# Hydraulic Pump Horsepower Calculator

Find the input horsepower required for a hydraulic pump with this

Hydraulic Pump Horsepower Calculator.

## 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)
