Post event notes:

1. Follow-up questions

Question: Can you please clarify the RPM question regarding pump efficiency?

Answer: The maximum piston pump speed depends on displacement. A 5cc pump can rev up to 6000rpm whereas a 1000cc pump has a max speed of 950rpm. The minimum speed depends on output pressure as efficiencies especially volumetric are high at low speeds. Generally you would not run a axial piston pump below 100rpm and an external gear pump below 500rpm.

Question: Is standby and differential pressures the same value?

Answer: The bias spring of the pump is on-top of the differential pressure of the pump. The bias spring is required to get the pump to swash on.
