Yates manufactures, repairs, restores and rebuilds hydraulic cylinders. Let us help you upgrade your inefficient hydraulic equipment or restore your manufacturing lines to get your facility back to peak performance.

Single Acting vs. Double Acting Hydraulic Cylinder

Hydraulic systems operate by using oil or another fluid to move an actuating cylinder piston to perform specific tasks. These systems come primarily in two types: Single Acting Hydraulic Cylinders and Double Acting Hydraulic Cylinders (Double Action Cylinder).

Single Acting Hydraulic Cylinder:

  • Operates by using a fluid to push the piston in one direction.
  • Simplified design with fewer components minimizes the risk of failure.
  • Suitable for machines requiring unidirectional force, such as pressing machines.
  • The system automatically returns the piston to its initial position, either through the weight of the piston or a spring.
  • Choosing a single acting cylinder is advantageous for tasks requiring high-powered movement in one direction due to its simplicity and reliability.

Double Acting Hydraulic Cylinder (Double Action Cylinder):

  • Utilizes two lines, allowing the hydraulic system to exert force in both directions.
  • Complex in design, necessitating precise selection and regular maintenance.
  • Versatile and capable of executing tasks that require bidirectional forces, such as pressing and lifting.

Heavy-Duty Hydraulic Cylinder

Common Types of Cylinders

hydraulic cylinder suppliersAt Yates Cylinders, we manufacture and repair a wide range of single and double acting hydraulic cylinder systems. Here are common cylinders types we manufacture and repair for your needs:

Tie rod cylinders offer a robust design with long stroke, high pressure and versatile mount designs. Choose a tie rod to replace your current model or to create a light-to-heavy-duty hydraulic system.

Mill duty cylinders use bore sizes up to 24 inches to create up to 3,000 psi. Tackle extreme mill applications with a mill duty cylinder that matches the size and specifications of your equipment. When you need a hydraulic system that can operate day and night, turn to mill duty.

Welded cylinders are a compact option that’s ideally suited for heavy equipment and other compact applications. You can still enjoy up to 3,000 psi and a bore size between four and 24 inches, but welded cylinders can come in a smaller package. Repair services may take longer or require more specialized tools and techniques, so work with an expert repair or rebuild team at Yates Cylinders to maintain your welded cylinder hydraulic system.
