What is a Pneumatic cylinder?

A pneumatic cylinder or air cylinder is a mechanical device which harnesses the power of compressed air to create a linear reciprocating motion. The pneumatic cylinder is similar to the hydraulic cylinders which use hydraulic fluid to drive the piston to its desired direction.

Many engineers prefer the use of pneumatics than hydraulics for the reason that it is quiet, cleaner and do not eat up a huge amount of space for hydraulic fluid storage. The operating factor in pneumatics is gas; leakage from its cylinder will not contaminate the facility’s surroundings thus making it more suitable if the plant requires cleanliness.

The cylinder materials may be chosen depending on the level of load, temperature, and its stroke lengths. The material of choice may range from aluminum to nickel plated brass and steel or stainless steel.

How does an air cylinder work?

Air cylinders once actuated compressed air enters into the tube at the other end of the piston and therefore, it passes on a force to the piston. As a result, a piston displacement occurs.

The pneumatic cylinder is an important part of a pneumatic system. This system is often used in the manufacturing and industrial sectors. These devices are prone to breakage especially when deterioration will take its toll. This may cause serious delays and impairment of our facilities production capability leading to profit loss. An air cylinder repair is a top priority when this problem occurs.

Our pneumatic cylinder repair shops can work on any pneumatic cylinder brands that include top brands in the market today such as Parker, Hydroline, Vickers, Sheffer. Our technicians can also work on both imperial and metric cylinders.

Air or Pneumatic cylinders deteriorate over time thus, affecting its performance and the entire pneumatic system. Common symptoms of a faulty air cylinder are:

  •   Low pressure
  • Leaking piston seal
  • Scored cylinder bore
  • Misaligned load
  • Huge difference in static and dynamic friction
  • Loose tie rod
  • Too much pressure
  • Extruded seals
  • Seal deterioration
  • Cylinder body leakage
  • Rod gland seal leaks
  • Contaminated circuits

These problems can cause major problems into our faculties particularly in the industries that rely heavily on pneumatics systems.
