Our current blog looks at Hydraulic Cylinders and acts as a guide to help you choose the correct type of cylinder for your hydraulic system. As system layouts and sizes vary greatly, it can be a bit of a trial and error process to get the correct measurements for fitment. Luckily some manufacturers, such as ourselves, offer a bespoke cylinder option which can be tailored to specific power units with additional options also available, if required.

The global rise in construction and infrastructure investment, as well as the trend towards increased mechanisation of agricultural processes will benefit the manufacturers and suppliers of hydraulic cylinders over the next decade. These worldwide trends are helping to drive the industry towards a value of $16.44 billion by 2025, according to research conducted by Global Market Insights Inc.

If you’re in a situation where you need to determine the integrity of a piston seal in a cylinder, then you will be required to intensify the pressure inside that cylinder. Those that are well experienced and have deep knowledge of such tasks, will find that it’s a fairly safe test to run, however, if you don’t then it can be very dangerous.

To ensure the smooth running of your fluid hydraulic power systems, it’s critical to schedule consistent maintenance of cylinders. Here are five hints on getting this right:Regular inspections. Check whether the rod has any pitting, corrosion or uneven wear. Uneven wear could signal an impending disaster for the entire hydraulic system. Corrosion may indicate too much moisture either in the fluid itself or ambient moisture. It could also speed up wear on seals. Pitting can also lead to sea...

As we have looked at before, a failure in hydraulic cylinders is quite often related to a seal failure. Although the price of a seal is not particularly high, domino effects can make this a very expensive occurrence. The financial costs of loss of production, engineer downtime and / or calling in engineers can soon add up. It’s for these reasons that it’s important to look at what is causing the failure of the seal first. The key issues behind seal failure are:Bad installation of seal. When th...

The Beginners Guide to Hydraulic Cylinder Uses By Industry If you’re new to the power of hydraulic cylinders, then read on. We’re going to look at how they are used. The magic of the hydraulic cylinder is its ability to produce unidirectional force from unidirectional stroke. This gives them the potential to be used in a number of industries, although construction is the premier one. Let’s explore how else the hydraulic cylinder is used as a valuable tool in industry:
