Calculate Force in Your Hydraulic Cylinder the Easy Way

Single Acting Lock Nut Hydraulic Cylinders

In hydraulic systems, force is a crucial element in controlling the flow of liquids and gases. In this article, we will discuss how to calculate the force exerted by a hydraulic cylinder.

First, we need to know the dimensions of the piston and cylinder. Second, we need to know the working pressure of the hydraulic cylinder. The force exerted in a hydraulic cylinder can be calculated using the following equation: F = P x A. where F is the force, P is the pressure of the fluid in the cylinder, and A is the working effectiveness area of the piston. This equation can be used to calculate forces in any hydraulic system.

For example, the effective area of a double-acting cylinder is 0.145m² for push and 0.048m² for retraction, rated working pressure is 70Mpa.

The pushing force should be  F(push)=70MpaX0.145m²=10.15Ton, and the pulling force should be F(pull)=70MpaX0.048m²=3.3Ton.

North-South Commuter Railway Extension Project 1569 Ton Pile Load Testing

Project Images Project Introduction The North-South Commuter Railway, also known as the Clark–Calamba Railway, is a 147-kilometer urban rail transit system under construction on the island of Luzon, Philippines, primarily in the Greater Manila Area. The project will utilize the Japanese railway system that uses energy-efficient and reliable trains.  RIVERLAKE supplied a pile load testing system consisting of 2 units of 1000-ton hydraulic cylinders and 1 unit PLC-controlled electric hydraulic power unit. The system will perform pile load testing work up to 1569 tons in the NSCR Extension Project. RIVERLAKE PLC controlled hydraulic jacking system is designed for pile load tests up to 2000 tons where the load is to be applied in different stages and displayed accurately in real-time. The plc pile load test jacking system provides 6 default tonnage options, user can preset the loading tonnage and holding period of time for each option. During pile load test operation, the whole process is run automatically, just select one of the preset tonnages and press the auto-run button. the hydraulic jack will raise to its full stroke, upon reaching the preset load, the jacking system will stop automatically and hold the pressure for the preset period of time.

How do you bleed air out of a hydraulic hand pump

You bought a new hand pump but found that the hand pump does not suction oil when it is working. Even if you press the handle of the hand pump repeatedly, the hand pump starts to suction oil, and the oil intake is much less than normal. Please don’t worry, this is because there is a shortage of oil inside the fuel tank of the manual pump and it has not been used for a long time, and air has entered the inside of the plunger of the manual pump. At this time, we need to bleed the air inside the plunger, and the manual hydraulic pump can work normally. Let’s take a RIVERLAKE P-462 two-speed hydraulic hand pump as an example, in order to completely expel the air inside the hand hydraulic pump plunger, please follow the steps below: 1. Fill the manual pump oil tank with hydraulic oil, connect the manual pump, hydraulic hose, and hydraulic cylinder 2. Turn the air release valve clockwise to open the air release valve 3. Rotate counterclockwise to loosen the air release screw of the plunger, turn on the manual position valve of the manual pump, and press the handle repeatedly to discharge the air inside

Wind Turbine Guide: introduction, installation, and maintenance

WHAT IS A WIND TURBINE AND HOW DOES IT WORK? ​ A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into electrical energy. The most common type of wind turbine uses a rotor to capture the wind’s kinetic energy and turn it into rotational energy. This rotational energy is then converted into electrical energy by a generator. Wind turbines have been around for centuries, but have only recently become popular as people have looked for ways to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. Turbines can be used to generate power for homes and businesses, and can also be connected to the electrical grid. While there are some concerns about the impact of turbines on the environment, they are a much cleaner alternative to traditional power sources. HISTORY OF WIND TURBINES ​ The history of wind turbines is a long and varied one. The first wind turbines were built by the Egyptians in the 3rd century BC. These early turbines were used to power sailboats. In the 18th century, Dutch windmills were used to pump water out of mines. In the early 20th century, wind turbines began to be used to generate electricity. Today, wind turbines are

8 Steps You Should Follow To Manufacturer A High-quality Hydraulic Cylinder

What are the steps to follow in manufacturing hydraulic cylinders? As a hydraulic cylinder manufacturer with more than 20 years of experience, there is no better place than us to get the right answer. In order to produce high-quality hydraulic cylinders, there are 8 steps to follow and in this post, we are going to break them down in detail. Hydraulic Cylinder Design The hydraulic cylinders usually consist of a cylinder body, piston rod, and seal. All hydraulic components and sealing components have different requirements in terms of dimensional tolerances, surface roughness, shape and position tolerances, etc. During the manufacturing process, if the tolerance is too bad, such as the cylinder inner diameter, piston outer diameter, seal groove depth, width, and size of the seal ring hole, or out-of-roundness, burrs, or chrome plating due to processing problems In the case of falling off, the corresponding seal will be deformed, crushed, scratched, or not compacted. The seal function will be lost and the normal operation of the device cannot be guaranteed. In order to avoid such problems in the first place, when designing, ensure the geometric accuracy of each component and choose the correct seal; when manufacturing, ensure that the upper and lower
