   ROPE TENSION GAUGE

  

  Easy to use tool to test tension of your ropes so that you save wear and tear on your sheaves.


Model RTG
• Application (Refer to drawing)

1. After hoist ropes have been installed,
take fully assembled RTG and loop
hook #1 around one of the hoist ropes.
Do this approximately 3 feet or more
above counterweight shackles.

2. Place pivot #2 against rope.

3. Adjust scale #3 with stretch and attach
hook to hoist rope.

4. Take readings. Preferred range for
proper tensioning is between 26 and
30 lbs. Tighten ropes to achieve this
reading.

5. Repeat procedures 1- 4 two more
times, once below deflection sheave
and once above car top fittings.


NOTE: A & B dimensions will vary
according to cable diameter and load
on cables.
At no time should the variance between ropes exceed 4 lbs.
