How to Select a Hydraulic Cylinder
Hydraulic cylinders consist of a cylindrical barrel, a piston, a piston rod, and mounting accessories. They create mechanical force in a linear motion, i.e., they are used to lift something, push something, or press something, in virtually every industry.
When it comes to choosing the right cylinder for your application, consider where and how you will use it.
- Type of Cylinder: The most common cylinder types are tie-rod cylinders and welded (or mill-type) cylinders. Tie-rod cylinders are typically designed for maximum operating pressure of 3,000 psi. Their advantages include ease of assembly and maintenance, but they are not generally as strong as welded cylinders. Welded cylinders are designed for higher pressures of 5,000 psi or more and are preferred in more-rugged applications such as presses, steel mills, and offshore settings in harsh environments.
- Force: A hydraulic cylinder relies upon the force that is applied to one of its ends and transmitted to the other end through incompressible fluid oil. The force multiplies during the transmission process, which enables it to move a workload. Force is determined based on the bore diameter (the inner diameter measurement of the cylinder bore) and operating pressure.
- Mounting style: Cylinder mounting choices include centerline lug, flange, extended tie-rod, and pivot. Pivot mounted cylinders include mounts like clevis and trunnion and are used when a load has to be moved through an arc. Straight line mounted cylinders include rear or front head flange and foot mounts and are used when the load has to be moved in a linear direction.
- Environment: Knowing where the cylinder is going to be used will help you select the appropriate materials, seals, and finishes. The cylinder material can be modified to meet specific environmental conditions. Cylinder seals can be changed based on high or low temperatures or special operating fluids. Cylinder finishes can include special plating or paint finishes to meet a variety of indoor and outdoor applications.
