Our goal is to make it easy and fun to use pneumatics. If you run into any problems or have any questions please contact us, we are here to assist you!
We have created an easy to use part lettering system to make it easy to locate parts for your cylinder. Locate this cylinder's Easy Code in the table below. Look for that Easy Code (letter) next to the cylinder part in the Cylinder Accessories Section of our web site.
Please note that the 1-1/2" bore has a larger back end pivot mount that does not have threads.
To locate the correct Fittings with proper sizes for your cylinder locate the Air Port Size in the table below and match the fitting size to that. The most common fittings used to connect air to the cylinder are Male Connector Push-On and Male Swivel Elbow. You can also purchase a Cylinder Hookup Starter Kit which has all of the fittings, airline, and solenoid valve.
To calculate cylinder force take the Power Factor (push or pull) and multiply by the amount of air pressure (psi) that you will be supplying to the cylinder. For example; If the Power Factor: Push = .44 and the pressure = 100psi then the push force of the cylinder will be 44 pounds of force (.44 * 100 = 44).
More Options Available
We have many additional options for these cylinders. Some of these include; internal bumpers (for noise reduction), rotated air ports, embedded pivot pin (brass pivot bushing is standard), flouresoelastomer seals (for superior chemical resistance), magnet for sensing switch, . Please contact us if you require any of these special options.
