|Formula for calculating the length of auger required to fill a bin:|
STEP #1: Determine distance (H) from ground to eave of bin.
STEP #2: Add distance from Step #1 to 1/2 of bin diameter (D).
STEP #3: Multiply total figure from step 2 by 1.4.
STEP #4: The figure determined in Step 3 is the exact length of auger needed. Use the next longer length
of Westfield Auger
(H + 1/2D) x 1.4= Auger Length
|Determining the Flight Speed Needed|
|Gas Motor RPM=3,000 Electric Motor RPM=1,750|
(Top Sprocket/Bottom Sprocket) x (Motor Pulley/Auger Pulley) x Motor RPM = Flight Speed
|How to Calculate Pulley Size by Percentage|
STEP #1: Enter current pulley "Diameter".|
STEP #2: Multiply "Circumference" listed by percentage change, i.e. to lower speed by 20% mulitply circumference by .8.
STEP #3: Enter new "Circumference" figure from Step #2, to find new pulley diameter.
|How to Calculate Ground Length Measurement|
|Square the auger length (K) and the auger height (C). Subtract from the squared length (K).
The ground length (L) is the square root of this number.|
L = √ (KxK) - (CxC)
