Volume of pneumatic cylinders
« on: January 25, 2019, 12:51:15 PM »
I've calculated the volume of the cylinders we have in our inventory. This is useful when you want to look at how much air is used vs. how much air you have in your accumulators. Volume is in cubic inches and milliliters.

The Clippard accumulators are 574 mL in volume.
The high pressure side is 120 psi max.
The low (operating) pressure side is 60 psi max.

Length (in) Bore (in) volume (cu in) volume (mL)
2 3/4 0.88 14.42
4 3/4 1.76 28.84
5 3/4 2.21 36.22
6 3/4 2.65 43.43
12 3/4 5.30 86.85
6 1 1/16 5.32 87.18
8 1 1/16 7.09 116.18
2.5 1 1/2 4.22 69.15
8 1 1/2 13.5 221.23
4 2 12.57 205.99
