allows the two wheels to turn at different speeds. To reduce load, another spider gear is usually added on top meshing also with the two side gears and rotating in the opposite direction as the other spider gear. 2. Overall Gear Ratio: Driven/Driver = 15/10 = 3:2 or 1.5 Clockwise

Conveyor operates 3-10 hours per day and head shaft speed will be 36 RPM. Calculations indicate that 2000-inch pounds of torque needed at conveyor head shaft. 1. What is the service factor? a. 1.25 2. What is the overall drive ratio? a. RPM Driver/RPM Driven = 1750/36 = 48.61 3. If belt drive used for secondary reduction, what is the ratio of worm gear reducer? Belt drive ratio is 1.215.

a. Drive Ratio/Belt Drive Ratio = 48.61/1.215 = 40 4. What is the actual torque at the reducer output shaft a. Torque/Belt Drive Ratio = 2000/1.215 = 1646.1 5. What is the normal torque? a. Actual x Service Torque = 1646.1 x 1.25 = 2057.63 6. What is the selected size of the reducer based on mechanical rating?
