Conveyor belt Motor Power Calculation

Hello Designer,

I need to know if my calculation is correct or not for my belt conveyor used to transport tobacco product.

Belt length = 34m

Belt width = 1000 mm

load due to belt =1.8kg/m2

idler spacing = 0.51 m

load due to convoyed material is 15 Kg/m ...

[I]H= 1.2m[/I]

i used this formula:

[B][I]Tb[/I][/B][I] = 1.37*f*L*g*[2*mi+ (2*mb + mm)*cos (δ)] + (H*g*mm)

Tb is in [B]Newton[/B].

f = Coefficient of friction

L = Conveyor length in meters. Conveyor length is approximately half of the total belt length. =34 m

g = Acceleration due to gravity = 9.81 m/sec[SUP]2[/SUP]

mi = Load due to the idlers in [B]Kg/m[/B]. = 117.6

mb = Load due to belt in [B]Kg/m. =1.8 kg/m[/B]

mm = Load due to the conveyed materials in [B]Kg/m. = 15 kg/m[/B]

δ = Inclination angle of the conveyor in [B]Degree. zero[/B]

H = vertical height of the conveyor in [B]meters. 1.2 m[/B]

[/I]

[LIST][*][B]Load due to idlers (mi): T[/B]his can be calculated as below:[/LIST]

[B]mi [/B]= (mass of a set of idlers) / (idlers spacing)

[B][I]Pp [/I][/B][I]= (Tb*V)/1000

i found Tb= 3934.10 N

and power will be P=5.9 kw if speed 1.5 m/s this right ?!
