Hydraulic Brake Cylinder

Cylinder Barrel: The main body of the cylinder, typically made of durable materials like steel, which houses the internal components.

Piston: This component moves within the barrel under hydraulic pressure, activating the braking mechanism.

Return Spring: Located inside the cylinder, this spring facilitates the automatic retraction of the piston, resetting the brake system.

Seals and Gaskets: These ensure the hydraulic fluid remains within the cylinder, maintaining pressure and preventing leaks.

Hydraulic Ports: Ports that allow the entry and exit of hydraulic fluid, controlling the movement of the piston.

Rod or Plunger: Connected to the piston, this part transmits the force to the brake mechanism.

Mounting Brackets: Used to securely attach the cylinder to the trailer’s brake system.


Tilt trailer hydraulic brake cylinder with internal return springs are designed with functionality and durability in mind. Their surfaces are typically treated with an anti-corrosion finish to resist damage from a variety of harsh environmental conditions. This hydraulic brake cylinder works by using hydraulic pressure to move a piston, which in turn activates the trailer’s braking mechanism. Once the hydraulic pressure is released, the internal return spring automatically retracts the piston, resetting the braking system for the next operation. This design ensures consistent and reliable braking performance.

The cylinders are designed to operate within a specific pressure range, suitable for the braking requirements of tilt trailers. The piston stroke or travel distance is precisely calibrated to provide the force required for effective braking without overstretching.


Automatic Retraction: The internal return spring ensures the piston retracts automatically, enhancing the brake system’s responsiveness and reliability.

Durability: Made from high-grade materials, the cylinder is built to withstand harsh operating conditions and frequent use.

Precision Braking: Designed for precise control, it allows for smooth and effective braking, crucial for trailer safety.

Ease of Maintenance: The simple yet robust design facilitates easy maintenance, reducing downtime and upkeep costs.

Compatibility: Suitable for a wide range of tilt trailer models, making it a versatile component in trailer manufacturing.


Tilt Trailers: Primarily used in tilt trailers for transporting goods where precise and reliable braking is essential.

Industrial Hauling: Employed in industrial and construction settings for hauling heavy equipment and materials.

Agricultural Trailers: Used in agricultural trailers for transporting farm produce and equipment.

Commercial Transport: Suitable for commercial transport trailers requiring dependable braking systems.
