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.
In order to move the load (blue box), the motor must generate more torque than this value. To calculate load torque, multiply the force (F) by the distance away from the rotational axis, which is the radius of the pulley (r). If the mass of the load (blue box) is 20 Newtons, and the radius of the pulley is 5 cm away, then the required torque for the appliion is 20 N x m = 1 Nm.
25/11/2017 · As we are looking for motor power selection for Roller Conveyors as per the following: 1. Length of roller – 600mm 2. Weight of roller – 8 kg 3. Diameter of roller – 60mm 4. Roller material 5. Transportable mass – 100 kg 6. Number of rollers in conveyor 6 Nos. 7. Length of conveyor800mm Mechanism of roller to roller drive is chain sprocket.
09/03/2006 · If I ever need to calculate approximate conveyor power, for example on simple inplant inclined conveyors, I often do the following simple calculation. Power = t/h x lift x x kW From this you can easily calculate the torque, if you have the speed and pulley diameter from the following: Torque = x power divided by pulley rpm kNm
