# Accumulator Torque and tension calculations

## where w*t*s*n*7.86*.000001= weight of strip

D= diameter of winch
T= required tension
n= Number of falls
t= thickness of strip
s= displacement of moving frame in mm
Assumptions: weight of counterweight is equal to weight of the frame
weight of strip is negligible as compared to tension
For a simple cross check of the calculation the following formula can be used

## HP = tension * speed/4500 ………………….B

Now, Multiply this torque with 1.44 and the required torque of the machine is available. Match it with
required Kw machine which will give the same torque.

## We take the example of the Exit accumulator of CSD1,

here,
T = 600
n= 26 (in case of modifcation of line
Linear speed = 150 MPM

By the formula B

HP = 600*150/4500
HP= 20
Considering Duty factor of 1.5 times =22 KW

## Winch Dia (D) = 350mm

Displacement (s) = 9720 mm
No. of falls (n) = 26
Tension (T) = 600 Kgs
Strip width (w) = 1000 mm
Thickness (t) = 0.40 mm
GR = 187

Now,
D/4*GR = .350/(4*187)
= .000468
weight of strip = 26*1000*.40*97200*7.86*.00001
=795 Kgs

## Total Tension = n*T

= 26 *600
=15600 Kgs
Torque =.000468*(15600+795)
= 7.68
As per this Motor required KW =11.3 Kw
In case of Accumulator due to heavy duty requirement of the machine it is multiplied by 1.8 t0 2.0
time ,therefore required Kw suitable is 22 Kw.

## II: To find out the Kw requirement for a Bridles:

T1

T2

The above shows that a geometrical progression and therefore the tension progression will be as follows

say
T1 = 500 kgs
T2 = 1500 Kgs
Ration between T2 and T1 =1500/500 =3
The intermittent tension =√3*T1
i.e., =866 Kgs

Now for The total bridle power and also for the individual Bridle power we can calculate the HP or
Kw
