Cylinders 40 % lighter than corresponding steel cylinders. They are specially suitable for applications in which lightness and ease of handling are essential.
Manufactured in aircraft-grade aluminium to optimize resistance and reduce weight.
The design of the rails provides a level of resistance to side loads of up to 10 % of the rated load, which increases service life.
Critical elements are lined with a hard anodizing coat that supplies high resistance to wear and rust.
Most cylinders feature a transport handle.
They also have a base plate and a steel top saddle as a protection against abrasive surfaces and load-caused damage.
Aluminium vs Steel
Aluminium cylinders are a lighter substitute for steel cylinders and they are easier to handle.
They also have some disadvantages due to material properties, since aluminium has a lower finite fatigue life.
That means that aluminium cylinders should not be used in applications with a high number of cycles.
GCHydraulic aluminium cylinders are designed to withstand up to 5000 cycles at maximum operating pressure, which makes them a very good choice for simple hoisting applications with a number of cycles below this figure
