### Calculating Conveying Capacities- Need to Know

Now that we have capacity and density, we can calculate a rate per hour. As an example, let's assume we need to transport 1 ton of soybeans per hour with a screw conveyor. Is this achievable with a 6 inch conveyor? Our manufacturer says we can transport 180 cubic feet / hour. Our soybeans are whole and have a density of approximately 47 pounds/cubic foot. Simply multiply the density by the
