Motion Controls Tie Rod Cylinders (Non-NFPA)

Motion Controls “D” Series non-NFPA tie rod cylinders share common engineering principles between bore sizes to reduce costs instead of offering any and all possibilities. For example, the “D” Series does not offer different rod sizes in the same bore, but we do offer different rod ends. This saves the cost of stocking end caps with different combinations of rod and bore sizes as in an NFPA style cylinder.


Motion Controls’ tie rod cylinders “D” Series does not offer different rod sizes in the same bore, but do offer different rod ends. These tie rod cylinders feature:

Non-Metallic Bearing

A specially compounded reinforced Teflon material is used for hte piston and rod bearings, assuring low friction characteristics. Bearing assembly is easily removed for quick replacement.

Long life D cylinders are specifically designed for non-lube operation

Piston Rod
