    RLA to Tons

    I don't think there is an equation for this, but is there a rule of thumb that converts RLA to tons?

    generally speaking...no. the only time that you can accurately use RLA is under design conditions, which you rarely have...RLA stands for Rated Load Amps. if you are operating at the rating conditions then yes you can.
    When I am late for work, I usually make up for it by leaving early.

    IF you have the Rated Load Amps, don't you also have the equipment model number?
