Type 304 Stainless Steel tubing with strict specifications and tolerances to ensure longer cylinder life.
Ground & Polished Type 303 Stainless Steel piston rod with special accuracy specifications is threaded, anaerobically sealed and machine staked into the piston for triple protection.
U-Cup seals provide low breakaway friction and extended seal life. Standard Buna-N seals are recommended for operating temperatures of -20° F to 200° F. Fluoroelastomer seals are available for higher temperature applications. Additional special seal compounds and lubricants are available upon request.
All cylinders are factory lubricated with a special high endurance oil.
All units (except 5/16 bore) are provided with a magnetic piston band as standard for applications requiring position sensing. Solid State Switches and Reed Switches are available as accessory items.
High strength aluminum alloy
Large diameter special accuracy Hard Chrome Plated Type 303 Stainless Steel shafts act as the inner race for the precision sleeve bearings and provide a rigid attachment for the tooling mounting bar.
Sturdy aluminum alloy, machined top and front surfaces with standard tapped mounting holes. Special configurations available upon request
Prevents cylinder rod binding ensuring longer life.
High performance Duralon® sleeve bearings have a composite inner liner of low-friction, self-lubricating fibers with a reinforced filamentwound Fiberglass and epoxy shell to provide smooth guided motion with high load carrying capabilities.
Standard through mounting holes designed for standard cap screws. Alternative threaded mounting holes available as a standard option. (See Option "T" in Product Catalog)
The quality of each assembly is assured by testing each unit for leakage and binding resistance prior to shipment.
