Hydraulic Cylinder Operations, Parts, and Designs QLD

Hydraulic cylinders are devices used in engineering vehicles. They power motors by producing linear motion with pressurised hydraulic fuel. To help you understand how hydraulic cylinders function or to get a hydraulic cylinder repair, contact H.E.M.E in Central Highlands. 


The Different Parts and Operations of Hydraulic Cylinders

Hydraulic cylinders are made up of several different parts. The primary parts include the cylinder barrel, piston and piston rod. 


The cylinder barrel contains the piston and piston rod, allowing them to move back and forth to create motion. The piston rod comes in and out of the cylinder. The piston itself contains seals and sliding rings and is responsible for dividing the cylinder into the rod and cap ends. With hydraulic pressure applied, motion is achieved. The piston rod can then be used to attach the cylinder to another device.


Hydraulic Cylinder Design

There are two common styles for hydraulic cylinder design. The first one is popular in factories and is known as the tie rod cylinder. It makes use of strengthened steel rods to connect the end caps to cylinder barrels. The second type is the welded body cylinder. The barrel and end caps are welded together, and the ports are welded to the cylinder. This design is perfect for heavy machinery like construction equipment as it can bear more weight.
