Standard Features & 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 aluminium 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.
