Hydraulic Cylinders for Marine/Offshore

We have a wealth of experience that enables us to design cylinders specifically for use in arduous environmental conditions.

Utilising highly certified materials such as stainless steel rods and marine paint specifications to help withstand the wide range of temperatures and fluids, whilst maintaining optimal integrity and durability.

Typical Applications

  • Offshore Cranes
  • A-frames
  • Davits
  • Dredging
  • Drilling Equipment
  • Heave Compensation
  • Ro-Ro Ferry Terminals
  • Dock/Flood Gates
  • Bascule Bridges
  • Ship Steering/Stabilisers
Hydraulic Cylinders for Marine/Offshore

Hydraulic Cylinders for Subsea

These cylinders are designed for extreme and not readily accessible environments, so it is important that they are very robust and most of all reliable.

Therefore, preventing seawater ingress is of utmost importance. We offer highly certified materials including either high-grade stainless steel or ceramic coated rods and subsea paint specifications.

Typical Applications

  • Ploughs
  • Mining
  • ROV’s
  • BOP’s
  • Risers Systems
  • Compensators
  • Flood Defences
  • Renewables
  • Renewables – Fixed & Floating
Hydraulic Cylinders for Subsea

Heavy Duty Cylinders

Robust cylinders that are generally of a bolted construction and non-cushioned, but with generous safety factors.

Specially designed to suit the wide range of pressures, temperatures and often where consideration for high cycle fatigue is required. Overall, designed and manufactured to provide a competitively priced cylinder.

Typical Applications

  • Steel Rolling Mills
  • Hot/Cold Mills
  • Mandrels
  • Downcoilers
  • Aluminium Casters
  • Furnaces
  • Servo Systems
  • Power Generation
Heavy Duty Cylinders

Roll Load Cylinders

Heavy-duty large bore (typically in excess of Ø1000mm) short stroke cylinders offering incredibly high output forces. Typically consisting of a forged alloy steel cylinder body and piston rod, precision machined with other components manufactured from certified materials without any welded joints.

Typical Applications

  • AGC Systems
  • Steel/Aluminium Plate Mills
  • Presses
  • Steckel Mills
  • Seismic Rubber Bearing Test Machines
Roll Load Cylinders

Telescopic Cylinders

Cylinders designed with a series of progressively smaller piston rods nested within one another, ideal for hydraulic applications requiring a large reach in a compact collapsed space.

Single acting extend designs are more commonly used however they rely on an alternate retraction force, such as an external load or gravity. But we can offer double acting telescopic designs and constant force/constant speed (synchronised) designs upon request.

Typical Applications

  • BOP Lifting
  • Wireline Cranes
  • Waste Management
  • Tunnelling Machines
  • Mobile Cranes
  • Platforms
  • Elevators
