ease and comfort necessary to do the job more safely, quicker, and with less effort.

CHECKING THE VACUUM AT THE UHLE BOXES

Easily compare the vacuum on both tender and drive side of the paper machine. Find a discrepancy? Take away the cause (contamination inside the Uhle box, piping lay-out or valve dislocation) and use the RealVac to confirm your fix was successful.
