This is a very cool tool for anyone who works with hydraulic cylinders. It can be used to calculate areas and volumes within the cylinder. Extension and retraction forces, times, velocities, and outflows can be calculated.
Cylinder characteristics can be entered in a number of different ways. Enter hydraulic flow, cylinder velocity, or stroke time and calculate the other two. User can also enter Hydraulic pressure, extend force or retract force and have the other two calculated.
One application for this is to measure the stroke time of a cylinder. By entering this with the bore diameter and stroke length, the system flow is calculated.
There is no Calculate button – As dimension and hydraulic flow parameters are entered, results are automatically calculated.
Calculations can be done in either metric or imperial units.
Results can be copied to the clipboard in a text format for use in e-mails, messages, or other documentation.
