To a very large degree, the main function of hydraulic circuits is to control the flow to one or several actuators as required by the application. There are, however, a variety of methods for controlling flow, some of which act indirectly by using pressure as the controlling parameter.
The circuits discussed in this chapter include the following:
7.2 PRESSURE AND FLOW
Hydraulic systems provide flow from the pump that is directed to one or more actuators (motors) at a pressure ...
