The SR Stainless Steel Pneumatic Cylinder from Parker (www.parker.com) offers a readily available and economical alternative for light or medium duty applications. Available in 28 mounting styles and 12 bore sizes, the cylinders delivers the flexibility needed to suit a wide range of applications.
Its stainless steel piston rods are corrosion resistant, making the pneumatic cylinders ideal for applications demanding high cleanliness as well as high sanitary standards, like the food industry.
Eliminating the need for additional lubrication, the cylinder’s piston body features precision machined aluminum construction while its piston rod connections are loctited and threaded to deliver long life and leakproof service. All rod and piston seals offer a lipseal construction, with Buna-N as standard and a flourocarbon seal as an option.
In addition, its rod bushings are oil impregnated bronze and reamed to a close tolerance to provide for smooth operation, while its tube-to-head connection features a robust double rolled construction for a smooth break away.
Specifically designed to be interchangeable with other stainless steel cylinders offered on the market, the cylinder’s bore sizes range from 5/16 inches to 3 inches.
It can also be installed with air reservoirs, which can dramatically reduce the system’s pulsation and used as a means to store energy. However, customers should store energy with caution. Although air reservoir, if installed in the right location with the right size, can temporarily increase the flow of a cylinder or actuator, customers are warned not to exceed the cylinder’s rated pressure.
