c. Determining service factors for chain drives.
d. Identifying lubrication requirements for chain drives.
e. Drive power and volume capacity for horizontal and inclined drag chain conveyors.

The calculations within this live spreadsheet will facilitate the initial design and engineering of many types of chain conveyors.
