Telescopic Hydraulic Cylinders – The Basics
A hydraulic system uses compressed fluids in order to move force from one point to another. Telescopic hydraulic cylinders are critical components of this type of system, of course, but there’s nothing particularly magical about them. They’re basically a set of metal tubes that work together in a manner similar to a telescope, with the smaller-diameter tubes fitting inside the larger ones.
But while they may be made following a relatively simple design, telescopic hydraulic cylinders are incredibly powerful, used in a wide range of heavy-duty machinery. These include transfer trailers, dump trucks and many, many others. Here’s a quick look at some of the parts that make up this type of cylinder.
- Piston – This is the area inside the cylinder that receives the force needed to lift or move an object, such as the body of a dump truck. The bore of the piston is simply its diameter. The larger the bore, the more force it experiences. The seal of the piston contains the hydraulic fluid. If the seal doesn’t work properly, the cylinder won’t be able to lift as much weight.
- Rod – Also known as the “shaft,” it travels through the head, or gland, of the cylinder. It connects the piston with the end of the cylinder. The farther out the rod extends, the more force is exerted on it. Cylinders placed under heavy loads need to have extremely strong rods. If they’re not strong enough, the cylinder will fail.
- Butt – This is the base of the cylinder, often referred to as the “cap.”
Maintaining Your Hydraulic Cylinders
Cylinders and all other hydraulic system components need to be maintained on a regular basis. Just like your car needs regular oil changes and inspections, your cylinders need the same thing. Look closely for any signs of wear, such as cracks or fissures. This will go a long way toward making sure you don’t have to deal with potentially costly downtime.
