Calculator Description
Reel Capacity Calculator v1
The reel capacity calculator provides maximum length of cable, cord or pipe your specified reel will accommodate, or how big your reel or bobbin needs to be to accommodate your specified length of cable

Reel Capacity


Reels, or drums, are used to contain a specified length of cord, wire or flexible member (e.g. flexible or steel pipe) dependent upon its packing density. A high packing density (100%) will require perfect fleeting. A low packing density (50%) will mean that little control has been exercised over wrapping. Anywhere in between will reflect the fleeting quality used to fill the reel.


Reels has two calculation options Capacity and Size;

Capacity calculates the length of pipe or cable that can be accommodated within the outside diameter of the reel flanges based upon the packing density

Size calculates the size of reel (diameter or width) that can accommodate a specified length and diameter of pipe or cable.

Both calculation options require you to enter a value for packing density.

For help using this calculator see Technical Help
