Hydraulic Cylinders Perth
Hydraulic cylinders are one of the major basic components found in any hydraulic system. They must be capable of withstanding the very large pressures used to move the pistons they house, and be supremely resistant to corrosion, since even a small amount of pitting in the cylinder wall or rod is enough to render them useless. Gerrard Hydraulics supplies hydraulic cylinders that meet the most exacting criteria. As well as supporting all the major brands in common Australian use, we are Western Australian distributors for Baker Hydraulics, a South Australian supplier which represents the highest standard in hydraulic cylinders.
As with so many aspects of hydraulic engineering, hydraulic cylinders come in all shapes and sizes. We supply simple, single stroke units, a range of standard front end loader cylinders, telescopic cylinders, phasing cylinders, and standard cylinders for applications such as side tipper mechanisms. For agricultural users, we supply ASAE-standard cylinder sizes
What is ASAE?
Gerrard Hydraulics has a well-deserved reputation for the supply of hydraulics systems and components to Western Australia’s agricultural sector. ASAE stands for American Society of Agricultural Engineers, a body set up to standardise engineering practice for agriculture. ASAE specification takes the guesswork out of buying hydraulics for farm machinery, by specifying the retracted length for cylinders of standard stroke. ASAE specifies multiple standard stroke lengths and bore sizes –
Strokes: 6″, 8″, 12″, 16″, 18″, 24″, 30″, 36″, 48″
Bores: 1.5″, 2″, 2.5″, 3″, 3.5″, 4″, 5″
As with any aspect of Gerrard Hydraulics’ service, we can also provide custom designed cylinders of any length. Through our association with Baker Hydraulics, premier designers and makers of hydraulic cylinders, we offer the very best in this challenging field. Whether you need the sheer grunt of a massive ram, or the delicacy and finesse of a small bore servo cylinder, Gerrard Hydraulics will take care of your needs.
