Beesley Balance


Presto’s Beesley balance is used for calculating direct yarn count. The weighing scale is made of an aluminum shaft which revolved at a bracket with the help of two crystal bearing. The beam on both the sides is equipped with a stainless steel hook for placing the yarn. The pointer side of the shaft is provided with a slot for hanging the weight. The beam assembly is fixed in a metal sheet box which has a transparent sliding window for evading the air flow in the instrument.

Presto’s Beesley Balance is equipped with a template to prepare the specimen of different sizes. Once the fabric is produced, it goes through the process of weaving, dyeing, bleaching, etc. These processes increase or decrease the measurement of fineness of fabric. Hence, to determine the fineness or counts of yarn, Bessley Balance is widely used.

In the Direct system, Yarn Count refers to the thickness of a thread and is measured by its mass per unit length.

For instance,

Tex = Number of Grams in 1 Km length of Yarn,

Denier = Number of Grams in 9000m of Yarn


1 Denier = 1/9 of a Tex.


In Indirect System, the count refers to a fixed number of units of fixed length of a thread which provides fixed weight.


For instance,

Cotton = No. of Hanks in 1 Pound of thread,

Metric = No. of Kilometers of thread in 1 kilogram.


Irrespective of the methodology of counts, there are two basic requirements for measuring counts:

  • Accurate Length of a specimen
  • Accurate weight of a specimen
