What Is a Tie Rod Cylinder?

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 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.

Pros and cons


What Type of Tie Rod Cylinder Do You Have?

No matter whether you have a standard or heavy-duty tie rod hydraulic cylinder, our expertly trained technicians have the experience and knowledge to fix whatever fault they incur.

What Type of Position Sensor Does Your Cylinder Have?

Do you have an electronic, smart sensor cylinder?

Generally, if your cylinder has an electronic plug or port connection, position sensing is in the cylinder. Different OEM and equipment manufactures have proprietary systems, however common systems include:

(Tie Rod) Standard-Duty

Standard-Duty Tie Rod Cylinders

Used in industrial actuators rated to 2,500 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.

(Tie Rod) Heavy-Duty

Heavy-Duty Tie Rod Cylinders

These cylinders can be used in hydraulic systems up to 5,000 psi due to their thicker body walls and larger rod diameters. Their additional strength and rigidity are designed to withstand heavy-duty work environments.
