Cylinder and Pump System Setups

An overview of basic hydraulic system setups

Single-acting push application, such as in a press. The hand pump offers controlled cylinder advance, but may require many hand pump strokes in longer stroke applications when the cylinder capacity is 25 ton or above.

Cylinder
Applies hydraulic force.


Cylinder Base Plate
For applications such as lifting where additional cylinder stability is required.


Pump
Provides hydraulic flow.


Hose
Transports hydraulic fluid.


Male Coupler
For quick connection of the hose to system components.


Female Coupler
For quick connection of the hose end to the system components.


Gauge
To monitor pressure of the hydraulic circuit.


Gauge Adaptor
For quick and easy gauge installation.


Swivel Connector
Allows proper alignment of valves and/or gauges. Used when units being connected cannot be rotated.


Single-acting cylinder with longer stroke used for lifting applications.

Cylinder

Used to protect gauge from damage due to sudden pulses in the system. Needs no adjustment and allows correct positioning of gauge, prior to tightening.


4-Way Directional Control Valve
Controls the direction of hydraulic fluid in a double-acting system.


3-Way Directional Control Valve
Controls the direction of hydraulic fluid in a single-acting system.
