Basic knowledge about the cylinder

   cylinder is the actuator or "motor" side of the system. That is to say, choosing hydraulic motor for the goods are not as simple as people normally thought it is. It demands that company understand deeply their produce piston motor, hydraulic winch, gearbox, hydraulic steering unit, axial piston motor products and scale to get suitable ones. The "generator" side of the hydraulic system is the hydraulic winch brings in a fixed or regulated flow of oil to the bottom side of the cylinder, to move the piston rod upwards. 
      It also consists of a cylinder barrel, in which a piston connected to a piston rod moves back and forth. The barrel is closed on each end by the cylinder bottom and by the 
cylinder head where the piston rod comes out of the cylinder. And this cylinder transfers linear motion of the rod to some type of equipment such as a dump truck bed, bulldozer blade, airplane, elevator, and even the movement of some robots. 

      The principle used by a cylinder to operate machinery is simply a transmission of force applied by pressure onto a fluid that is incompressible. The fluid is a key part of the cylinder ability to transmit power from one point to another. It can only transmit power if the fluid is incompressible. In a hydraulic system, the hydraulic fluid is always pumped, or transmitted, through a pipe from the point at which it receives the force, or energy, to the point where the energy is transferred to another piece of equipment that is to be moved or operated. This pipe can be any size or length without reducing or varying the energy it transfers.



      In addition to the above, the piston is also very important. It has sliding rings and seals. The piston divides the inside of the cylinder in two chambers, the bottom chamber (cap end) and the piston rod side chamber (rod end). The hydraulic pressure acts on the piston to do linear work and motion. 
      The cylinder is probably one of the most efficient methods of producing power. Of course, it is a kind of cylinders. And it is usually called a linear hydraulic motor and is a mechanical actuator that is used to give a unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke. It is made up of seven parts, i.e. the cylinder barrel, cylinder bottom or cap, cylinder head, piston, piston rod , rod gland and other parts. 
      All in all, the cylinder is one of the key components of some equipment. Few of us know much about the cylinder although most of us may be familiar with equipment that is operated by hydraulics. From the above content, we can learn some basic knowledge about the cylinder.
