A tie rod cylinder has high-strength threaded steel rods that hold the end caps to the cylinder barrel. These cylinders usually have static seals to prevent leakage between the barrel and end-cap interface. Small cylinders usually have four tie rods, and large, industrial types can have as many as twenty to withstand intense force.
Lauded for their compact design, hydraulic and pneumatic tie rod cylinders are most often used in factory applications. Most do not exceed 3,000 psi and many are built to NFPA standards, offering easy disassembly if a malfunction occurs. At Cylinders, Inc., we repair both tie rod hydraulic cylinders and pneumatic ones.
Pros and cons
No matter whether you have a standard pneumatic or heavy-duty tie rod hydraulic cylinder, our expertly trained technicians have the experience and knowledge to fix whatever fault they incur.
Used in industrial actuators rated to 2500 psi, standard-duty tie rod cylinders are easy to repair as their standardized dimensions allow the convenient interchange of components from different manufacturers with the same mountings.
These cylinders can be used in hydraulic systems up to 5000 psi due to their thicker body walls and larger rod diameters. Their additional strength and rigidity are designed to withstand heavy-duty work environments.
We use superior quality replacement parts and draw on our expert workmanship to fabricate tie rod cylinder components when needed. Our highly trained technicians provide pragmatic solutions and only advise cylinder replacement if there’s no other alternative or it is more cost effective.
After receiving a tie rod cylinder, our technicians will carefully inspect it to assess the damage. They’ll get in touch with the client and explain what caused the failure and how they plan to fix it. Our team endeavors to repair cylinders as swiftly as possible, whether it's resealing the cylinder or replacing or fabricating a new part.
There are many parts and components that can make up a tie rod cylinder. A cylinder can fail because one or numerous parts need repairing or replacing:
At Cylinders, Inc., we can replace and repair any of these components, and in some cases, can also fabricate required parts to increase cylinder life.
Once the repair is complete, the tie rod cylinder is pressure-tested to ensure it’s safe, reliable, and can withstand maximum pressure. We make sure all repaired cylinders operate at optimal efficiency.
The cost to repair a tie rod cylinder depends on its type, application, and extent of the damage. If you bring your cylinder to our shop, we can assess the damage and provide you with a quote.
Tie rod cylinders have four or more threaded tie bolts that hold together the cylinder tube. Because they are built with tie rods, they’re easy to disassemble, repair and interchange.
At Cylinders, Inc., we offer a 1-year warranty on all our tie rod cylinder repairs. A cylinder’s longevity is dependent on the intensity of its application. However, if regularly maintained and well-looked after, cylinders can outlast their warranty.
