What Does a Hydraulic Cylinder Do, and How Does It Work?
Hydraulic cylinders were first developed over 300 years ago, and are based on Pascal’s law of fluid pressure – when pressure is applied to a fluid, equal pressure will be exerted throughout that fluid in all directions. Hydraulic cylinder design has come a long way since then, but the same basic principle applies. Hydraulic cylinders are useful in any application where strong push or pull forces are needed.
Hydraulic cylinders are powerful tools which use the pressure of the liquid to perform mechanical work, and they enable a little applied force to go a very long way. They’re used in all sorts of industrial applications, from manufacturing, to production, to construction, to transportation, to mining, energy production, and even offshore industries. There are single-acting hydraulic cylinders, double-acting hydraulic cylinders, telescopic cylinders, piggyback cylinders, plunger cylinders, and jack cylinders, among others.
What Can Lead to Hydraulic Cylinder Failure?
Most modern hydraulic cylinder tubes, rods, pistons, and other components are made with carbon steel, stainless steel, chrome, and resilient coatings that are all designed to last a long time. But even so, the stresses of high pressure and high demands can still take their toll on any hydraulic cylinder assembly over time. Here are some common sources of hydraulic cylinder failure we’ve seen at AES:
Fluid contamination is perhaps the most frequent cause of hydraulic cylinder problems. If particulates infiltrate the fluid, the cylinder itself can become scratched and prematurely worn. Contaminated fluid will also serve to degrade the cylinder’s seals and fittings, as well.
Damaged seals are another common issue with hydraulic cylinders. Seals can be degraded by contaminated fluid, as well as by abusive operation of the hydraulic pump assembly itself. Once seals become compromised, they lose their ability to maintain the correct cylinder pressure, which can eventually result in significant damage.
Improper cylinder installation
Sometimes problems with a hydraulic cylinder can develop as a result of improper installation in the first place. Unintentional perpendicular forces and side loading can put unnecessary strain on all of the cylinder’s components, resulting in premature cylinder failure.
The piston is a crucial element of the cylinder assembly, and if the piston becomes damaged, that can result in cylinder failure. Pistons experience wear and tear over time, but their wear can be accelerated by fluid contamination or sideloading issues.
Too much or too little pressure
Excessive internal pressure puts too much stress on hydraulic cylinders and pumps, leading to faster wear and premature failure. Too little pressure can result in problems as well. It’s very important to maintain correct internal pressure in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
