Price: $ 1,665.00

Dillon AP Mechanical Dynamometer
For tension, traction and weight measurement
Available in capacities from 500 to 100,000 pounds, 200 to 50,000 kilograms, 2,000 to 500,000 Newtons

Originally designed to measure the tension on telephone wires, the Dillon AP Mechanical Dynamometer has proven to have limitless versatility as a tension and weight measuring instrument. The Dillon AP Mechanical Dynamometer is used for such diverse jobs as suspended weighing, mounting cables for bridges, adjusting tension on guy wires, field testing chain and rope as well as wire. Basically anything requiring precision force or tension measurement.

Dillon is the leader in dynamometers with the largest installed population throughout the world. The sturdy design, top grade components and premium coatings make it last for years in severe environments and applications: the pounding aboard military vehicles, rough handling in field measurements and even use underwater (Dillon recommends short intervals in clean water followed with rinse and drain). Embraced by industrial contractors across the globe, we are confident the AP will satisfy your most demanding applications.
