The speed at which the conveyor moves 2007-04-17
From Sheila:
I am trying to figure out the speed (ft/min) of a conveyor. It has a 1HP, 1200 RPM motor with a reducer that has a ratio of 60:1. My reducer sprocket pitch diameter is 7.027 and my drive sprocket pitch diameter is 11.474. How do I use this information to find the speed at which the conveyor moves?
