    If it's just general material handling, loading or unloading hoppers/bins, hit the farm implement mfrs./dealers for power and rates. If it's for extrusion, not my area.

    Just for general material handling (transportation through pipe) exit mass flow formula. Not for extrusion or injection molding.
    thanks for fast replies ! :)
