Frequently used in many water, gas and oil drilling applications, these hydraulic cylinders can be designed as single- or double-acting. Other applications include material handling equipment, waste/recycling compaction and special jack cylinders with a short retracted length but a long stroke.
Single Acting and Double Acting
Single-acting and double-acting cylinders represent two fundamentally different designs. Single Acting cylinder only extends by pressure from a pump and then retracts by the weight of the load or other mechanical force. A double-acting cylinder uses hydraulic power to extend and retract. Also available with Linear transducers for position feedback.
GBI provides OEMs with quality cylinder seal kits for a variety of different industries.
