1. Definition

The torque applied by a centrifugal pump at full load is called full load torque. It can be calculated from the pump power and its speed.

2. How to calculate a centrifual pump full load torque ?

The full load torque of a centrifugal pump can be calculated the following way :

T = 30.P / (π.n)

With :
T = Full load torque in kNm
P = Pump power at full load in kW
n = Pump speed at full load in rpm
