Ultra Under Pillow Block (UPB) Load Cells

Ultra UPB web tension transducer in machine frame The Cleveland-KidderŽ Ultra UPB Washdown-Duty LC measures and monitors precise tension on web process or wire machinery. With a completely sealed design (corrosion resisting and chemical resisting), this under-pillow-block style tension load cell is an ideal solution for demanding industrial environments, such as in the production of paper, steel, textiles, roofing shingles, linoleum, rubber, foil, and food products.

The Ultra UPB Washdown-Duty transducer is designed for use with pillow block bearings and rotating shaft installations. It has a compact low-profile block design that can be mounted at any angle and used for retrofit or for new machinery.

As with all Ultra Line tension load cells, UPB tension load cells are available in High Temperature and Vacuum Environment configurations.

The Ultra Line UPB Washdown-Duty LC uses a convenient mounting plate, making installation and replacement easier. Held in place by four corner bolts, the mounting plate is easily removed, drilled and tapped to match the pillow block mounting dimensions. The plate is then remounted and the pillow block bearing is bolted into place.

Available in three sizes and various MWF ratings
