## How do you size a hydraulic cylinder?

For example, for 2,000 psi of hydraulic pressure, calculate the surface area of the bore diameter, which is 3.14 X R2. If you use a 3-inch bore cylinder, calculate the radius (1.5 x 1.5 x 3.14), which equals 7.065 square inches of surface area. Then multiply this number by the 2,000 hydraulic psi being used.

## How do I choose a cylinder size?

To size a cylinder properly, you’ll need to determine how much force it needs to produce. When the force is known, you can determine the bore size or the power factor (effective piston area) of the cylinder with the equation: force = air pressure x power factor. Or, put another way: power factor = force ÷ air pressure.

## What hydraulic cylinder do I need?

You can calculate the size of the cylinder(s) needed by dividing the total load by the amount of points. For example, a 100 ton load with one lift point would need at least a 100 ton cylinder while that same load with four lift points would require four 25 ton cylinders.

## What is a hydraulic cylinder called?

A hydraulic cylinder (also called a linear hydraulic motor) is a mechanical actuator that is used to give a unidirectional force through a unidirectional stroke.

## What can a single acting hydraulic cylinder be used for?

A single acting hydraulic cylinder can be used for many different applications, such as a small mobile lift, a vehicle lift. All of our mini power packs have single acting hydraulic schematics, 2 way cartridge solenoid valves with normally closed/open, and check valves for holding cylinder pressure to make sure the cylinder doesn’t drop.
