Aluminum Hydraulic Cylinders are lightweight,easy to carry and position to allow a higher cylinder capacity-to-weight-ratio.
Aluminum cylinders provides the lightest industrial solutions while having some limitation due to the material features.Compared with steel cylinders,it has a lower finite fatigue life.Aluminum cylinders shall not be used in high frequency application such as production.
Riverlake designs our aluminum cylinders to work not higher than 5000 work cycles under rated working pressure in normal applications.
A.Removable hardened saddle,protects plunger from damaged by abrasive surface contact.
B.Stop ring on all models absorbs eccentric loading and prevents plunger from over-extension.
C.Composite bearing material to prevent metal to metal contact,reducing side-load issues and increasing life.
D.Hard-coated plunger and base resist wear and prevent galling.
E.7075-T6 aluminum alloy components for maximum strength and minimum weight.
F.Plunger return spring on all single-acting models for prompt cylinder return.
G.Composite bearing material to prevent metal to metal contact,reducing side-load issues and increasing life.
H. Steel base plate protects cylinder base from abrasive surface and load-induced damage.
Warning:The steel plate protects the oil cylinder from damage and should not be removed!The bottom hole in these aluminum cylinders are designed to hold the steel plate in place.Do not connect device to the cylinders with the bottom hole!
