Most of us have heard or are using hydraulic cylinder in our home or in
our industry but I am sure that all of us are not aware about its proper
What exactly does hydraulic mean? How it works? Let’s dive in it and find out the real meaning. Hydraulic cylinder is an actuation method that makes use of a under pressure hydraulic fluid called hydraulic pump. This device is used for manufacturing linear motion and force in solicitations that transfer power. In other words, a hydraulic cylinder transforms the energy kept in the hydraulic fluid into a power used to transfer the cylinder in a linear direction.
The hydraulic weight in these cylinders comes in the form of hydraulic fuels that are stored as pressurized in these cylinders. The energy kept in these oils is then transformed into motion. In a wide-ranging hydraulic system, a hydraulic motor comprises of one or more hydraulic cylinders. A pump then is used to regulate the flow of the oil in the hydraulic system. It is the special part of the generator being used in the hydraulic system. The hydraulic cylinders then start the pressure of the oil that cannot be more than mandatory by the load.
Thus, before you go out and purchase it make sure that is it really needed and if the answer is yes then also look for better Hydraulic cylinder design that which consume less space. For it different specifications need to be considered by you while you purchase a Hydraulic Cylinder.
The specifications that you need to considered and take care while purchasing a hydraulic cylinder is:
• Bore Diameter: It is the thickness of the cylinder bore that needs special attention.
• Maximum operating pressure: Ask for the maximum working pressure of the cylinder that is used to carry the load.
• Rod Diameter: It is the thickness of the piston and of the rod that is used in hydraulic cylinders.
Types of Cylinder: Different type of cylinders is available named as various hydraulic cylinder design such as tie-rod cylinder, welded cylinder and ram cylinder.
Stroke: The distance voyaged by a piston in a hydraulic cylinder is called stroke. The length of the stroke could be of several feet up to the fraction of an inch.
Tie-rod cylinder: This type of hydraulic cylinder use single or multiple tie-rods to give extra stability to the cylinder as the tie-rods are mostly connected on the exterior thickness (diameter) of the cylinder. It carries most of the load in this type of Hydraulic Rampump.
Similarly there are different types of cylinders available in various designs such as ram cylinders, welded cylinders and many more that are used according to one’s need.
