High pressure hydraulic cylinders, also known as hydraulic motors, are popular components within a hydraulic system. High pressure hydraulic cylinders are used where a strong push or pull force is required within a system. Hydraulic cylinders are essentially a linear actuator which generates a force.
Parts of a high pressure hydraulic cylinder:
CylinderCylinder rodPistonPiston RodSealsMounting method (such as a threaded end)
Things to consider when choosing a high pressure hydraulic cylinder:
Capacity - this is the force of the cylinder, given in tonnes.Stroke - the length that the piston rod can travel in and out, given in mm.Operating pressure - the maximum operating pressure is given in psi or bar.Single/Double acting - single-acting cylinders produce a force in one direction while double-acting cylinders produce a force in extending and retracting directions
Where are high pressure cylinders used?
These hydraulic cylinder are designed for applications with higher pressures. High pressure hydraulic cylinders can be found in systems which have bends or tilted pipes which require additional linear force.High pressure hydraulic cylinders are commonly used in construction machinery and manufacturing.
