Belt Tension Testers, & Accessories

Appropriate tension, installation, and maintenance can boost belt life and reduce costly downtime. Tension testing with a spring tester can be challenging, making it difficult to get exact readings. Belt tension testers such as the Gates Sonic Tension Meter make it easy to get fast and accurate readings. The tension meter works on the theory that belts, like strings, vibrate at a particular natural frequency based on mass and span length. The Gates Sonic Tension Meter converts this frequency into a measurement of tension.

The Model 550C Sonic Tension Meter with flexible flat sensor is suitable for multi-ribbed belts, V-belts, and synchronous belts.

The Gates pencil-type belt tension tester, model 740176, is suitable for use with small V-belts and timing belts in power transmission applications. The maximum deflection force is 30 pounds.
