# How do you size a conveyor belt motor?

## How do you size a conveyor belt motor?

- Step 1: Determine speed and torque. In order to size a gearmotor, we need to identify:
- Step 1: Determine speed and torque, continued. TACCEL (oz-in.) = [
- Step 2: Determine the type of motor/gearmotor that is best for the application.
- Step 3: Select a Gearmotor.
- Step 4: Select a Stock Product.

**How do you match a motor to a pump?**

The power required to drive the pump at the rated design condition should always be less than the nameplate horsepower rating of the motor. So if the pump will require 4.5 HP at the design condition, at a minimum, the motor should be sized for 5 HP – the next nominal size above 4.5 HP.

**Which motor is suitable for conveyor belt?**

AC induction motors are ideal for conveyor systems that operate continuously in one direction. For conveyor systems where the load must be held in place or for vertical applications, there are a wide range of AC motors with power-off activated electromagnetic brake.

### How do you calculate motor selection?

Divide the motor speed by the required speed and round down to get a starting gear ratio. Then divide the required torque by the gear ratio to find the newly required torque. This will help you narrow the choices down to a few select motors.

**How do you calculate belt conveyor speed with motor RPM?**

How do you calculate conveyor speed? A conveyor speed, or in this case the linear belt speed, can be calculated using the formula pi/2*D*RPM/60. In this formula, D is diameter and RPM is the rotations per minute of the conveyor. The value is then divided by 60 to convert the speed into distance per second.

**How is pump motor rating calculated?**

Pump Hydraulic Power (ph) = (D x Q x H x9. Pump Hydraulic Power (ph) = (1000 x 0.005 x 65 x9. 87)/1000 =3KW. Motor/ Pump Shaft Power (ps)= ph / pe = 3 / 80% = 4KW. Required Motor Size: ps / me =4 / 90% = 4.5 KW.

#### Which motor is suitable for pump?

The motor type used on most hydraulic pump drives is the 3-phase, squirrel cage, induction motor, of integral HP in therange of 1 to 500 HP.

**How do you calculate motor drive torque for belt and pulley system?**

To calculate load torque, multiply the force (F) by the distance away from the rotational axis, which is the radius of the pulley (r). If the mass of the load (blue box) is 20 Newtons, and the radius of the pulley is 5 cm away, then the required torque for the application is 20 N x 0.05 m = 1 Nm.

**How do you calculate RPM for conveyor belt?**

Calculate the belt speed using the formula V = pi/2*D*RPM = 3.14159/2*50*15/60 = 19.634 m/s.
