No, they are not compatible units.

If you can give us more detail on what you are trying to do, we may be able to help, but it would be more of an analysis than a conversion.

Thumbs up Re: PSI coverted to Ft/Lbs

I'm going to use a hydraulic torque wrench that reads in psi but the torque I'm looking for is in ft-lbs.

You would have to set the hydraulic pressure so that you are getting the desired tightening. - Do you have a normal torque wrench that does the job properly that you can standardise or compare the hydraulic wrench against?

If im using a torquing machine which has the capacity of 10,000 psi or 700 bar
how much is the equivalent in ft-lbs or newton-meter.

It depends on the area the pressure acts on.

Default Re: PSI coverted to Ft/Lbs

on water pressure, I need to try to figure out how to know how much tongue i am getting as a ft lbs measurement if possible instead of the psi reading. I am running at 15,000 psi in a sealed system running 1/2" id pipe and my pump is running at 2000 rpm. is there a way to figure this, i'm at a loss trying to figure it. thanks, Daniel
