Power Teams new pancake cylinders, available from PT Hydraulics Australia , feature a locking collar and are designed to lift where accessibility is limited. These single acting, load return cylinders range from 55T to 620T and are suitable for a range of industrial applications. The locking collar is designed to support a lifted load for an extended period of time without using hydraulic pressure.
Power Teams new pancake cylinders have an integral tilt saddle and hardened swivel caps as standard to prevent poor performance caused by side loading. The rams also feature an overflow port, ‘weep hole,’ which prevents the piston from being overextended under load. Pancake cylinders are coated with a special coating reducing the effects of corrosion and abrasions and allowing them to be used in harsh environments.
