Furnace cylinders

Furnaces in steel mills require hydraulic cylinders for tilting operations and to move and clamp doors and flaps. These cylinders are often exposed to high temperatures. It is essential that the movement of the furnace tilting cylinders is smooth and stick slip free. This is guaranteed by the use of Hunger DFE-low friction seals and bearing elements combined with finely polished cylinder bore and rod surfaces. Load control valves and pipe rupture valves guarantee safe load holding under all circumstances.
