Hydraulic Cylinders & Industry Applications
Hydraulic cylinders typically consist of a cylindrical barrel, a piston, a piston rod, and mounting accessories. They are used to create mechanical force in a linear motion, i.e., they are used to lift something, push something or press something, in virtually every industry.
Hydraulic cylinders are ruggedly designed so they can be used in various applications and environments. In the agriculture industry, for example, they are ideal for harvesters, loaders and tractors. They also make it possible to operate bulldozers, excavators, trenchers and their attaching tools.
In the energy industry, they are used to operate the gate controls of hydroelectric stations. In shipbuilding, they can be used in steering mechanisms, transportation equipment, and hoists. Other industries that regularly use hydraulic cylinders include construction, automotive and aeronautical.
Factors to Consider When Selecting a Hydraulic Cylinder
When it comes to choosing a hydraulic cylinder, 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 generally designed for maximum operating pressure of 3,000 psi. Welded or mill-type cylinders are designed for higher pressures of 5,000 psi or more. They are preferred in more-rugged applications such as presses, steel mills, and offshore settings with harsh environments
- Force: A hydraulic cylinder depends on the force that is applied to one of its ends and transmitted to the other end through incompressible fluid oil. It 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: Mounting choices include flange, trunnion, threaded, clevis, and foot. 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 is important for selecting the appropriate materials, seals, and finishes. The material of the cylinder can be modified to meet specific environmental conditions. The 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.
