Sound-wave sensor helps to adjust drive belts
Drive belts for fans and pumps in HVAC applications can be accurately tightened with the use of a digital tension meter from PIX Europe. The right tension makes an important contribution to energy efficiency and service life. It also helps prevent the belt breaking, bearing damage, motor overheating and slippage.
This tension meter analyses sound waves from the belt through a detachable sensor and process the signal to give an accurate display of tension.
