Model HP - NFPA High Pressure Hydraulic Cylinders

"Double Rod End Cylinders:      / Y"

Peninsular Model HP high pressure hydraulic cylinders may be ordered with piston rods extending out of both the front and rear cylinder heads (double rod end cylinders), thus, creating simultaneous push and pull linear movement at both cylinder ends. Please refer to the illustration below that shows an internal view of a double rod end cylinder capable of stroking simultaneously at both cylinder ends.

 

The below illustrations represent a Double Rod End Cylinder

 that would be ordered with a 4" Stroke.

Although the vast majority of double rod end cylinders contain the same piston rod diameter at both ends of the cylinder, it should be known that occasionally Peninsular is called upon to manufacture these cylinders with different piston rod diameters and rod end threads at each cylinder end to suit a specific application. Should this be your requirement, please do not hesitate to contact us.

There are hundreds of thousands of applications within the world of automated manufacturing systems that require the use of double rod end cylinders, and we have incorporated our improved double rod end design throughout our entire product line for over 50 years. The National Fluid Power Association (NFPA) lists about 24 standard cylinder mounting styles for single rod cylinders, however, not all of these mounting styles are suitable for double rod end cylinders, because many of these mounting adaptors are located on the back end of the cylinder.

The three mounting style charts below show the Peninsular mounting styles that can be (1) configured and manufactured (2) other mounts that can not be configured within this configurator - just call us and we will configure these mounts for you (and yes we do manufacture these) and (3) cylinder mounts that cannot be made into double rod end cylinders.

When you have selected a double rod end cylinder you will see a  / Y in the cylinder part number indicating this double rod end feature, after the cylinder has been generated and configured.
