  • Hydraulic Innovation for Tower Luffing Cranes

    Luffing, not to be confused with the act of using a luffa sponge in the shower, refers to a type of industrial crane. It is also a term used by sailors to refer to the behavior of a sail when it's turned into the wind. Supposedly it refers to the noise the sail makes. I have no hints as to the etymology of luffing when referring to cranes, but luffing refers to the action of a crane moving a jib up and down. These cranes are used in construction and...

  • My Hydrolic workout

    I first learned about hydraulics not on a construction site but in a gym. I remember the first time I heard an argument touting dead weights as superior to hydraulic weights. Which was better? Did it all depend on personality, or was one more likely to work than the other? The first comparison placed dead weights on top. Because dead weights always weigh the same, they were seen as superior to a hydraulic system. If you're tired, you can't change the weight you're pulling unless you switch it out. Hydraulic...

  • Series BCK2 Stretch Rod Cylinder

    PHD is pleased to release the Series BCK2 Stretch Rod Cylinder for Blow Molding. The new Series BCK2 Cylinder expands our proven series of Krones® solutions.   Series BCK2 Stretch Rod Cylinders are available with a cylinder retract locking device for machine maintenance. Many newer Krones machines utilize a retract locking cylinder in the event of machine E-stop. This locking function is a benefit for machines that have automatic mold change capability, and provides convenience during manual rotation of the machine during service.   The Series BCK2 builds on the...

Industry Information

Hydrolic Cylinders

Hydrolic, or hydraulic cylinders, are devices used to convert pressurized fluid into mechanical power in the form of linear force or movement. A simple device, hydraulic cylinders are usually made up of two main parts: an outer cylinder barrel containing hydraulic fluid, and a hydraulic piston which is connected to a rod which moves it up and down inside the barrel. The distance that a piston travels with the cylinder until it is fully extended is known as its stroke. The length of a stroke is often used to classify the cylinder and this length can range widely from less than an inch to several feet in length in relation to the power required.

Hydraulic cylinders are used commonly in automobiles in the transmission, brakes, steering, in aviation, industrial and construction machinery for example as excavators. Hydraulic cylinders are typically one of two types: tie-rod cylinders or welded cylinders. Both systems are similar in that the outer cylinder barrel is typically made of steel or aluminum, and the maximum pressure that the cylinder can sustain is directly related to the maximum output of the hydraulic cylinder. They can be single-action or double-acting designs depending on whether a cylinder’s piston produces pressurized motion in one direction or in both directions. The piston is located inside the barrel housing and is commonly chrome-plated to prevent any deterioration due to wear and tear or corrosion.

Most often, the hydraulic fluid used in a cylinder is an oil. This will need to be periodically replaced or refilled as it is affected slowly by the process of pumping the piston. Other hydraulic systems use water as the motion fluid which is less expensive than hydraulic oil, and does not result in pollution, making water hydraulic cylinders an environmentally friendlier solution. There are a number of factors to consider regarding hydrolic cylinders such as the maximum power, the mounting and configuration setup of the machine itself in relation to elements to be worked on, the materials used in the cylinders and the stroke itself. As the motion produced by the pressure inside hydraulic cylinders is linear, the machine components should not be placed under any indirect tension or strength as it may cause damage to the parts which would result in loss of pressure, and therefore loss of power. To ensure the best results from the machine, the cylinders should only be used for pushing and pulling. Hydraulic cylinders range in price according to their capabilities but are an investment at any size. However, due to the potential power output of even a small hydraulic system, the paybacks are often satisfactory.
