Welded vs Tie-Rod Cylinders

Welded Cylinder

The biggest difference is the end caps that hold the cylinder together. Welded cylinders have the end caps welded to the tube while Tie-rod cylinders are held together by four threaded tie bolts.

Welded cylinders often take up less space, can handle higher operating pressures and withstand harsh environments. Tie-rod cylinders are available with faster delivery times, easily maintained but do take up a larger footprint. Custom design options are available for both types of these high quality cylinders.
