We aim to answer any question you may have and we strive to make you life as a hydraulic engineer as simple as it can be. That's why we've put together these easy to use hydraulic calculators, saving you time when you're designing your hydraulic systems.

Just plug in the numbers you know, or have calculated, and we'll calculate the rest for you. Why not bookmark this page for an easy reference in the future.

  • Flow Rate (l/min)

  • Shaft Torque (Nm)

  • Shaft Power (kW)

  • Hydraulic Power (kW)

  • Force (N)

  • Velocity (m/s)

  • Area (cm2)

  • Reynolds Number

  • Velocity of Fluid in Pipe (m/s)

    Velocity of Fluid in Pipe (m/s)Pipes & Hoses Formulae

    Recommended fluid velocity ranges:

    Suction lines: 0.625m/s – 1.25m/s
    Pressure lines: 2.1m/s – 4.75m/s
    Return lines: 1.5m/s - 3m/s

    Based on oils having a maximum viscosity grade of 70 cSt at 38°C and operating between 18°C and 51°C.

    Note: For pipe runs greater than 10m the pipe size should be increased correspondingly. The intake line should never exceed 1m in length.

  • Voltage/Current/Resistance/Power


Every precaution has been made to make sure the above calculators and their outputs are accurate. However, we cannot guarantee the calculations you make are appropriate for your applications and online calculations could produce erroneous figures. If you do see figures that you are unsure about, please don't hesitate to contact us.
