Welcome to take a tour of our VR factory to explore the world of Xinlan’s hydraulic cylinders!
Hydraulic cylinders play an important role in industrial production, and column load is an important performance indicator for hydraulic cylinders. Column load is a measure of the hydraulic cylinder’s ability to withstand axial force, which directly affects the service life of the cylinder. Therefore, it is important to understand the concept of column load and the factors that affect it.
What is Column Load?
Column load, also known as axial load, is the maximum axial force (in pounds) that a hydraulic cylinder can withstand before it fails. It is a key performance parameter for hydraulic cylinders. The column load of hydraulic cylinders is related to the cylinder’s internal components, such as pressure, diameter, stroke, and seal. Generally, the larger the diameter of the cylinder, the larger the column load; the shorter the cylinder stroke, the larger the column load; and the higher the pressure, the larger the column load.
Factors Affecting Column Load
The column load of a hydraulic cylinder is directly related to the pressure of the hydraulic cylinder. The higher the pressure, the greater the column load. When the pressure is too high, it will cause the cylinder to deform and damage, causing the cylinder to fail. Therefore, in the selection of hydraulic cylinders, it is necessary to choose the appropriate pressure according to the actual use requirements.
2. Cylinder Diameter
The diameter of the hydraulic cylinder is also an important factor affecting the column load. Generally, the larger the diameter of the cylinder, the greater the column load, and vice versa. When selecting a hydraulic cylinder, it is necessary to choose the appropriate diameter according to the actual requirements.
3. Cylinder Stroke
The stroke of the hydraulic cylinder is also an important factor affecting the column load. Generally, the shorter the stroke of the cylinder, the greater the column load. However, too short a stroke may cause the cylinder to be in a compressed state for too long, resulting in a decrease in the column load.
The seals of the hydraulic cylinder are also an important factor affecting the column load. The quality of the seals directly affects the service life of the hydraulic cylinder. Poor quality seals will cause leakage, resulting in a decrease in the column load of the hydraulic cylinder. Therefore, when selecting a hydraulic cylinder, it is necessary to choose seals with good quality and performance.
How to Test the Column Load of a Hydraulic Cylinder?
In order to determine the column load of a hydraulic cylinder, a hydraulic test is required. The test is used to measure the maximum axial force (in pounds) that the cylinder can withstand before it fails. If the test result is lower than the rated load of the cylinder, the cylinder should be replaced with a new one.
How to Prevent Column Load Failure?
In order to prevent the column load of a hydraulic cylinder from failing, the following measures should be taken:
1. Select Appropriate Pressure and Diameter
It is necessary to select an appropriate pressure and diameter according to the actual use requirements. The higher the pressure, the larger the diameter, the greater the column load.
2. Use High-quality Seals
It is necessary to use high-quality seals to prevent leakage and maintain the cylinder’s column load.
3. Regularly Check the Cylinder
It is necessary to regularly check the cylinder for signs of wear and tear, and replace parts as necessary.
