I have a hydraulic piston that rotates a gear and need to figure out what the horsepower rating to change to electric motor. The piston operates at 1000psi to move gear.

You can use the standard formula for Power for your mechanism which states that:Power(watts)=(Pull(N)xSpeed(m/min))/60

What is the cylinder Bore Diameter?

How Fast does it extend in Inches Per Minute?

GPM= Gallons Per Inch (GPI) X Inches Per Minute (IPM) piston speed.

Gallons Per Inch = Bore Area divided by 231

HP= GPM X PSI X .000583
