Calculate Force in Your Hydraulic Cylinder the Easy Way

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.
