The capacity chart below will allow you to roughly estimate the size of the conveyor and the speed based on the throughput requirements in cubic feet per minute (cubic liters/min). The horizontal lines represent the velocity at which your product will pass through the conveyor. The vertical lines indicate the volumetric throughput rate in liters per minute. The diagonal lines are the sizes of the conveyors available.
But don't think you have to figure out which conveyor will work best for your application. Our sales engineers can do that for you!
There are many factors that enter into the tubular conveyor selection process. Beyond the mechanical selection described above, we consider the physical characteristics of the material to be conveyed and the equipment duty cycle.
|Feet/Minute (Meters/Min)||3" (75mm)||4" (100mm)||5" (125mm)|
|60 (18)||2 cft/min (55 l/min)||4 cuft/min (115 l/min)||6 cuft/min (170 l/min)|
|120 (36)||4 cuft/min (115 l/min)||7.5 cuft/min (200 l/min)||11.5 cuft/min (325 l/min)|
|140 (43)||4.5 cft/min (125 l/min)||8.5 cuft/min (225 l/min)||13.5 cuft/min (380 l/min)|
