Hydraulic Cylinders, Pumps & Power Units

We offer a wide range of hydraulic cylinders, pumps and power units, along with seal kits, pump flanges and rod end bearings from leading brands such as Bosch Rexroth, SMC, SKF, Enerpac, Hi-Force and RS PRO.

What are hydraulic cylinders?

Hydraulic cylinders convert energy stored in hydraulic fluid into power which is used to move the cylinder in a linear movement. There are two types of hydraulic cylinder on offer here - fixed and portable:

  • Fixed Hydraulic Cylinders – these operate without mechanical gears or levers and are fixed components of machinery. They’re available in a choice of bore sizes and stroke lengths for a variety of applications. Available from brands SMC and Bosch Rexroth.
  • Portable Hydraulic Cylinders – These are movable versions of the above and are classified as either lifting or pulling types. Available from leading brands Hi-Force and Enerpac.

What are hydraulic pumps?

Hydraulic pumps take mechanical energy and turn it into fluid power. Conventionally driven by gas or electricity, there are also hand powered hydraulic pumps available:

  • Hydraulic Hand Pumps – without the need for a power source these pumps are extremely practical and cost effective. They’re easy to operate, low maintenance and extremely portable and we offer a range of models with a variety of specifications including displacement of liquid and effort needed to operate. Brands available include Enerpac, Hi-Force, SKF and RS PRO.
  • Hydraulic Gear Pumps – these use the action of interlocking cogs or the meshing of gears to transfer fluids using a cyclic pumping action. Simplistic in design with low maintenance, hydraulic gear pumps are suitable for pumping oils, with most being able to deal with highly viscous fluids. They’re used in applications such as lifting equipment, vehicles and plant equipment. We offer a variety of models from brands Bosch Rexroth and Parker.

There are also accessories available such as hydraulic cylinder seal kits and hydraulic pump seal kits comprising of a variety of tools and replacement parts for maintenance, rod end bearings and hydraulic pump flanges.
