Motor sizing query for design project.

  1. Jan 11, 2012 #1
    Hi there - this is my first post and I hope one of many to come!

    My query is a relatively simple one; I'm working with an engineering cleaning application where fluid will be fed into a cylindrical block and spun out into a surrounding container.

    The block is 3.5m long and ∅0.140m, weighing in at 92kg. It sits inside a vacuum chamber weighing 48.6kg, total 140.6kg.

    I think a belt drive solution will be most practical from a design perspective, and I'm trying to size the motor to drive the load at a frequency of minimum 500RPM.

    It's a long time since I've done this sort of calculation.
