HP needed to drive hydraulic pump




Electric Motor Horsepower (HP) required to drive a given hydraulic pump

Use this equation to help figure out what electric motor horsepower (HP) is required to drive a hydraulic pump. SImply take the gallons per minute (GPM) multiplied by the pump pressure PSI then divide that number by the result of 1,714 times efficiency (we used 85% effiencey in this case). 


Or just use the online calculator and let us do the hard work!


* PSI: Sudenga generally uses 2000





Not sure what your gallons per minute (GPM) are? 

Here are several equations/calculators that you can use to find missing variables that you need.
