Airpel Anti-Stiction Air Cylinders
Airpel Anti-Stiction Air Cylinders are specifically designed for highly accurate force control. They are built using a graphite piston / borosilicate glass cylinder combination in which each piston is selectively matched to fit the cylinder with extremely close clearances. They have unparalleled low friction, responding to forces as low as only a few grams and pressures less than 0.2 psi. Starting and running friction are almost identical, preventing jerky, uncontrolled starts and providing uniform smoothness throughout the full stroke of the device. Airpel low friction air cylinders are not affected by extreme temperature variations, run clean and do not contaminate surrounding components. No interference seals are required, and there are no lubricants or other liquids to leak. Materials used are clean running and self-lubricating and are capable of exceedingly high cycle rates. They do not heat up or materially change under conditions of rapid and/or continuous cycling and they have a life-span of multi-millions of cycles.
The Airpel Anti-Stiction Air Cylinders are available as follows
Imperial models of Airpel Anti-Stiction Air Cylinders are offered in three bore sizes- .366”, .627”, and .945.” Standard stroke lengths extend up to 12” with additional lengths available on special order. All ports and threaded connections are inch compatible.
