Hydraulic Cylinder

The master cylinder converts non-hydraulic pressure into hydraulic force. This control equipment functions in order to move different devices that are positioned at the opposite end of the hydraulic system, as in one or more slave cylinders. Pistons move along the bore of the master cylinder. This movement transfers all through the hydraulic fluid, causing a movement of the slave cylinders. Hydraulic pressure generated by moving a piston in the direction of the slave cylinder compresses the fluid equally. By varying the comparative surface-area of every slave cylinder and/or of the master cylinder, the amount of displacement and pressure applied to each and every slave cylinder would alter.

Most commonly utilized in clutch and brake systems, the master cylinders, whenever used in the clutch system operates the unit called the slave cylinder. Moving the throw out bearing would lead to the high-friction material on the clutch's transmission to disengage from the metallic flywheel. In the brake systems, the operated systems are cylinders placed inside of brake drums and/or brake calipers. These cylinders can be referred to as wheel or slave cylinders. They work so as to push the brake pads towards a surface which revolves with the wheel until the stationary brake pads generate friction against the revolving surface.

For both the hydraulic clutch and brake, the flexible pressure hose or inflexible metal hard-walled tubing can be used. The flexible tubing is required is a short length adjacent to each wheel for movement relative to the car's chassis.

On top of each master cylinder is situated a reservoir providing a sufficient amount of brake fluid in order to prevent air from entering the master cylinder. New motor vehicles have one master cylinder for the brakes, with the brakes having two pistons. Numerous racing cars in addition to several very old vehicles comprise two separate master cylinders and just one piston each. The piston within a master cylinder operates a brake circuit. In passenger motor vehicles, the brake circuit normally leads to a caliper or brake shoe on two of the vehicle's wheels. The other brake circuit supplies brake-pressure in order to power the original two brakes. This particular design feature is done for safety reasons so that just two wheels lose their braking ability at the same time. This causes longer stopping distances and should require instant fixing but at least provides some braking capability which is much better than having no braking capability at all.
