When it comes to choosing a hydraulic cylinder, you have a choice of double or single acting cylinders. Each one has their own unique benefits. As a leader in general engineering, we find that most commonly a single acting hydraulic cylinder is the best solution. It is the most versatile and is created with a simple design. Choosing the right type of cylinder can save you from needing to organize extensive hydraulic repairs.
In a single-acting hydraulic cylinder, hydraulic energy is converted into the fluid with its hydraulic force. This produces linear movement – that is, movement in one direction. When a single acting hydraulic cylinder is used, the force operates along only one side of the piston. Generally, the cylinder extends through hydraulic pressure and returns through either the process of gravity or by way of a spring mechanism.
Single acting hydraulic cylinders can be purchased with a built-in spring mechanism. The piston rod and the top of the cylinder are returned to the starting position in these devices. Gravity can produce the same result as a spring, as is often seen in manual handling and in hydraulic rams.
