HTF Abrasive Pressure Calculator

Productive orbital floor sanding requires the right amount of force (pressure) to be applied to the abrasive so that it sands at its most efficient in relation to the size of abrasive grit. Typically more pressure is required the coarser the abrasive grit.

The HTF's design applies the ideal pressure across the whole surface area of the abrasive. For all types of wood floors and decking.

See for yourself, click the link below to calculate the abrasive pressure for different sanding pad sizes and machine weight.

Power Calculator

Calculator the Power (Watts) of a Hiretech product at different voltages and loads (Amps) based on Ohms Law. Enter the voltage and amps and click 'Calculate'.

Click 'Reset' to clear the result before starting a new calculation. You can enter values in any two fields to calculate the values of the other two empty fields.

Here's the maths.

Voltage (E) = Current (I) * Resitance (R)

Power (Watts) = Current Squared (I2) * Resitance (R)

Power = I * E = E2 / R

HTF Specifications:

Abrasive Size: Length 15.75" (40cm) x Width 4.5" (11.5cm")
Weight: 94.8lbs (45.0kg) without HTF weight, 176lbs (80kg) maximum recommended with HTF weight.

Other Common Orbital Floor Sander Specification

Abrasive Size: Length 18.0" (45.7cm) x Width 12.0" (30.5cm)
Weight (typical): 120lbs (54kg)

Note: Typically the weight of an 18" x 12" orbital floor sander is centred around the middle of the machine in-line with the motor and not evenly distributed over the whole of the sanding pad.

The HTF can apply up to nearly 41/2 times the force (pressure) to the abrasive than a typical 18" x 12" orbital floor sander.
