Low Profile LPC-Series




American Cylinder’s custom designed aluminum extrusion. Machined, burnished and hardcoated inside and out to provide long life, low friction and reliable operation.



Hard chrome plated Type 303 Stainless Steel provides a hard interface for the high quality Duralon® Rod Bearing.


Rod Bearing

High performance self-lubricating Duralon® rod bearings provide high load carrying capacity and low running friction. Unsightly dark oily residue is eliminated by using the Duralon® Bushing in conjunction with the hard chrome plated rod material.


End Caps (Rod Guide & Rear Head):

High strength anodized aluminum for light weight and corrosion resistance.



Springs for spring action cylinders are made from music wire and designed for millions of trouble free cycles.


Carboxylated Nitrile Rod & Piston Seals

Special compound internally lubricated carboxylated nitrile Quad-X rod & piston seals ensure positive sealing while providing low friction and maximum resistance against seal wear. Additional special seal compounds and lubricants are available upon request.



Snap ring construction with a minimal amount of component parts offers ease of disassembly. (See Warning on page 6 of the Product Catalog)



All cylinders are factory lubricated with a non-toxic, non-flammable, USDA listed teflon based lubricant. The non-staining, odorless, non-migratory nature of this lubricant provides lubricity for millions of trouble free cycles


Temperature Rating

The standard LPC® Series seals are recommended for temperatures from -20°F to 200°F (-25°C to 95°C). Fluoroelastomer seals are available as an option for high temperature applications up to 325°F (163°C) and/or chemical compatibility. Special seal compounds and lubricants are available upon request.



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


Magnet for Sensing Switch Actuation

American Cylinder’s custom internal magnet designed to actuate American’s Low Profile Reed or Solid State Switches. (Optional, Refer to page 1 of the Product Catalog.)
