Hydraulic Pump Horsepower Calculator

Find the input horsepower required for a hydraulic pump with this
Hydraulic Pump Horsepower Calculator.

Required Flow Rate: in GPM
Max System Pressure Required: in psi

Fill in required flow and pressure from the pump to determine pump
input horsepower required. (This calculator does not account for
effieciency loss)

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)
