RUHFUS Systemhydraulik offers complete system engineering and turnkey package for oil and water hydraulics. We design, manufacture and supply special hydraulic cylinders, power packs and electrical control panels.

Our custom-designed hydraulic cylinders (servomotors), power units, electrical controls (PLC or relay-contactor based) and single parts are being used in demanding applications and harsh environments such as offshore, oil and gas, marine, naval, ship building, shipyard and dry docks, ports, salvaging, dredging, bridges and locks, hydropower and dam gates, water and wind turbines, mining, cement, lifting, presses, heavy machinery and others.

Applications and capacities

We have the capacity to produce long stroke hydraulic (and pneumatic) cylinders with an overall length of 20m, piston stroke range of up to 15m, piston diameter of up to 1,200mm, outer diameter of up to 2,000mm and total weight of up to 25t for:

  • Riser tensioner
  • Heave compensation
  • Heavy lifting, marine-grade crane and hoist
  • Submersible equipment, underwater machinery
  • Linear motor, actuators, jacks
  • Energy dissipation or storage (cylinder with integrated accumulators)
  • Jack up, drilling rigs, platforms
  • Pipe laying vessels, A-frames, salvaging

Our equipment displays a wide range of special features, including:

3D model of a custom-designed hydraulic servomotor for radial gate.
Custom-designed hydraulic servomotors (jack) for stacker in the mining sector.
