What is the difference between open center and closed center hydraulics?

Posted by Administrator on 12/18/2015 to Informational

In the valves neutral condition, meaning when the circuit is not doing any useful work:

Open Center - The pump oil gets dumped to the tank at tank pressure.

Closed Center - The pump, tank and work ports are blocked. Closed center systems typically have a variable displacement pump.
