Choosing the Right Hydraulic Cylinder
Due to the wide choice of hydraulic cylinders there is to choose from, you need to make sure you choose the correct one for your job.
The main things to think about are:
- Where is the cylinder being used?
- How will the cylinder be used?
- How much space do you need?
- What stroke is required?
- How heavy the load is?
- Steel or Aluminium?
- What hydraulic pressure do you need?
Once you have the answer to all of these, making the choice on a hydraulic cylinder will be much easier. But if you’re still unsure, TJI Solutions is your one stop shop for all your requirements covering all industries and applications. Please get in touch today and we will be happy to answer any of your questions.

Single-Acting, Load Return cylinders. The R Series cylinders feature a visible indicator band alerts when stroke limit is reached. Overflow port (weep hole) stroke limiter prevents piston from being overextended. Optional swivel load caps reduce the effect of off-center loading tilts up to 5 degrees. Radial grooves on the top of cap reduce load slippage.
Double-Acting, Hydraulic Return cylinders. These cylinders come standard with swivel caps to reduce the effects of off-center loading. Built-in safety relief valve prevents over-pressurization of the retraction circuit. Each cylinders has two 9796 3/8″ NPTF female half couplers.
HIGH-TONNAGE, LOW CYCLE, HYDRAULIC RETURN.
- Visible indicator band alerts when stroke limit is reached; overflow port (“weep hole”) stroke limiter prevents piston from being overextended.
