Enter the maximum injection pressure (psi) and the maximum hydraulic pressure (psi) into the Intensification Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Intensification Ratio. 

Intensification Ratio Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Intensification Ratio.

Ri = MIP / MHP


  • RI is the Intensification Ratio (psi:psi)
  • MIP is the maximum injection pressure (psi) 
  • MHP is the maximum hydraulic pressure (psi) 

To calculate the intensification ratio, divide the maximum injection pressure by the maximum hydraulic pressure.

How to Calculate Intensification Ratio?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Intensification Ratio.

  1. First, determine the maximum injection pressure (psi). 
  2. Next, determine the maximum hydraulic pressure (psi). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = Ri = MIP / MHP.
  4. Finally, calculate the Intensification Ratio.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

maximum injection pressure (psi) = 25000

maximum hydraulic pressure (psi) = 2000

Ri = MIP / MHP = ?
