Telescopic hydraulic cylinders are used when an application, such as raising a dump body, requires a compact retracted dimension, but needs a longer stroke.
There are two main types of telescopic cylinders – single-acting and double-acting. Single-acting cylinders are extended in a single direction by hydraulic force but rely on gravity or an opposing force or weight for retraction.
Single-acting telescopic cylinders are commonly found on dump truck and dump trailer bodies, where the contents in the bed need to be emptied. After dumping the material by lifting the bed to the proper elevation, gravity collapses the cylinder back into a horizontal position.
Double-acting cylinders use hydraulic force in both directions – for extension and retraction – making this a more complex design. They are well-suited to garbage trucks, where gravity or external force cannot retract the cylinder.
Common mounting styles for telescopic cylinders are pin, trunnion and cross-tube.
