Episode 15 - Control of a cylinder with a large area ratio by a spool valve

If cylinders with a high area ratio (large piston area, small annular area) are controlled in a hydraulic system by spool valves, there are some important points to consider. Special attention must be paid to the spool geometry.

In the 15th episode of the HAWE Tech Podcast, our host Ralph has Keay Market Manager Dmitry as a guest. They talk about how spool-way-valves should be designed to ensure the system is stable and efficient.
