Gas springs offer improved performance and lifespan

Gas springs offer improved performance and lifespan

Promising to deliver improved performance and a longer operational lifespan, Newtonline gas springs from Ace Controls International are available in cylinder sizes from 15 to 40mm with strokes from 20 to 1000mm and force ranges from 40 to 5000N.

Externally, their grooves and graphite-grey UV coating offer performance benefits. Ace says the new grooves offer a substantial installation advantage for the user. Alongside improved stability, the two grooves provide better running properties as well as excellent concentricity and centring. Less friction is also produced, which means that the extension force of the springs is immediately available.

The grey UV coating increases the mechanical strength of the tubes and, at the same time, offers improved resistance to chemicals and corrosion. Internally, Ace says it has been able to implement five integral enhancements into this new range. A new slide bearing is accommodated in the piston rod's guide. This results in reduced friction and improved lubrication, leading to less wear and tear.

In addition, the overall guide has been extended by some 50%. This allows higher side load forces than before to be absorbed. This results in safer, longer lasting constructions and lower costs in the long-term thanks to the reduction of failure risks.
The smooth running pistons with overflow channels are a Further innovation. The larger passage for the compressed nitrogen gas makes it easier to compress the gas spring without compromising the controlled extension.

And finally, Ace also uses a new valve technology that enables the industrial gas springs to be individually filled and also filled on-site by customers thanks to a new defined O-ring fitting. This gives more controlled filling and releasing of the pressurised nitrogen gas.
