Total power=Power to run an empty conveyor+Power to move the material
L=total length of conveyor(ft)
Fd=conveyor diameter factor
fb=hanger bearing factor
L=total length of conveyor(feet)
W=weight of material(Ib/ ft3)
Grape pomace characteristics
Intermediate material code=D3-45U
U= Miscellaneous properties
Bearing selection=H is used to properly select the intermediate hanger bearing.
Component series code=2 is used to determine the correct components.
Material factor(Fm)=1.4 is used in determining horsepower.
Trough loading capacity=30 A the proper percent of cross section loading to use in determining diameter and speed of the conveyor.
C=15 kg/s*3600s/hr* 2.205 Ib/kg * ft3/20Ib=5953.5ft3/hr
N=55 rpm (deal with capacity)
Fd=55 (deal with screw diameter)
fb=4.4 (deal with using bearing type)
Ff=1.0 deal with using Trough loading (30 A)
Fm=1.4 it is material factor
Fp=1.0 (paddle factor)
