Peninsular Cylinder has been designing, engineering and building hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders since 1948. It has developed an industry reputation for manufacturing cylinders that stand up to otherwise destructive environments: 40% of products are supplied for special requirements. Its registered quality system is guided by the latest ISO 9001:2015 standards to ensure cylinders are built right the first time and go the distance once installed. They have helped customers to achieve optimal performance when challenged with difficult applications, such as:
- Extreme side loading
- Ambient temperatures from –50° to 600° F
- High shock conditions exceeding 15,000 psi
- Dry, non-lubricated operation in pneumatic systems
- Heavily contaminated environments
Although their cylinders work reliably for years in virtually every industry, primary fields include material handling, oil & gas, machine tool, steel & foundry, lumber & wood, and metal forming.
