Watch our video which demonstrates how to measure a Hydraulic Cylinder
Tools such as tape measure and vernier callipers.
When the cylinder is full retracted, (Closed Centres) measure from the centre of the rod pin to centre of the cylinder pin.
When the cylinder is fully extended, (Open Centres) measure from the centre of the rod pin to centre of the cylinder pin.
Measure the extended length of the hydraulic cylinder minus the retracted length.
Measure the outside diameter of the cylinder and subtract the wall thickness of the tubing. Standard bore sizes range from 25mm to 125mm bore diameters.
This measurement is mainly done with callipers.
