STANDARD CYLINDER BENEFITS AND FEATURES

1. Body:
American Cylinder’s custom designed aluminum extrusion. Machined, burnished and hardcoated inside and out to provide long life, low friction and reliable operation.
2. Rod:
Hard chrome plated Type 303 Stainless Steel provides a hard interface for the high quality Duralon® Rod Bearing.
3. 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.
4. End Caps (Rod Guide & Rear Head):
High strength anodized aluminum for light weight and corrosion resistance.
5. Springs:
Springs for spring action cylinders are made from music wire and designed for millions of trouble free cycles.
6. 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.
7. Repairable:
Snap ring construction with a minimal amount of component parts offers ease of disassembly. (See Warning on page 6 of the Product Catalog)
8. Prelubricated:
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

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.
