In colloquial speech RAL refers to the RAL Classic system. Sometimes customers are not sure about the RAL codes required by them. While they could easily identify the colors […]
Series of articles written to better understand the workings of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders.
The main parts which move in a regular basis in a hydraulic cylinder is the piston rod along with the piston. The continuous to and fro motion induces considerable wear and tear on the rod. This wear and tear reduces life of seals in the cylinder and in turn reduces the life of the cylinder. […]
We discuss how much plating is really appropriate on a piston rod for a hydraulic cylinder? Anything on the lower side decreases life of the piston rod and in turn of the hydraulic cylinder. We receive cylinders for refurbishment and repairs and quite often we find the plating thickness to be lower than 20 microns. […]
As a main part of hydraulic cylinder, the piston rod is used in tough surrounding and corrosive condition; consequently a high quality protecting layer is essential. Currently EHC, electroplating hard chromium (hard chrome) is a widespread method for piston rod due to powerful performance
Friction loss is the loss of energy or “head” that occurs in pipe flow due to viscous effects generated by the surface of the pipe.
