About Gorilla Spares
At Gorilla Spares, we don’t manufacture parts. We serve instead as a marketplace, connecting smaller manufacturers with customers. These manufacturers not only make hydraulic components, but also electronic, robotic and electrical parts. Our customers include some of the leading companies in the agricultural and aerospace industries, as well as many other industries.
The companies whose parts we sell on our site are referred to as vendor partners. We carefully research and audit every prospective vendor partner before we accept them. As a result, you can always purchase your components from us with total confidence. The only way we’ll bring a vendor partner aboard is if they can prove to us they’re just as committed to quality and customer satisfaction as we are.
One example of a company we’re proud to call a vendor partner is Akaliko. This is one of the leaders in the manufacture of replacement components, such as cylinders, for hydraulic systems. You’ll find Akaliko equipment in machinery owned by some of the world’s leading construction and mining companies. They turn to Akaliko because they know they’ll receive parts that will be reliable even in the most demanding environments.
A Brief Look at Hydraulic Cylinders
Just about every piece of equipment that either lifts, pulls, extends, lowers or pushes uses hydraulics to perform those movements. Cylinders are key components of any hydraulic system. You’ll find them in cranes, oil and gas equipment, dump trucks, refuse trucks, and many, many other machines.
One of the more popular types of cylinder is a telescopic hydraulic cylinder. It gets its name from a telescope because it acts in much the same fashion. Telescopic cylinders consist of different sizes of tubes, or stages, that nest inside of each other. They are designed to provide a great deal of lifting force within a confined area, making them perfect for applications such as dump trucks.
Once the cylinder starts to move, the largest stage moves first. Once that stage fully extends, the next smallest stage begins to extend, then the next, and so on. Then, when the cylinder needs to retract, the stages move in the opposite manner. The smallest one retracts, followed by the others.
There are two main types of telescopic cylinder. One is known as a single-acting cylinder. It extends through hydraulics, and then retracts through weight or gravity. A double-acting cylinder, on the other hand, uses hydraulics to both extend and retract.
