A hydraulic cylinder is a common hydraulic component used to convert liquid pressure into mechanical energy to drive machinery to perform the motion. Hydraulic cylinders usually consist of pistons, cylinder barrels, sealing elements, and connections. The piston moves back and forth in the cylinder barrel, so as to realize the mechanical pushing, pulling, rising, lowering, rotating, and other movements. Hydraulic cylinders are widely used in various mechanical equipment, such as excavators, loaders, cranes, metallurgical equipment, agricultural machinery, construction machinery, etc. It can withstand high pressure, large output torque, smooth action, and easy operation.

Hydraulic cylinder figures
A hydraulic cylinder is a mechanical actuator that is used to provide unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke. Some of the key features of hydraulic cylinders include:
- Power and force: Hydraulic cylinders can provide a high level of force, making them ideal for heavy-duty applications.
- Smooth operation: Hydraulic cylinders provide smooth and precise movement, which is ideal for applications that require accuracy.
- Durability: Hydraulic cylinders are designed to withstand harsh environments, high pressure, and heavy loads, making them highly durable.
- Self-lubricating: Hydraulic cylinders have built-in lubrication systems that help to reduce wear and tear, prolonging their lifespan.
- Versatility: Hydraulic cylinders can be used in a wide range of applications, including construction equipment, agriculture machinery, and industrial machinery.
- Control: Hydraulic cylinders provide excellent control over the movement of the load, making them ideal for applications that require precise positioning.
- Energy efficiency: Hydraulic cylinders are highly energy-efficient, requiring only a small amount of fluid to produce a large amount of force.
- Low maintenance: Hydraulic cylinders require minimal maintenance, which reduces downtime and maintenance costs.
Tips: What causes a hydraulic cylinder to stop working?
There can be several reasons why a hydraulic cylinder stops working, including:
- Blocked hydraulic lines: If the hydraulic lines are clogged or blocked, the pressure cannot build up in the cylinder, which prevents it from functioning.
- Damaged seals: Seals are critical components that prevent hydraulic fluid from leaking out of the cylinder. If they are damaged, fluid can leak out, which can cause the cylinder to stop working.
- Faulty hydraulic pump: The hydraulic pump is responsible for generating the pressure required to operate the cylinder. If the pump is not functioning correctly, it can cause the cylinder to stop working.
- Contaminated hydraulic fluid: Hydraulic fluid that is contaminated with debris or water can damage the seals and other components, leading to cylinder failure.
- Bent or damaged cylinder rod: A bent or damaged cylinder rod can cause the cylinder to malfunction or stop working altogether.
- Worn or damaged piston: The piston inside the cylinder can wear out or become damaged over time, which can cause it to stop functioning correctly.
- Mechanical damage: Accidents, impacts, or other forms of mechanical damage can cause the cylinder to stop working.
