This drives down power consumption, while the uniform piston speed virtually eliminates pulsation in the flow of material, regardless of the pump's charge pressure.
The flow rates in the reservoir and the slit both increase as the piston speed increases and then decay shortly after the re-entrant area.
The combination of a closed hood with a cooling air inlet together with a surprisingly low piston speed of 3m/sec and optimised air flow over the cylinder keeps vibration levels to a minimum and the temperature of components to a very low level.
Optimization has shown that several kN's of reacting force can be reached for a shock-absorber having dimensions similar to conventional design at a piston speed of 0.
