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
