The handheld Zivy tension meter accurately measures the running line tension of yarns and fibers. Well known and used worldwide for circular knitting and similar applications, the Zivy 5 model tension meter is pocket sized and a favorite for mechanics and machine operators.
Features two precision ball bearing mounted V-grooved rollers capable of measuring high line speeds.
The handheld Zivy tension meter is designed for one hand operation. To acquire sample, place the material between the two guide rollers. Push and hold the button on the top of the instrument. The outer roll will be pivoted to the top and the device is ready to measure.
Supplied in a foam fitted, hard plastic carrying case with instructions and a spanner wrench to remove the roller (if necessary).
