What is the difference between a plunger and a swing hydraulic cylinder?
Tongxing Hydraulic General Exchange specializes in selling plunger type hydraulic cylinders and swing type hydraulic cylinders, telling you the difference between the two.
Cylinder type hydraulic cylinder:
1) The side-by-side electric hydraulic cylinder plunger cylinder is a single-acting hydraulic cylinder that can only complete one direction of movement by liquid pressure. The plunger return journey depends on other external forces or the self-weight of the plunger;
2) The plunger is only supported by the cylinder sleeve without contact with the cylinder sleeve, so that the cylinder sleeve is easy to process, so it is suitable for long stroke hydraulic cylinders;
3) The plunger is under total pressure during operation, so it must have sufficient stiffness;
4) The plunger component is often large, and when placed horizontally, it simply droops due to self-weight, forming a seal and leading unilateral wear, so its straight use is more favorable.
Swing hydraulic cylinder:
The hydraulic cylinder is a hydraulic performance element that converts hydraulic energy into mechanical energy and does linear reciprocating motion(or swing motion). It is simple in structure and reliable in operation. When it is used to complete reciprocating movement, it can avoid decelerating equipment, and there is no transmission gap, and the movement is stable, so it is widely used in various mechanical hydraulic systems. The output of the hydraulic cylinder is proportional to the effective area of the piston and the pressure difference on both sides; The hydraulic cylinder basically consists of a cylinder and cylinder head, piston and piston rods, sealing equipment, Buffer equipment and exhaust equipment.
The swing hydraulic cylinder is a performance element that outputs torque and completes reciprocating motion. It is also called a swing hydraulic motor. There are two forms of single leaves and double leaves. The stator block is fixed on the cylinder body and the blades and rotors are connected together. According to the direction of entering the oil, the blade will drive the rotor to swing back and forth.
