### Conveyor Power and Torque Calculator - EICAC

CONVEYOR POWER CALCULATOR. Use this calculator to calculate the force, torque and power required from a conveyor to move a load at an angle. If your conveyor is horizontal enter an angle of 0. Enter your values for the Mass, Diameter, Beltspeed, Friction and Angle; select your units as required. MASS TO MOVE (M) DIAMETER OF DRIVE DRUM (D): BELTSPEED (S): COEFFICIENT OF

More### Control Engineering Example: Driving a chain conveyor

12/06/2012 Calculating the optimum motor size depends on considering all the variables and following the right equations. For example, simply calculating the total resistance that the motor has to overcome involves the weight and friction of the conveyor itself carrying the load, additional friction when a box hits the stop, plus the efficiency of the gear unit itself attached to the motor.

More### torque - Sizing a motor for a conveyor - Electrical

If you're sizing a motor for a conveyor in an industrial plant, what other data other than the voltage (likely 480V in north america) and the mass of the load do you have readily available. Companies that manufacture conveyor systems probably have software tools that calculate the motor size for them. But for someone who doesn't have this software, how does one go about determining what size ...

More### Calculation of Drag chain RPM Motor power

02/02/2014 'Drag chain' could refer to a reclaimer; scraper chain conveyor; apron feeder etc. Each has its own particular drag force. Selected chain speed determines rpm and motor power is chain speed x drag but usually factored according to the drive duty. Maybe it doesn't help much: but neither does the question.

an efficient means of transmitting power since it was invented by Hans Renold in 1880. Later the principle was applied to conveyor chain giving the same advantages of precision, heat-treated components to resist wear, high strength to weight ratio and high mechanical efficiency. Renold conveyor chain is made up of a series of inner and outer links. Each link comprises components
