Type 304 Stainless Steel manufactured to special mill specifications and tolerances to insure a long cylinder life.
Ground & Polished Type 303 Stainless Steel rods are standard. All rods have wrench flats and stress relief grooves.
Piston rods are threaded, anaerobically sealed, and machine staked into the piston for triple protection.
Made of acetal resin, a crystalline thermoplastic co-polymer made by the polymerization of formaldehyde.
Springs for spring action cylinders are made from stainless steel and designed for millions of cycles. Special spring forces are available.
Pressure energized lip type 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). FDA approved seals are available as a standard Option (-35). Additional special seal compounds and lubricants are available upon request
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. FDA approved lubrication is standard with the FDA seal Option (-35).
The quality of each cylinder is assured by testing each unit for leakage prior to shipment. Quality control provides added value to American cylinders
