Hard Chrome-Plated & Polished Piston Rod

Minimum yield of 100,000 PSI. High tensile strength steel provides for reliable performance and longer rod seal life.


Solid Anodized Alumin Alloy Heads

Designed for corrosion resistance and extra strength.


Aluminum Alloy Tube 6063-T832

PSI of 35,000. Hard coated I.D. resists scoring and wear.


Aluminum Alloy Piston

Provides excellent characteristics against the hard coated I.D. cylinder body.



Piston and rod seals are of a U-Cup design for low friction with standard and magnetic field piston options. Air/Oil piston option adds a Quad-ring seal to the piston. Buna-N (B) material is standard, FKM (V) material should be used when high temp (over 200°F) or chemical resistance is required


Cast Iron Rod Bushing

Compatible with the hard chrome plated rod. Close grain cast iron bearing provides maximum wear resistance for long life.


Tie Rods

High strength steel to maintain compression on tube end seals


Tube End Seals

Fiber and nitrile base elastomer acting as a binder for positive sealing.


Quad Ring Wiper

Wipes the rod clean and keeps out contamination.


Factory Lubricated

Cylinder bodies are lubricated with Teflon-based compound.



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