About Rpm to Flow Rate Calculator (Formula)
The RPM to Flow Rate Calculator is a tool used to calculate the flow rate of a pump based on its RPM (revolutions per minute) and pump displacement. The flow rate refers to the volume of fluid that the pump can deliver per unit of time, usually measured in gallons per minute (GPM).
The formula used to calculate the flow rate is:
Flow Rate (GPM) = (Pump RPM * Pump Displacement) / 231
In this formula, the pump RPM represents the rotational speed of the pump, indicating the number of revolutions it completes in one minute. The pump displacement represents the volume of fluid displaced by the pump in each revolution, typically given in cubic inches.
By multiplying the pump RPM by the pump displacement and dividing the result by 231, the calculator provides the flow rate in gallons per minute. This calculation enables users to determine the flow rate of a pump based on its operational speed and displacement, aiding in various applications such as hydraulic systems, fluid dynamics, and pump selection.
The RPM to Flow Rate Calculator simplifies the process of converting RPM to flow rate, providing a convenient and efficient tool for engineers, technicians, and individuals working with pumps or fluid systems.
