  • How to Vary Hydraulic Pump Flow to Get the Most Out of Your Prime Mover
    by David Saunders | June 6, 2017 In order to generate massive force, you must apply pressure to a large area. The trade-off is that the larger the area that is being acted on, the more flow (volume) it takes to get an actuator to move a given distance. If you want a cylinder to generate massive force and move quickly, you will need a massive prime mover. Hydraulics
