A double acting pneumatic cylinder is one which was the *****, or output force, increase in both extending and revoking directions. Double acting cylinders have a gate at each end and transfer the piston forward and back by rotating the port that receives the high-pressure air, essential when a load must be drive in both directions such as opening as well as closing a gate.


Double acting cylinders are typically worked in all applications where the thrusts and ***** lengths need in excess of those possible from single acting cylinders. Small double acting cylinders are also used for purposes where positive end-of-***** positions need for both strokes.



In Double acting cylinders the Parker's P1F Series, are the most popularly used of all designs of linear actuators. They consider for nearly 95% of all cylinders used in pneumatic control circuits.


A double-acting cylinder which is the effective fluid that acts alternately on both sides of the device. To join the piston in a double-acting cylinder to an outside mechanism, such as a crankshaft, a hole must present in one end of the barrel for the piston rod, and this implement.
