Output Rates
Vol. 17 #4, Mar. 1991

Many times, it is necessary to cut lengths of product over a period of time and weigh to determine lbs./hr. Especially small profiles and tubing.

Instead of 60 seconds, use 36 seconds or a multiple of it. There are 3600 seconds in an hour and a 36 second rate X 100 gives lbs./hr. directly.
