 Pressure (psi) : Specific Gravity : Result :
• It is a specific type of pressure used in pump systems.
• It is a measurement of the height difference between the fluid being move and the discharge point.
• For example, let’s say you have a well of water that is 2 metres underground, and you have a tap and pipe system half a metre above ground.
• In fluid mechanics, it is the height of a liquid column that corresponds to a particular pressure exerted by the liquid column on the base of its container.
• It may also be known as static pressure head or simply static head (but not).
• Head is the maximum height that a pump can move fluid against gravity.
• The pump head or discharge head of a water pump is a measure of the power of a pump.
• The greater the pump head, the greater the pressure that the pump can generate.
##### Uses :
• Another reason that head is used, is that as long as the liquid that is being pumped has a similar viscosity to water, the head will be identical for different liquids.
• This may or may not be the case when using pressure to define a pump’s characteristics.
• Water Pressure is the force that is needed to make water move from one place to another, or can also refer to the force the water exerts once released from a pipe or faucet.
• Typically, pressure pumps boost water pressure, and can also, improve flow rate.
##### Formula :
• The formula for the calculation is given below.
• Pressure Head = (Pressure * 2.31) / Specific Gravity.
• Beside the formula this calculator works.
##### How to Calculate ?
• First, Enter the Pressure. Then,
• Second, Enter the Specific Gravity. Then,
• Click “Calculate” to get the result and then if you want to clear values Click “Reset” in addition to clear the values.
• Finally, follow these steps to get the result.
