Tensology has used Crosby Straightpoint’s (SP) Clamp On Line Tensionmeter (COLT) to measure tension on eight .74in (19mm) diameter ropes that lift a very heavy, 50t capacity elevator at a major UK steel facility. Tensology used the COLT, which measures tension up to 11,000 lbf (lb. force) / 5,000 kgf (kg force) and up to 1 in. / 25mm diameter, to verify that each of the eight newly installed ropes were under the same tension. Any variance would have created a safety issue when the elevator was returned to work delivering materials to different levels of the steel-making factory.
