Hydraulic cylinders operate under the principle that an increase in pressure exerted on anything increases force as the area of the object increases. The result is that a larger cylinder and piston can produce more energy for more significant lifting or pushing demands.
A hydraulic cylinder uses pressurized hydraulic fluid, typically oil, to convert pressure into movement. By controlling the amount of hydraulic fluid in the chambers, the operator can control the mechanism's movement.
While a hydraulic cylinder is basically a steel tube and rod, several components hold it together and make it so incredibly powerful.
A hydraulic cylinder consists of a cylindrical barrel, with a piston attached to a hydraulic cylinder rod, which moves the piston back and forth through the cylinder. One end of the barrel is capped, and the other end contains the cylinder head or gland, where the hydraulic cylinder rod extends out of the chamber.
The piston has hydraulic cylinder seals and gaskets, which prevent hydraulic fluid from leaking and help keep dirt and other contaminants from entering the cylinders. Additionally, hydraulic cylinder seals prevent pressurized fluid from leaving the chamber and reducing the mechanism's effectiveness.
Despite the power and functionality of hydraulic cylinders, they are sometimes forgotten and often overlooked. Like any component with moving parts that undergoes severe stress, hydraulic cylinders require regular maintenance to operate as needed and meet the demands of the required application. Several common problems can contribute to the breakdown and cause you to require hydraulic cylinder repair.
Hydraulic cylinders are a standard component found in various machines, including excavators, bulldozers, trucks, tractors, farm machinery, and more. While the engine and drivetrain components provide the power to move the vehicle, hydraulic cylinders are designed to move individual parts of the machine. For instance, a hydraulic cylinder usually controls the motion when a bucket tilts, a blade lifts, or a boom extends.
At their most basic, hydraulic cylinders convert pressurized hydraulic fluid into linear movement. Generally, a hydraulic cylinder is used to push or pull a component. A close look at a piece of heavy machinery will typically reveal many hydraulic cylinders wherever a member is required to extend or contract.
While hydraulic cylinders are relatively simple in design, their ability to turn a relatively small amount of pressurized fluid into an extremely high force makes them indispensable. As a result, hydraulic cylinders are the workhorse that allows heavy machinery to perform its job as intended.
When one of your hydraulic cylinders fails, it can be critical to your productivity, and you need it repaired correctly and quickly so you can get back to work. While hydraulic cylinder repair is a relatively straightforward task, it takes skill and experience to do it right.
