Elixir Single Acting Hydraulic Cylinder's operation is very simple. The supply of hydraulic fluid is implemented only on one side, which is why it can be operated only unilaterally. The return movement in this procedure is usually performed by a spring and sometimes also by its own weight if the force is not too great. A cylinder with single-acting operation can usually be operated using a diverting valve. Operation using correct and appropriate components is also possible.
The most important advantage of cylinders with single acting operation are:
- smaller moving force,
- small installation length,
- small force of the return movement.
Hydraulic cylinders with single acting operation do not depend on electricity and are used particularly for simple tasks like operating flaps or doors, ejection devices or drawers.
