Double acting cylinder
MD200-06.00-029, Double Acting Cylinders, 2″ bore, 6″ stroked
Double acting cylinders are the most common cylinder used. They work at any angle and in most applications where hydraulic power is required. Double acting cylinders are designed with fluid on both the dead end and rod end of the cylinder and force is applied in both directions.
Even in applications where weight or force assist in one direction hydraulic pressure is applied to control acceleration or rate of travel. When fluid is supplied to the dead end of the cylinder more force is generated although travel is slower. When fluid is applied to the rod end of the cylinder travel is faster, but less force is applied.
