Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all. I am new to this site and I would like to verify the following calculation. Is it correct to do it this way? Please advise. Thanks.

Hydraulic Press: 15 tons (Enerpac RC1510)
Gauge Max Pressure: 10000 psi
Actual Gauge Reading: 2500 psi

Actual pressure (tons) = (2500/10000) X 15 tons = 3.75 tons

Yes. From the datasheet, the effective area is 20.3 cm², which is 3.15 in². Multiply this area by the pressure (in psi) to get the force in lb.

10 000 psi X 3.15 in² = 31 500 lb (or 15.75 ton)
2 500 psi X 3.15 in² = 7 875 lb (or 3.9375 ton)

But I wouldn't rely on these numbers if precision is important.
