Low Profile Pneumatic Cylinders

Body: American Cylinder’s custom designed aluminum extrusion. Machined, burnished and hardcoated inside and out to provide long life, low friction and reliable operation. Patent pending.

Rod: Hard chrome plated Type 303 Stainless Steel provides a hard interface for the high quality Duralon® Rod Bearing.

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.

End Caps (Rod Guide & Rear Head): High strength anodized aluminum for light weight and corrosion resistance.

Springs: Springs for spring action cylinders are made from music wire and designed for millions of trouble free cycles.

Carboxylated Nitrile Rod & Piston Seals: s Special compound internally lubricated carboxylated nitrile Quad-X rod & piston seals ensure positive sealing while providing low friction and maximum resistance against seal wear. Duralon® is a Registered Trademark of Rexnord Corp.

Repairable: Snap ring construction with a minimal amount of component parts offers ease of disassembly. (See Warning on page 6.)

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.

Temperature Rating: 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 400°F (204°C) and/or chemical compatibility. Special seal compounds and lubricants are available upon request.

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.

Magnet for Sensing Switch Actuation: American Cylinder’s custom internal magnet designed to actuate American’s Low Profile Reed or Hall Effect Switches. (Optional, Refer to page 1 Standard Options.)
