  • PSI coverted to Ft/Lbs

    Is there a formula to convert psi to ft/lbs?

    No, they are not compatible units.

    If you can give us more detail on what you are trying to do, we may be able to help, but it would be more of an analysis than a conversion.

      I'm going to use a hydraulic torque wrench that reads in psi but the torque I'm looking for is in ft-lbs.

        You would have to set the hydraulic pressure so that you are getting the desired tightening. - Do you have a normal torque wrench that does the job properly that you can standardise or compare the hydraulic wrench against?

          I've not put that very well, hope you know what it means.

            If im using a torquing machine which has the capacity of 10,000 psi or 700 bar
            how much is the equivalent in ft-lbs or newton-meter.

              how many pounds(lbs) is 19,000 p.s.i.?

                It depends on the area the pressure acts on.

                  on water pressure, I need to try to figure out how to know how much tongue i am getting as a ft lbs measurement if possible instead of the psi reading. I am running at 15,000 psi in a sealed system running 1/2" id pipe and my pump is running at 2000 rpm. is there a way to figure this, i'm at a loss trying to figure it. thanks, Daniel

                      (pounds per square inch - foot pounds)

                      1 foot = 12 inches

                      1 foot squared = 144 inches squared

                      15'000 psi * 0.5 inches = 30'000 psi

                      30'000 psi /144 inches to create foot squared = 208.333333 ft lbs

                        Try: (hyd. Psi) x (wrench length in feet) x 9 = ft. Lbs.

                          if I have 5250 ft/lbs @ 4500 psi of hydraulic pressure
                          How many ft/lbs would i have @ 3500 psi?

                            I"m trying to see if my 125 psi compressor will have enough to make a torque of 80 ft lbs.

                              That will depend on the characteristics of the air tool used and its air requirements to reach its rated output.
