# How to Convert PPH to GPM

Save

Pounds per hour measures the flow of fluids in terms of mass, and it is useful for describing a process's total production rate. Gallons per minute measures the flow of fluids in terms of volume, so it can accurately describe the transport of a fluid through a pipe. If you know a fluid's density, you can convert its PPH to GPM by performing three simple calculations.

• Divide the flow rate in PPH by the fluid's density. For example, if 10,000 pounds flow each hour and the fluid has a density of 62 pounds per cubic foot, 10,000 / 62 = 161.3 cubic feet per hour.

• Divide the cubic feet per hour by 0.1337 to convert them to gallons per hour. For example, 161.3 / 0.1337 = 1,206.4 gallons per hour.

• Divide the gallons per hour by 60 to convert them to gallons per minute. For example, 1,206.4 / 60 = 20.1 gallons per minute.
