Hydraulic Cylinders provide a pushing force in one direction and are widely used to run manufacturing and construction equipment. The cylinder has components that include: the barrel, cap, head, piston, piston rod, seal gland, and seals.
All these parts are designed to collectively keep the pressure confined and transmit it through a chamber. Hydraulic Cylinders generate the motion and force with the help of hydraulic fluid. The fluid is responsible for extracting or retracting the cylinder. The seals prevent leakage of hydraulic oil.
Cylinder types depend on the equipment you operate with options the include
• Compact: they have a small body size designed for tight spaces
• Sensor-ready: utilize magnetic pistons that use proximity switches to indicate the piston position electronically
To keep the hydraulic cylinders running, you will need accessories such as:
• Contact bolts
• Spherical bearings
• Mounting blocks
• Clevis pins
• Rod ends and linkages
• Hydraulic valves
• Cylinder heads
• Oil seals
