How to determine the range of the yarn tension tester through the TEX parameters of the yarn?


when choosing a yarn tension tester, it is difficult to choose the corresponding model and tension range because you don't know the yarn tension tester well. The following introduces how to  determines the yarn tension range of ayarn tension tester by the yarn weight unit TEX.

First determine what the TEX of the yarn is. The larger the TEX number of the yarn, the larger tension range of the yarn tension tester required. The tension range of the yarn tension tester is determined by twice the TEX value of the yarn. For example, if the weight of the yarn is 75 tex, the safe range of the yarn tension tester should be 150g. The range of the yarn tension tester can be determined according to this rule.

Shenyang Betten Technology Co., Ltd. provides various types of yarn tension testers for you to choose from. The following are the parameters of the NK series yarn tension tester.

NK series Electronic tension meters is suitable for the measurement of fine materials such as textiles, chemical fiber wires, the measuring range is from 0.3-50.0g to 1-200g

New Features of Model NK Series

1. The patented technology automatically resets the meter to zero , which improves the measurement accuracy and facilitates measurement.

2. The tested material, the guide roller, and the screen are located on the same plane., the test data, the status of the guide roller and the tested material can be seen During the test.

3. The screen display direction can be changed according to the customer's holding method, which is convenient for reading.

4. g, c N can be selected as the unit for measuring value display.

5. Record the maximum value, minimum value and average value during the measurement.

6. Equipped with lead frame and guide roller movement structure, easy to capture the tested material

7. The measuring head of the NTS is a ball bearing V-groove guide roller with a maximum speed of 900 m / min

8.LIPO lithium-ion polymer battery (about 30 hours of continuous operation)
