2" BORE WELDED DOUBLE ACTING CYLINDER W/TUBE & EYE ENDS Brand new, Surplus Center private label cylinder. Internal gland with wire-lock retaining ring. Pin-hole thru rod and cross-tube at base end. Made in USA.
How would I work out the maximum column load at 36" extension
A: The column load is the same throughout the stroke of the cylinder. For calculation purposes the attachment points at the rod pin and the piston are used. The rod seal/wiper does not offer enough additional support to make an appreciable difference. Comparable products rate the column load for this bore, stroke, and rod to 2410 lbs. This translates to a maximum operating pressure of 750 psi on extend before the column load is exceeded. Pull force is not affected and the cylinder can pull at the full rated pressure.

What is the Column Load PSI max. @ full extension?
A: The column load at this length of rod needs to be de-rated to approximately 2400 lbs of force, or 765 psi operating pressure.
