## How do you select a motor for chain conveyor?

Belt **conveyor** with a Bodine 42A-FX PMDC gearmotor and WPM DC **motor** speed control. In order to size a gearmotor, we need to identify: Speed (N) – The speed required to drive the application per its specifications. T_{ACCEL} – The reflected acceleration torque.

## How do you calculate horsepower for a conveyor?

Since one horsepower (HP) = 33,000 ft-lbs/min, required conveyor drive power may be expressed in HP as follows, **(Te in lbs) x (V in fpm)/((33,000 ft-lbs/min)/HP) = HP**.

## How do you calculate motor power for a roller conveyor?

**Motor Power Calculation for Roller Conveyors**

- Length of roller – 600mm.
- Weight of roller – 8 kg.
- Diameter of roller – 60mm.
- Roller material – M.S.
- Transportable mass – 100 kg.
- Number of rollers in conveyor – 6 Nos.
- Length of conveyor-800mm.

## How do you choose a motor?

There are several characteristics that you need pay attention to when selecting a motor but **voltage, current, torque, and velocity** (RPM) are most important. Current is what powers the motor and too much current will damage the motor. For DC motors, operating and stall current are important.

## How do you calculate chain pull?

To determine the chain pull due to friction, **multiply total moving load by selected friction factor**. A. Multiply total live load from (E) in Step #3 by friction factor of . 025.

## How much power does a conveyor belt use?

Abstract. High capacity conveyor belts are driven with two or four slip-ring induction motors. The investigated conveyor belt is characterised by capacity of 11000 m3/h and is driven with two four slip-ring induction motors rated at **630 kW each**.

## How do you calculate the TPH of a belt conveyor?

CAPACITY (TPH) **= .** **03 x Belt Speed (FPM) x material weight (lb.** **per cu.** **ft.)**
