Servo Hydraulic Cylinders2021-03-17

Servo hydraulic cylinders are used in test machines and hydraulic simulators.

Servo hydraulic cylinder design is different than standard hydraulic cylinders. The pistons effectively have no seals to reduce seal friction, using the hydraulic fluid to support the cylinder and lubricate its movement. Servo hydraulic systems rely on fast speed of control and mostly use servo valves to achieve this. Seal friction can cause a time lag in the system, hence the design of servo hydraulic cylinders.


Norton Fluid Power have specialist experience is overhauling existing servo hydraulic cylinders and providing extended operational life with proven modifications. We have overhauled numerous cylinders for test machines and simulators. Norton Fluid Power are also a distributor for Star Hydraulics, providing  servo valve repair and new valves.
