Pressure in a Hydraulic Circuit

Here’s another Flint Hydraulics Tech Tip: Pressure at the upstream side of parallel flow paths will rise only as high as necessary for all the flow to return to tank. In the illustration, pressure in the entire circuit will rise only high enough to force the fluid through Path A, because that is the path of least resistance.
