Hydraulic Cylinder Design

Hydraulic cylinders are a critical component of any system where linear pressure is necessary. Considered reliable and efficient workhorses, they are used in a wide range of industrial applications, including in manufacturing, shipbuilding, construction, energy production and distribution, aerospace and car production.

Choosing The Right Cylinder For Your Needs

Choosing the right hydraulic cylinder is essential. If all the parts of your hydraulic system aren’t working in harmony, you can end up with a system that is inefficient and runs up maintenance costs faster than you can blink. The result is a catastrophic failure that will cost you a fortune to repair, while the downtime racks up losses in income.

While we keep an extensive range of cylinders in stock, allowing you to order using a standardised part number, we’ve seen many manufacturers make mistakes and order the wrong cylinder. The most common issues we’ve seen include ordering the wrong size cylinder, or the wrong mountings.

Ordering the wrong size cylinder is often the result of misjudging the speed, strength and capability required of the cylinder. This leads to cylinders that operate at the wrong speed or aren’t able to do the work at all.

In terms of erroneous mountings, we’ve seen this occur mostly in cases where components were ordered individually. This is understandable as many companies are used to working with parts suppliers rather than hydraulics specialists.

At Ranger Caradoc, we specialise in integrated hydraulics systems, so when you get in touch with us, we will approach your needs in the same way. In other words, we can look at your system as a whole and advise you on the best option, ensuring costly mistakes are avoided.
