Hydraulic Power Unit Plans – Design
If you are interested in building your own hydraulic power unit we have all the parts sourced for you listed below that we recommend with our professionally designed plans.
This home built power unit can be used to power several different hydraulic driven equipment such as our homemade hydraulic press, hydraulic punch, hydraulic rollers, pipe and tube benders among other pieces of equipment.
This unit has a 1 HP electric Motor Single Phase, 1725 RPM (56 NEMA frame) driving a Pump that has .065 Cubic Inch Displacement Per Revolution which will give approx. 1/2 GPM output with 3,000 PSI capacity.
To Calculate that you take .065 x 1725 = 112.12 Cubic Inch of Oil. (One Gallon is 231 cubic inches) so that means divide 231 by 112 = .48 GPM actual.
The rule of thumb is that a 1 HP Electric motor (1,725 RPM) can pump 1 Gallon Per Minute @ 1,500 PSI
So if you need 3,000 PSI you have to Double the HP or cut the GPM in half. we cut the output GPM in half.
All of the following are the parts you will need along with our professionally designed plans to build your own hydraulic unit.
