Single Acting Cylinders

Updated: Mar 4

Cylinder with piston rod: as a compact cylinder, short stroke cylinder, flat cylinder, round cylinder, miniature cylinder, cartridge cylinder or stainless steel cylinder

Specified types in accordance with the ATEX directive are suitable for explosive atmospheres or are made of corrosion resistant stainless steel and therefore particularly easy to clean.

Pneumatic cylinders are most commonly used in the engineering and manufacturing industries to generate motion from the build-up of a pressurised gas. Of course, the type of pneumatic cylinder you require will vary depending on the specific application and industry. Pneumatic cylinders are also commonly known as air cylinders; due to the way the instrument operates.

There are three main types of pneumatic cylinders, including:

Single Acting Cylinders

Double Acting Cylinders

Telescoping Cylinders

Each of these cylinders are used for specific applications, meaning the one most suited to purpose, will depend on the job in question.

Single acting pneumatic cylinders only work on one end of the piston, compared to the double acting pneumatic cylinder, which operates on both. The single-acting cylinder is most commonly used in internal engines, such as car engines, where it relies on an element, including springs or a foreign load to push the piston in the other direction, creating the motion. Single acting pneumatic cylinders are sometimes also found in pumps and hydraulic rams, helping with heavy duty jobs, such as lifting heavy materials.

Thanks to the accurate rounded design and the overall linearity, these cylinders are used in those industrial sectors (food & beverages, pharmaceuticals) where technological reliability and easy cleaning are required.
