Tips

First of all, make sure you have the correct installation position with the cylinder pointing upwards. The most difficult application is when the gas spring hinges through the horizon as shown below.
If you have a similar application, we recommend a dynamic damping.

Below are some important tips for a good functioning and long lifespan of our gas springs.

  • Never use paint, grease or oil on the piston rod and protect it against mechanical damage.
  • Always ensure that the gas spring is properly aligned and preferably use hinged end fittings.
  • Only load the gas spring axially.
  • If the application contains a lot of vibrations, make sure there is some play in the connections.
  • Gas springs must never be subjected to a tensile load. If this is the case, always use our Anti-Tear systems.
  • Gas springs can normally be used at temperatures between -30ºC and +80ºC.
  • Especially in case of condensation and frost, the seal can be subjected to heavier loads.
  • Never use gas springs as a damper.
  • If you are unsure about a possible use, always ask for our experience first.
