Cracking pressure is that pressure in which you first get an indication of flow. Re-seal typically requires back pressure in order to re-seal properly.
Did you know that flow capacity is a matter of pressure drop? Pressure drop in turn is influenced by factors including the viscosity of the fluid, the temperature or pressure that’s applied, and the length and characteristics of your tubing or hose.
