How to Measure a Hydraulic Cylinder – An Guide from EVER-POWER

Take a tour of our VR factory and learn about hydraulic cylinders from EVER-POWER.

What is a Hydraulic Cylinder?

A hydraulic cylinder is a mechanical actuator used to provide unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke. It has many applications, such as in construction and manufacturing machinery, as well as in civil engineering and other heavy equipment. Hydraulic cylinders are typically constructed of a steel tube, rod and piston, and are filled with hydraulic fluid.

Classifications of Hydraulic Cylinders

Hydraulic cylinders are typically classified according to the type of actuation they provide. There are two main types of hydraulic cylinders: single-acting and double-acting. Single-acting cylinders use pressure to move the piston in one direction, while double-acting cylinders use pressure in both directions to move the piston.

Advantages of Hydraulic Cylinders

  • High force output
  • Smooth operation
  • Low maintenance
  • Highly reliable
  • Easy to install and repair

How to Measure a Hydraulic Cylinder

Measuring a hydraulic cylinder is a simple process and can be done with a few basic tools. To accurately measure a hydraulic cylinder, you will need a ruler, calipers, and a micrometer. First, measure the stroke of the cylinder by using the ruler to measure the distance between the rod and the piston. Then, measure the diameter of the rod and the piston using the calipers or the micrometer. Finally, measure the overall length of the cylinder using the ruler.

How to Choose the Right Hydraulic Oil and Oil Seal?

Choosing the right hydraulic oil and oil seal is essential for the optimal functioning of the cylinder. The selection of hydraulic oil and oil seal should be based on the application and the environment in which it will be used. The viscosity of the oil should be appropriate for the type and size of the cylinder and the temperature range in which it will be used. Additionally, the oil seal should be matched to the cylinder in order to ensure a tight seal and prevent leakage.

How to Replace a Hydraulic Cylinder?

Replacing a hydraulic cylinder is a straightforward process that involves a few simple steps. First, disconnect the hydraulic lines and remove the old cylinder. Then, install the new cylinder and reconnect the hydraulic lines. Finally, check for any leaks and test the cylinder to ensure it is functioning properly.

How to Choose a Suitable Power Unit?

Choosing a suitable power unit for a hydraulic cylinder depends on the type of application and the size of the cylinder. The power unit should be able to supply the necessary pressure and flow to the cylinder in order to ensure optimal performance. Additionally, the power unit should be compatible with the type of hydraulic oil used in the cylinder.
