Hydraulic Open-Center System

In this system, a control-valve spool must be open in the center to allow pump flow to pass through the valve and return to the reservoir. Figure 2-3, shows this system in the neutral position. To operate several functions simultaneously, … Continue reading

Gear-Type Hydraulic Flow Divider

The gear-type flow divider functions like two gear motors with their shafts rigidly attached. We will consider first the case in which both motors have the same displacement. Since their shafts are attached, they both have to turn at the … Continue reading

Orifice-Type Hydraulic Flow Divider

Theoretically, the orifice on both sides of the flow divider can be adjusted so that the ?P across the orifice plus the load ?P is equal on both sides. Then, the flow from the pump will divide equally, and both … Continue reading
