## Cylinders conduits flow rate and velocity

These calculations can help you to figure-out conduits’ (hoses, pipes or tubes) ID sizes, piston speed, flow velocity and cylinder’s force.

Calculations Notes:

- The recommended flow velocity in conduits you can find at the article Recommended flow velocity.
- The assumption: if you use more than 1 cylinder in calculations, all cylinders have the same parameters (bore/rod diameters, stroke and friction)
- The assumption: Pressure and Return lines conduits (flow source – flow divider and flow divider – tank) have the same ID size.
- The assumption: the conduits between flow divider and cylinders have the same ID size.
