Plunger Pump Rod Load Calculator
This reciprocating pump rod load calculator is meant to quickly calculate the rod load of a plunger pump. By multiplying the pressure in the fluid chamber by the square area of the plunger, we can accurately calculate how much force is pushing back on the crankshaft of the pump. Enter data into any 2 of the following 3 fields and press calculate. Note that this plunger pump rod load calculator is only for single acting plunger pumps, and not for double acting pumps.
