What is the maximum operating pressure of a hydraulic system?

What is the maximum operating pressure of a hydraulic system?

Every chain is only as strong as its weakest link. From that we can conclude that:

The maximum operating pressure in a hydraulic system is based on

the part with the smallest acceptable maximum operating pressure.


All hydraulic elements such as valves, tubes, hoses, etc. must be

adjusted to the maximum operating pressure for the system.

The following table gives an overview of the most important hydraulic

cylinders and their maximum operating pressures:



The specified maximum operating pressure of hydraulic cylinders must

never be exceeded - even briefly. This can lead to the destruction of

the cylinder, with the possible consequences of considerable personal

and material damage. In addition, it voids warranty claims, in any case.
