Rephasing Hydraulic Cylinders

Rephasing hydraulic cylinders are two or more cylinders plumbed in series or parallel, with the bores and rods sized such that all rods extend and/or retract equally when flow is directed to the first, or last, cylinder within the hydraulic system.In “parallel” applications, the bore and rod sizes are always the same, and the hydraulic cylinders are always used in pairs.

In “series” applications, the bore and rod sizes are always different, and two or more hydraulic cylinders may be used. In these applications, the bores and rods are sized such that all rods extend or retract equally when flow is applied to the first or last cylinder within the system. This hydraulic synchronization of rod positions eliminates the need for a flow divider in the hydraulic system, or any type of mechanical connection between the cylinder rods to achieve synchronization.

CatalogueOur catalogue shows a selection of the standard hydraulic cylinders / hydraulic rams that we regularly supply, but if you are looking for a bespoke hydraulic cylinder then we can take care of that too!
