TSU Under Pillow Block Tension Load Cells for Live Shaft Rolls
Simply bolt the model TSU heavy-duty load cell under your present roll support bearings and they will accurately measure the tension forces on the machine sensing the roll created by the web. It can display and control the web tension through MAGPOWR tension readouts and controls.
The model TSU Load Cell is ruggedly constructed with built-in mechanical overload stops in both force directions, and will stand up to mill duty. A full Wheatstone bridge arrangement is incorporated in each load cell for the most accurate means of measuring web tension. Best used with two load cells, one under each pillow block bearing that supports the sensing roll. When installed in this manner, the load cells accurately measure the total force on the entire roll created by tension in the web, and the readout will be precisely displayed no matter what the position of the web.
