BHP

BHP. (Brake horsepower) B001

The brake horsepower is the amount of horsepower being consumed by the pump. It is not the horsepower of the driver.

The horsepower can be measured by:

  • A calibrated motor
  • A transmission dynamometer
  • A torsion dynamometer or “pony brake”.

The Hydraulic Institute Standards are used as the basis for these measurements.
