Here at Bishop Lifting Equipment, we provide a range of lifting equipment to international and UK customers from our base in Cardiff. With nearly 40 years of industry experience, we can offer expert advice and bespoke service to our clients. Included in our range is a selection of hydraulic cylinders for construction, engineering, and manufacturing purposes.
Hydraulic cylinders are a type of unidirectional actuator that is powered by pressurised hydraulic fluid, such as oil. At Bishop Lifting, we offer both single-acting and double-acting hydraulic cylinders.
Single-acting hydraulic cylinders use pressure build-up that is only in one direction. Fluid enters through one end of the cylinder and the piston rod extends through area difference. An internal reaction spring acts as an external force to return the rod. Single-acting hydraulic cylinders are simple and cost-effective.
Double-acting hydraulic cylinders offer a more complex design. The hydraulic pressure works in both directions, creating pushing and pulling movements. Fluid enters through the ports on both sides of the piston by retraction and extension. The pushing force is greater than the pulling force because of the area of the piston. Double-acting hydraulic cylinders are an excellent option for more complex applications.
We only source products from quality manufacturers, and we ensure our hydraulic cylinders are available for sale at competitive prices. Our hydraulic cylinders are available in a range of sizes and capacities, from small applications to large machinery. It is important to consider the best option for you, so our team of advisors can offer expert advice to meet your requirements.
