Conveyor Horsepower Calculator Superior Industries
Calculate the value for load torque, load inertia, speed, etc. at the motor drive shaft of the mechanism. Refer to page 3 for calculating the speed, load torque and load inertia for various mechanisms. Select a motor type from AC Motors, Brushless DC Motors or Stepping Motors.Mar 09, 2006 If I ever need to calculate approximate conveyor power, for example on simple in-plant inclined conveyors, I often do the following simple calculation. Power = t h x lift x 2.72 x 1.3 kW From this you can easily calculate the torque, if you have the speed and pulley diameter from the following Torque = 9.55 x power divided by pulley rpm kN-m.
