Vertical Screw Conveyor Rpm Calculation

Based on my interpretation of what my little slide rule indicates that if youre moving 10,000 lbs of portland cement per hour in an 20 inch diameter screw that is 45 max recommended loaded, the screw speed should be about 100 rpm.If the conveyor is 100 feet long the hp required is about 1.4 hp to move the material.
