How to choose, process, and install hydraulic cylinder tubes properly, in order to make the hydraulic line system work more energy-efficient, reliable, and have a longer life? This has become an important issue for hydraulic technologies. As one of the leading China hydraulic tube manufacturer and supplier, Datong Hydraulic specializes in manufacturing hydraulic cylinder tubes and carbon steel honed tube for many years, and has many years experience of hydraulic tube related technology and research.
This article will briefly describe the hydraulic pipe selection, processing, installation, etc., with hope to help the customers in the hydraulic system industry who are in need.
Choose the right material and size of hydraulic tubes
The hydraulic cylinder tubes should be selected according to the system pressure, flow and application environment. Must pay attention to the strength of the tubing whether is enough, whether the pipe diameter and the wall thickness meet the system requirements, and the inner wall of the selected steel pipe must be smooth, non-corrosive, non-oxidized skin, no clips and other defects. If any of the following problems is found on the hydraulic cylinder tubes, it cannot be used:
- the inner and outer walls of the hydraulic pipe have been heavily rusted;
- the scratch depth of the pipe body is more than 10% of the wall thickness;
- the surface of the pipe body is recessed to more than 20% of the pipe diameter;
- the wall thickness of the pipe section is uneven and the ellipticity is obvious.
In applications of medium and high pressure hydraulic systems, the seamless steel tubes are generally used, because they have the advantages as high strength, low price, and easy leak-free connection, it is widely used in hydraulic systems.
— Cutting of hydraulic tubing
Pipes of hydraulic systems with a diameter of less than 50mm can be cut with a wheel cutter. Pipes with a diameter of more than 50mm can be mechanically cut, such as special cutting machine tools. Manual welding and oxygen cutting methods are strictly prohibited. After cutting, the end face of the pipe and the axial center line should be kept as perpendicular as possible. The cutting surface of the pipe must be flat. The pipe must be free from burrs, oxide scales, and slag.
— bending of hydraulic tubes
The bending of the pipe is preferably carried out on a mechanical or hydraulic pipe bender. General 38mm and below pipelines are cold-formed and bended in a cold state with a bender to avoid oxide scale and affect tube quality. The bends are not allowed to be bent during the production of the bends, and can be replaced by stamping elbows and other pipe fittings because deformations, wall thinning, and oxide scales are easily generated during hot bending.
