Determining Cylinder Force

The potential force (or power) of a pneumatic cylinder is complex mathematical formula. You don't need to worry about that because we make it easy to determine force by supplying "Power Factor Push" and "Power Factor Pull" values for each of the cylinder bore sizes we sell. Simply take the Power Factor value and multiply by the amount of air pressure (PSI) you will be supplying to the cylinder.


For example, our 3/4" bore double-acting cylinders have a "Power Factor Push" of ".39". If we supply 100psi to this cylinder it will have a push force of 39 pounds (.39 x 100 = 39).

To find a cylinders Power Factor go to a cylinder product page and look for the "Power Factor Push" and "Power Factor Pull" values in the "Additional Information" section.
