Blown To Bits

What do you think would happen if you pressurized a 3,000 PSI rated hydraulic cylinder to over 6,000 PSI?

This 6-1/2 minute video demonstrates pressure intensification in a double-acting cylinder and why the possibility of it occurring is one of the reasons we typically use meter-in rather than meter-out flow control when limiting the extension speed of a single-rod cylinder.
