The CHECK-LINE model 136-3P Tension Meter accurately measures tension on braided carrier ropes used in the paper making process.. even at speeds up to 3000 meters/min. Large, ball-bearing mounted rollers insure the ropes of different diameters run smoothly through the tension meter.

Special overload protection is provided to withstand the repetitive shock each time the splice in the continuous loop passes over the roller.

Tension ranges of 20, 30 and 50Kg are typical, however many other ranges are available.


  • Measures accurately on ropes of all diameters
  • Easy material threading - rollers all on one side
  • High overload capacity
  • Water-resistant design
  • Measurement is quick, easy and SAFE since the operator simply presses the 3 rollers on to the same side of the carrier rope.
