Sums Made Simple — The New BS Stainless Coil Calculator

Carrying out the various complex calculations required to correctly identify the various dimensions of stainless steel banding can be a time-consuming and difficult process. We are proud to introduce our brand-new Coil Calculator which takes all of the hard work out of the process, allowing for a range of dimensions to be instantly calculated at the touch of a button.

The Coil Calculator can be used in a number of ways to give various results. Users can calculate the approximate weight, outside diameter, weight per mm width or length of any given amount of stainless steel coil or strip by simply entering the known parameters into the relevant field of the handy online calculator.

One advantage offered by the Coil Calculator is that it enables our customers working in stainless steel processes to check if a particular weight or length of stainless steel coil will fit on the intended piece of machinery, allowing them to choose a different standard size or arrange for a bespoke service if required. The Coil Calculator also allows customers to calculate how many metres of banding will be supplied when buying, as it most common, by weight; this is often necessary for stainless steel banding users who have a fixed amount of linear metre requirements for fixing of cladding or jacketing often around the circumference of a tank or pipe.

Before using the Coil Calculator, customers are presented with a concise yet detailed diagram of a typical stainless steel coil, with the various dimensions clearly labelled for ease of reference when gathering and then inputting values. Upon clicking 'Calculate', a full list of results is instantly displayed and a handy 'Reset' button quickly clears the fields in order to allow a new set of values to be calculated. The Coil Calculator is designed to use highly-accurate details but should be used only as a guide before ordering from our skilled team, who will be able to definitively verify the results.
