Corrosion Resistant CR Series
STANDARD FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Stainless Steel Cylinder Body
Type 304 Stainless Steel manufactured to special mill specifications and tolerances to insure a long cylinder life.
Stainless Steel Rod
Ground & Polished Type 303 Stainless Steel rods are standard on the Aluminum 76 Series. All rods have wrench flats and stress relief grooves.
Piston Rod Assembly
Piston rods are threaded, anaerobically sealed, and machine staked into the piston for triple protection.
End Caps & Piston
Made of acetal resin, a crystalline thermoplastic co-polymer made by the polymerization of formaldehyde.
Springs for spring action cylinders are made from music wire and designed for millions of cycles. Special spring forces are available.
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.
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.
