Single vs. Double Acting Cylinders
At Best Metal Products we offer both single and double acting cylinders for your application needs. A single acting cylinder uses hydraulic pressure that actuates the rod in one direction: extend or retract, while the double acting cylinder both extends and retracts. The single acting cylinder is available in piston or ram type, and gravity or spring returned, based on your application. The double acting cylinders we produce are all piston type. In addition to these differences, you will need to look at what else your application requires to choose the correct hydraulic cylinder.
