VEVOR's Hydraulic Cylinders Unleashing the Power of Fluid Dynamics

Hydraulic cylinders play a pivotal role in transforming mechanical power into productive energy. A hydraulic cylinder is a mechanical actuator that converts hydraulic energy from fluid pressure into linear mechanical force that can be exerted on any substance.


Hydraulic cylinders are the workhorses behind the hydraulic systems, which revolve around the incompressibility of fluids, primarily hydraulic oil, to transmit force seamlessly. From manufacturing industries to the construction sector, automotive, agricultural, mechanical, material handling, and aerospace, hydraulic cylinders function in so many spaces.


Therefore, VEVOR adopts hydraulic cylinders for more innovations,  as our fingers are in these cookie jars.


How Do Hydraulic Cylinders Work?

The primary working mechanism of hydraulic cylinders involves a closed system where fluid is pressurized to exert force on a piston, resulting in controlled linear movement.


Its component consists of the cylinder barrel, which is the main body of the cylinder, housing the other components. Then, there is the piston, a cylindrical object that divides the cylinder into two and moves back and forth. The rod is connected to the piston. It moves from the cylinder to apply pressure on the external load. The seal ensures a tight fit between the moving parts to prevent leakages.


Hydraulic cylinders operate in a closed system. The cylinder is filled with hydraulic fluid, usually oil, which does not compress. The two chambers of the cylinder, divided by the piston, are known as the rod and cap side. There is also an inlet to supply fluid into the cylinder and an outlet to let it back into a reservoir.


The hydraulic cylinder generates pressure by pressurizing the fluid and then directing the pressurized fluid into one of the chambers. The pressurized fluid acts on the piston, enabling it to move in the desired position. The piston extends when the fluid is introduced to the rod side and retracts when the fluid is introduced into the cap side.


The piston’s movement exerts force on the rod, enabling it to act on the external load. The piston returns to its initial position after the fluid is released or redirected from the chamber.


Different Applications Of Hydraulic Cylinders

Hydraulic cylinders find many uses in different industries. Due to the high amount of power a hydraulic system can generate, these industries cannot do without them. Here are some applications of hydraulic cylinders across industries.



Many construction machines need high-pressure and high-power input to successfully carry out their tasks. Therefore, excavators, bulldozers, and loaders employ hydraulic cylinders to exert the needed power in lifting, forking, digging, etc.



Mining equipment like drilling rigs, loaders and conveyor systems use hydraulic cylinders to generate high power. The mining industry uses these machines for excavation, transportation, and material handling.


Marine Industry

Hydraulic cylinders are vital to marine systems. From ship steering mechanisms to anchor deployment and hatch operation, they all require the amount of power a hydraulic system generates.


Considerations and Controversies in Hydraulics

Interested parties and the general public have raised some concerns about hydraulic systems. From the manufacturing to the use and then disposal, various concerns have led to people having second thoughts about them.


Fortunately, the hydraulic system industry is a responsive one that has heard these concerns over time and put some considerations into them. Therefore, keep reading to see if any of these were your concerns and how they have been addressed.


Environmental Impact

Many have criticized the traditional hydraulic system for its impact on the environment. Concerns about it include fluid leaks, potential contamination, and improper disposal. The industry responds to this concern by developing environmentally friendly, biodegradable hydraulic fluid.


Many hydraulic system manufacturers also encourage take-back programs to prevent improper disposal. Moreover, manufacturers seek better innovations to ensure hydraulic systems last long, preventing too much waste.


Energy Efficiency

Concerns have been raised over time on the energy consumption of hydraulic systems. Many argue that the traditional hydraulic system consumes more energy than electromechanical systems.


Hydraulic system manufacturers are responding by making energy-efficient hydraulic systems, reducing the energy they need to operate.


Noise Pollution

Using a hydraulic system can be noisy, especially for high-pressure applications. People have raised concerns about the noise pollution they generate, especially in residential and highly urban areas.


The response to this is the creation of quieter components, using noise-reduction technologies leading to lower noise emissions.


Safety Concerns

Hydraulic systems are related to high pressure, posing safety concerns. People anticipate injuries and accidents from system failures.


The response of the hydraulic system industry to this is to enable thorough education of hydraulic system users. Manufacturers and other concerned parties use online and offline channels to ensure the correct information reaches everyone.
