Chainless How to Specify Curves

When specifying curves, list the curve radius, degree of curve and type of curve (Horizontal or Vertical -- Top or Bottom).
From the table below select the curve length for the specified curves. This information is necessary to calculate the conveyor overall length, and the maximum line pull.

R= Radius
D= Degree of curve
C= Radius of curve
P= Depth of curve
R D C P
3 0 30 1  6 7/8 4  13/16
4 0 30 2 11/8  6  7/16
5 0 30  2  7 7/16 8  1/16 
3 0 45 2  4 1/4 10  9/16
4 0 45 3  1 11/16  1 5 9/16
5 0 45 3  1 11/8 1 5 9/16
3 0 60 3  1 11/16 1 6
4 0 60 4  2 1/4 2 0
5 0 60 5 2 13/16 2 6
3 0 90 4 8 9/16
4 0 90 33/8
5 0 90 7 101/4
