Aluminum 76 Series



Cylinder Body

Hard coated I.D. Aluminum Tubing has extreme hardness, excellent wear and seizure resistance, low coefficient of friction and high corrosion resistance. The aluminum body is twice as thick when compared to non-repairable stainless steel body cylinders.


Stainless Steel Rod

Ground & Polished Type 303 Stainless Steel rods are standard on the Aluminum 76 Series. All rods have wrench flats and stress relief grooves.


Piston Rod Assembly

Piston rods are threaded, anaerobically sealed, and machine staked into the piston for triple protection.


End Caps, Piston

High strength aluminum alloy.


Magnet for Sensing Switch Actuation

Optional, refer to American Cylinder’s MFC® Series catalog for details.



Springs for spring action cylinders are made from music wire and designed for millions of cycles. Special spring forces are available.


Rod Guide Bushing

Standard on all models. The oil impregnated sintered bronze bushing increases the life of the cylinder rod and provides a non-abrasive bearing surface.


Buna-N U-Cup Rod & Piston Seals

U-Cup seals provide low breakaway friction and maximize cylinder life expectancy. Standard Buna-N seals are recommended for operating temperatures of -20° F (-25°C) to 200° F (95°C). Fluoroelastomer seals are available for higher temperature applications. Additional special seal compounds and lubricants are available upon request.


Pivot Bushing

Sintered bronze pivot bushings are standard on all universal mount models


Rod Seal

Precision machined rod seal groove provides a smooth sealing surface while positively retaining the seal without requiring additional components and relying on press fit containment.



All cylinders are factory lubricated with a special high endurance oil mixture.



The quality of each cylinder is assured by testing each unit for leakage prior to shipment. Quality control provides added value to American cylinders.
