Stainless Steel Series

Stainless Steel Series

STANDARD FEATURES AND BENEFITS

1

Stainless Steel Cylinder Body

Type 304 Stainless Steel manufactured to special mill specifications and tolerances to insure a long cylinder life.

2

Stainless Steel Rod

Ground & Polished Type 303 Stainless Steel rods are standard on the Stainless Steel Series. All rods 1/4" diameter and larger have wrench flats and stress relief grooves.

3

Piston Rod Assembly

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

4

End Caps, Piston

High strength aluminum alloy.

5

Magnet for Sensing Switch Actuation

Optional, refer to American Cylinder's MFC catalog for details.

6

Springs

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

7

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.

8

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.

9

Pivot Pin/Pivot Bushing

Stainless Steel Series cylinders are shipped with plated steel pivot pins as standard. Sintered bronze pivot bushings are available as an alternative standard option. (5/16", 1-3/4", 2" & 3" bores supplied with pivot bushing only.)

10

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.

11

Pre-lubricated

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

12

Pre-Tested

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