The crushing capacity of most mechanical oilseed crushers is quoted in tons (US) per day. In some cases the capacity of a press is quoted in poulds per hour. If this is the case, multiply the pounds per hour by 24 and then divide the answer by 2,000 to get the capacity in terms of tons per day. In some cases the capacity will be listed in metric tonnes per day. To convert metric tonnes to US tons, multiply the capacity in metric tonnes by 1.1023.
