How do you calculate the hydraulic horsepower of a pump?
To find the input horsepower requirement for a hydraulic pump,
use this hydraulic pump horsepower formula:
HP = (Flow x Pressure) / 1714
Flow = Gallons Per Minute
Pressure = Pounds per Square Inch
Example: The input horsepower required for a pump that needs to
provide 10 GPM at 2000 psi is:
HP= (10 x 2000) / 1714
Calculated out this gives an input horsepower requirement of
11.67 horsepower. (rounded to the nearest 100th)
