Single Acting Cylinder
A single-acting cylinder is a cylinder in which the working fluid acts on one side of the piston only, there are two types of piston’s backward movements:
- Exterior Air Pressure; the piston return to the ‘home’ position by using pressure from weight or the other pressure from the outside.
- Spring Compression; the piston return to the ‘home’ position by using a spring in the Cylinder. The spring must force against the internal friction and the piston pushes the oil in the other chamber back to the reservoir.
Double Acting Cylinder
Double-acting cylinders made up from steel are well burnished while the piston made up from mild steel and a seal between the piston and cylinder, or sealable bearing cover that supports the shaft moves in a straight line is endurable to the pressure from both sides.
Telescopic Cylinders incorporates a piston rod nested within a series of hollow stages of an increasing diameter. Upon actuation, the piston rod and each succeeding stage "telescopes" out as a segmented piston.
