    Hydraulic Formulas

    Need a hydraulic formula? We have listed the most commonly used formulas below, along with a few handy hydraulic conversions.

    Formulas

    Force
    N = (Pressure (Bar) x Area (mm²))/10

    Torque
    Nm = (Pressure (Bar) x Displacement (cc/rec))/20π

    Velocity of Fluid in Pipe
    m/sec = (Flow rate (LPM) x 21.22)/D²
    * where D = internal pipe diameter in mm

    Flow
    LPM = (Fluid Velocity (m/sec) x Area (mm²) x 60)/1,000

    Power
    kW = (Flow (LPM) x Pressure (Bar))/600
    kW = (2π x Torque (NM) x Speed (RMP))/60,000

    Conversions

    1 PSI = 51.7mm Hg (Mercury)
    1 ATM = 1 Bar = 14.7 PSI
    10 Bar = 1 MPa
