Welded Hydraulic Cylinders
Welded Hydraulic Cylinders are used for many heavy dutyapplications in manufacturing industries because they are designed for strengthand durability. Generally, these hydraulic cylindersrange in bore sizes from ½ inch to thirty inches, but some are even larger.While other cylinders are constructed by methods using tie rods, screws, aswell as threading and crimping to join cylinder end caps to the barrels, the barrelof a welded cylinder is a fully stressed, thick walled steel tube and the rearhead is welded to the barrel. Because of their specific design, weldedhydraulic cylinders have several advantages in the industry such as theirdurability at high pressures, their ability to be easily repaired if damagedoes occur, and their capacity for customization.
The strength that this welding and the barrel itselfprovides allows these cylinders to function at high levels of pressure withoutthe metal stretching or sagging on long strokes. There are also no issues offlexing or deformation from torsional and off center loads as the strong barrelto head connections prevent this. Another advantage that the welding providesis that the outside surface is smooth and uncluttered, which means there arefewer sharp corners that could catch on wires, hoses, and other machine parts.This smooth surface also means there are less places for dirt and moisture tosettle and cause corrosion.
Weldedhydraulic cylinders are also able to be customized very easily due to theirthick walled barrel. For example, extra attachments can be mounted anywherealong the body without trouble.
The distinctive strength that defines welded hydrauliccylinders makes them ideal for a wide range of industrial applications. Theycan function without failure in pressures up to and surpassing 5000 psi. Thebarrels of welded hydraulic cylinders are thick enough that they can withstandexternal damage if it does occur. They can be hone or burnished a number oftimes without the structural integrity of the whole unit being compromised.Because of this durability and strength, welded hydraulic cylinders are oftenused in mobile construction equipment, heavy industry, military hardware, andmany more harsh and demanding environments.
