Tie Rod Mount
The flange and tie-rod mounts are basically the same, except that the cylinder tie rods are extended and used to mount the cylinder. To prevent misalignment, sagging or possible binding of the cylinder, the free end should be supported. The best use of tie-rods when extending on the blind end is in a thrust load application. When using tie-rods extended on the rod end, the best application is a tension load. Tie rod mounts are suited for many applications, but it should be noted that they are not as rigid as the flange type of mounting.
Solid End Cap and Side Lug Mount
The side lug mounted cylinder provides a fairly rigid mount. These types of cylinders can tolerate a slight amount of misalignment when the cylinder is at full stroke, but as the piston moves toward the blind end, the tolerance for misalignment decreases. It is important to note that if the cylinder is used properly (without misalignment), the mounting bolts are either in simple shear or tension without any compound stresses.
All pin mount cylinders need a provision on both ends for pivoting. These types of cylinders are designed to carry shear loads and the pins should be carried by bearings that are rigidly held and closely fit for the entire length of the pin.
All trunnion mount cylinders need a provision on both ends for pivoting. These types of cylinders are designed to carry shear loads and the trunnion pivot pins should be carred by bearings that are rigidly held and closely fit for the entire length of the pin.
Double Rod End
Double rod end styles are available in every mounting style except clevis. On double rod end cylinders where the rod ends are not the same, be sure to specify clearly which rod end is to go at which end of the cylinder in relation to your mounting requirements.
