Hydraulic cylinders

Hydraulic cylinders convert fluid power into linear force and motion. The linear force generated by a hydraulic cylinder is a product of system pressure and effective area, minus inefficiencies (losses).

This document explains how to size a hydraulic cylinder for a specific application. The relationships between pressure, area, displacement volume, flow, speed, and the influence of inefficiencies are all considered in detail.
