Twelve tips for better cylinder selection

Hydraulic cylinders harness fluid pressure and flow to generate linear motion and force, and they work well in both industrial machines, like presses and plastic-molding machines, and in mobile equipment, like excavators and mining trucks.

Wika’s intrinsically safe submersible pressure transmitter model IL-10 has been designed for the highest requirements of level measurement. Owing to their high accuracy, reliability and their excellent media resistance, it is the ideal solution for almost all level measurements in hazardous areas.
