Hydraulics calculator – calculate hydraulicsThe use of liquids to transmit force and energy.
Measurements and units used
|Geometr. displacement volumeThe volume of liquid in cm³ in a pump or motor displaced by the upward stroke or other cycle during a rotation of the drive shaft. per rotation||Vg||cm3|
|Total efficiency||ηt||Standard value ca. 0,85|
|Mechanical hydraulicThe use of liquids to transmit force and energy. efficiency||ηmh||Standard value ca. 0,85|
|Volume flow rate||qv||L/min|
|Volumetric efficiency||ηv||Standard value ca. 0,9|
|Gear pump diameter||D||cm|
|Gear pump length||L||cm|
|Gear pump gear width||W||cm|
qv = volume flow rate in in L/min
Vg = geometric displacement volume cm³/U
n = rotation speed in min-1
T = torque in Nm
∆p = differential pressure in bar
P = power in kW
Calculate gear pump conveyed volume
D = Gear pump diameter in cm
L = Length of bore in pump casing in cm
W = Gear pump width in cm
Conveyed volume calculation for a gear pumpThe oil volume enclosed in the gap between teeth is conveyed from the intake to the discharge side of the pump by the turning of the gear, displaced to the contact point of the wheel and forced into the pressure connection. (very accurate approximation)
Calculate hydraulics quickly...
HK Hydraulik GmbH offers all professionals and interested parties ready-made calculators for the most important hydraulic calculations.
Until now, to calculate the Volume flow rate or conveyed volume of a gear pump, technicians had to look up the formulas, pick up a calculator, enter the calculation according to the formula, and recalculate it again to check as a precaution. This could take a whole 15 minutes.
Now you just have to enter the values you know / have calculated / measured into the relevant calculator module, and you get your result straight away.
Please note: when we suggest standard values, this gives you a very close approximation that is good enough for general use. You can of course also enter the actual values instead of the standard values.
