March 31, 2016—Milwaukee Cylinder announces Vulcan Series hydraulic cylinders. Designed to operate at higher temperatures than typical cylinder environments, the Vulcan Series is suitable for industrial workplaces with rugged operations, continuous cycles and hot environments.
Vulcan Series hydraulic cylinders provide complete customization, allowing users to match the right level of temperature protection to the specific application, including very high ambient temperature environments.
The heavy-duty cylinder design can withstand high cycle times and provide a long, maintenance-free service life. The basic design can be modified to handle high temperature applications, based on specific application needs.
Seals can be changed to withstand higher temperatures and/or additional components can be added to the cylinder itself. Water-cooled jackets can better moderate the internal temperature of the cylinder and reduce cylinder failure that would otherwise come from high temperature degradation of hydraulic fluid or heat-related seal failure.
