How do you convert horsepower to PSI?
Herein, how do you calculate horsepower from flow and pressure?
For every 1 hp of drive, the equivalent of 1 gpm @ 1500 psi can be produced.
|Basic Fluid Power Formulas / Hydraulics / Pneumatics|
|Variable||Word Formula w/ Units||Simplified Formula|
|Cylinder Speed - v||(Feet / sec.) = (231 x Flow Rate (gpm)) / (12 x 60 x Area)||v = (0.3208 x gpm) / A|
Secondly, how much horsepower do you need to run a hydraulic pump? 1 HP is required for each 1 GPM at 1500 PSI or any multiple of 1500 such as 3 GPM at 500 PSI, 2 GPM at 750 PSI, 1/2 GPM at 3000 PSI, etc. Another handy rule-of-thumb is that it takes about 5% of the pump maximum rated HP to drive the pump when unloaded and pressure is very low.
Correspondingly, how much HP will 5 psi add?
air pressure is 14.7 psi. 5 lb boost makes that 19.7, a 34% increase. BEst case scenario is that you would gain 34% horsepower.
How do you calculate PSI?
Question: - “How do you find pounds per square inch (psi)?” Divide the pounds of perpendicular force by the square inches of area on which it is acting to get the pressure or stress in pounds per square inch.
