Tool that Measures Tension on Turn, Spiral Belts
Cambridge Engineered Solutions, Cambridge, Md., introduced a proprietary measuring system called Tug Tester to help customers obtain accurate tension readings on turn and spiral cage conveyor belts commonly used during the cooling and freezing stages of bakery and food processing.
The Tug Tester measures tangential tension by tier as belts cycle through systems. It can be used on various belt loads up to 1,000 pounds with measurements provided every two seconds for up to 20 hours at -10°F. Tug Tester is approved for use at operating temperatures from -40°F to 120°F.
Tug Tester includes a belt loading mechanism, rechargeable lithium ion battery and charger, software discs and necessary pins, adaptors and cables.
