### calculator power to drive conveyor

Calculate the driving chain conveyor power, using the data above. F x R1 = P x R = a) P is the force to carry up the sugar cane plus the chain weight, as we calculated before: P = Fs + Fi + Fk = 1955 + 204 +1096 = P = 3255 kgf (7177 lbf) Or, P = 4254 (9380 lbf) according to Tsubaki formula.
