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.
