Tie Rod Mounted Cylinders


Tie Rod Mounted Cylinders

1.5" to 12" Bore

AIR AND MEDIUM-DUTY HYDRAULIC

Tie rod mounted cylinders are mounted from the same stress-proof steel tie rods used to compress the head and cap to the barrel. Tie rods can extend from the head, the cap or both. The MDX is a double rod cylinder containing two rods with a single piston.

Foot & Flush Mounted Cylinders


Foot & Flush Mounted Cylinders

1.5" to 12" Bore Series

AIR AND MEDIUM-DUTY HYDRAULIC

Foot & flush mounted cylinders are mounted to the bottom, side or end of the head or cap. Foot & flush mounts must operate at lower pressure on large bore or long stroke cylinders. Thrust keys can help improve the strength of the mount. Consult our experts for more detail.

Clevis & Pivot Mounted Cylinders


Clevis & Pivot Mounted Cylinders

1.5” to 12” Bore Series

AIR AND MEDIUM-DUTY HYDRAULIC

Clevis & pivot mounted cylinders are required when a load must move through an arc. Clevis & pivot cylinders may need to be de-rated or used with stop tubes for long stroke applications, especially without a guided load.

Flange Mounted Cylinders


Flange Mounted Cylinders

1.5” to 12” Bore Series

AIR AND MEDIUM-DUTY HYDRAULIC

Flange mounted cylinders are mounted via square or rectangular flanges attached to the head or cap. Flange mounts ensure the thrust force of the cylinder remains in the centre of the rod, as long as there is no rod misalignment.

Trunnion Mounted Cylinders


Trunnion Mounted Cylinders

1.5” to 12” Bore Series

AIR AND MEDIUM-DUTY HYDRAULIC

Trunnion mounted cylinders are heavy duty pivoting cylinders with pintles mounted to the head, cap or intermediate position. Although superior to clevis or pivot mounted cylinders, they may still require stop tubes in long stroke applications.
