So you’re searching for cylinders? Well, if you’re looking to source hydraulic cylinders, whether you’re talking standard or something really quite special, then the great news is that you’re in the right place. If you’re looking for general information on hydraulic cylinders and their role within a hydraulic system, then we can help there too. But if you’re looking for “cylinders” as part of your geometry studies then we’re probably not what you were hoping to find. Thanks for dropping in and reading this far though.
Back to hydraulic cylinders… Sometimes referred to as hydraulic rams, hydraulic cylinders get their power from (convert the energy within) pressurised hydraulic fluid to create linear motion and work. Cylinders should therefore only be used for pushing and pulling; no bending moments or side loads should be transmitted to the piston rod or the cylinder. You can find more information here on hydraulics for beginners and how hydraulic cylinders work.
Tie rod style cylinders and welded body hydraulic cylinders are both commonly used styles of cylinder construction. Other types of hydraulic cylinders could include: Telescopic hydraulic cylinders, plunger cylinders, differential hydraulic cylinders, re-phasing hydraulic cylinders and single or double-acting hydraulic cylinders.
Looking for a hydraulic cylinder designer or manufacturer? At Hydraulics Online, we offer one-off, custom-made hydraulic cylinders to match your specific application, requirements and operating parameters. There’s no minimum order quantity, so if you only need one that’s fine. You can use our Bespoke Hydraulic Cylinder design form to submit your enquiry details to us… or call us talk things through. We like talking.
We also offer a comprehensive hydraulic cylinder repair and refurbishment service too – recognising that this can often be quicker and cheaper than sourcing new equipment. Our service includes a free assessment where we will strip down your faulty hydraulic cylinder and fully diagnose the extent of repair work needed. Following our inspection we may conclude that a hydraulic cylinder repair is not viable, or that your repaired cylinder may be unreliable or prone to poor performance in future. If this is the case then we will always explain why and quote for a replacement.
If this is all sounding a bit too good to be true… it’s not. We’re not in the habit of making promises that we can’t keep and have plenty of case studies and testimonials throughout this website, where you can see what customers have to say about us in their own words…
But to give a quick example of the hydraulic cylinders we provide, an international refuse and waste management services company contacted the team looking for a number of 3-stage telescopic, double-acting hydraulic cylinders. One is pictured, right.
Another customer, a power transmission equipment manufacturer and wholesaler needed Hydraulics Online to provide them with a complete hydraulic system and hydraulic cylinder for a tipping hopper application.The technical team specified, designed and supplied a complete hydraulic system including hydraulic power pack and hydraulic actuator. The cylinders and mounts were made, taking into account the customer’s specification and the hydraulic system was delivered to them within budget and time constraints.
We think we’ve got all bases covered as far as hydraulic cylinders are concerned, even in ATEX and explosion-proof environments. But if there’s anything you think we’ve missed, or you need more information then don’t hesitate to pick up the phone or email our technical team for friendly advice and expertise. Go on… take the plunge with us!
