Which set/size of wheels should I get

Post by SpecialEd » Wed Jul 18, 2018 5:00 am

Good morning, Folks!

Well, my build is coming right along, but I'm unsure on what wheels I should get. I've seen ameribrade sets, but I'm not sure what size motor wheel I should get for my set up for my 2HP 3600RPM motor.

I've already purchase a motor and VFD.

Motor-3600RPM, 2Hp ( I know I will only get 1.5hp seeing that I'm power my VFD with 120V)

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!!

The larger is faster, but you loose power. Im going to use 120mm.
120mm drive is 0.06m x 2 x 3.14 x 3500/60 = 22m / s
