REEL CAPACITY

Due to tolerances on diameters and variety of constructions of wire rope, it is difficult to calculate the maximum length of wire rope that can be spooled on a reel or drum. The formula below may be used to calculate reel capacities with at least one wire rope diameter below the flange diameter, for clearance ("X"). Calculated reel capacities are based on uniform rope winding on the reel.

Reel Diagram L = (A + D) x A x B x K

L = length of wire rope in feet
A = depth of rope space on reel in inches
B = width of drum between flanges in inches
D = barrel diameter in inches
K = constant for given wire rope diameter (per table below)
H = diameter in reel flange in inches
X = clearance

Diameter (inches) K Diameter (inches) K Diameter (inches) K

3/32 23.4 9/16 0.741 1 1/2 0.107
