Hydraulic Equipment Components
Bronze Hydraulic Equipment Components
Hydraulic equipment relies on the efficient conversion of hydraulic energy into mechanical energy. Over the past several decades, the importance of and demand for hydraulic equipment in mobile and industrial applications has witnessed a considerable boost due to the ability of hydraulics to accomplish work with only a small amount of input force.
Bronze components lend greatly to the functionality of hydraulic equipment. National Bronze Manufacturing serves hydraulic equipment manufacturers worldwide with the various bronze components needed in the operation of hydraulics. From cylinder heads to packing glands and guide bushings, bronze components made by National Bronze Manufacturing are in use in hydraulic equipment across the globe.
The inherent properties in cast bronze bearings make them an ideal choice for hydraulic cylinders. Conditions including slower speeds and heavy load requirements of hydraulic cylinders are fulfilled by the properties of the cast bronze bearings. They are widely utilized in this industry for many critical components.
Hydraulic Cylinder Components
Cylinders allow hydraulic systems to apply linear motion and force without mechanical gears or levers by transferring the pressure from fluid through a piston to the point of operation.
Hydraulic cylinders are at work in both industrial applications (hydraulic presses, cranes, forges, packing machines), and mobile applications (agricultural machines, construction equipment, marine equipment). And, when compared with pneumatic, mechanical or electric systems, hydraulics can be simpler, more durable, and offer greater power.
It is imperative that all components that make up the hydraulic cylinder be of the highest quality to protect the investment of the cylinder. Here at National Bronze Mfg. Co. we provide many hydraulic cylinder manufacturers with the essential bronze machined components to ensure the highest quality end product.
Mounting Methods play an important role in cylinder performance. From flange mounts to centerline lug mounts to pivot mounts, each style has its advantages and disadvantages. Commonly bronze bushings are used in conjuction with the various types of mounts to avoid metal to metal contact.
