Calculation of RPMs for Mechanizing a Vertical Cane Mill

(Calculated for a roller surface speed of 27 feet min-1, Goldens' recommendation.) Faster speeds do not allow the juice to drip from the pomace before it is ejected. In addition, the base-plate design for some mills does not accept large volumes of juice without overflowing.)
