How do you calculate hydraulic horsepower?
To find hydraulic horsepower, use the equation:
HP = (PSI X GPM) / 1714
PSI = Pressure in Pounds per Square Inch
GPM = Flow Rate in Gallons per Minute
Example: Calculate hydraulic horsepower when pressure is 2000psi and flow rate is 20GPM:
Horsepower = (2000 x 20) / 1714
Calculated out this gives a hydraulic horsepower of 23.34.
