Belt Tension Meters are devices used to measure the strength of belt tension.
In general, Belt Tension Meters are used to measure the strength of tension by pushing the belt on the pulleys with a tester and measuring the amount of deflection and repulsive force. Although anyone can easily measure the tension by simply pushing the belt with a tension meter, there is a disadvantage in that the measurement depends largely on the intuition of the person measuring the tension, and the results may vary from person to person.
Recently, Belt Tension Meters using sound waves are also used as a more quantitative method of measuring tension.
There are many machines with rotating mechanisms that use belts and pulleys to transmit rotational power. Adjustment of belt tension is essential to maintain the performance of such machines. Therefore, Belt Tension Meters are used in the maintenance of all kinds of machinery, from household cars to industrial equipment.
It is important to adjust the belt tension properly, because too low a belt tension will reduce the efficiency of power transmission, and too high a belt tension will cause belt and pulley malfunctions and damage.
Belt Tension Meters can be broadly classified into two types: those that use sound waves for measurement and those that measure the amount of deflection.
