Cylinder Types (114 KB)


 Standard Double-Acting Cylinder
Standard Double-Acting Cylinder Power stroke is in both directions and is used in the majority of applications.

 Single-Acting Cylinder
Single-Acting Cylinder When thrust is needed in only direction, a single-acting cylinder may be used. The inactive end is vented into the atmosphere through a breather filter for pneumatic applications, or vented to a resevoir below the oil level in hydraulic applications.

 Double Rod Cylinder
Double Rod Cylinder Used when equal displacement is needed on both sides of the piston, or when it is mechanically advantageous to couple a load to each end. The extra end can be used to mount cams for operating limit switches, etc.

 Spring Return, Single-Acting Cylinder
Spring Return, Single-Acting Cylinder Usually limited to very small, short stroke cylinders used for holding and damping. The length needed to contain the return spring makes them undersirable when a long stroke is needed.

 Ram Type, Single-Acting Cylinder
Ram Type, Single-Acting Cylinder Containing only one fluid chamber; this type of cylinder is usually mounted vertically. The weight of the load retracts the cylinder. They are sometimes known as "displacement cylinders", and are practical for long strokes.

 Telescoping Cylinder
Telescoping Cylinder Available with up to 4 or 5 sleeves; collapsed length is shorter than standard cylinders. Available either as single or double-acting, they are relatively expensive compared to standard cylinders.

 Tandem Cylinder
Tandem Cylinder

A tandem cylinder is made up of two cylinders mounted in line with pistons connected by a common piston rod and rod seals installed between the cylinders to permit double acting operation of each. Tandem cylinders allow increased output force when mounting width or height are restricted.


 Duplex Cylinder
Tandem Cylinder A duplex cylinder is made up of two cylinders mounted in line with pistons not connected and with rod seals installed between the cylinders to permit double acting operation of each. Cylinders may be mounted with piston rod to piston (as shown) or back to back, and are generally used to provide three position operation.
