GAS springs are available in certified AISI316 L stainless steel. On request, the springs can be supplied with a wide variety of stainless steel fastening elements.
Gas springs are basically made up of a perfectly sealed, pressurised casing, inside which a rod can run with reciprocating motion; a stop (pseudo-piston) is fixed on the rod for the sole purpose of preventing the rod itself from coming out of the casing when this undergoes pressure from the pressurised gas. The force produced by the gas spring is that resulting from the preload pressure thrust on the rod section only. The gas spring always performs total theoretical travel, unless it encounters mechanical checks which stop it first. A version with integrated mechanical lock is also available.
WHERE TO USE STAINLESS-STEEL GAS SPRINGS
Gas springs have various industrial uses: they are generally used to balance the operating forces of lift-up doors, hatchways and/or doors; they can also be used as tensioning devices or as shock absorbers.
Protective hatches – Vessel hatches – Skylights – Lifting heavy covers
GAS SPRING SIZING
A guide is available for sizing GAS springs; our technical department can in any case always be contacted for an in-depth study of the GAS spring for the required application.
