Pressurised gas springs should be neutralized under controlled conditions with comprehensive security protection. The degassing may be performed through a small hole (2-3mm), pierced at the opposite end of the rod.
According to current regulations, each component is perfectly recyclable after this degassing process.
If springs are stored before use, they should be placed with the rod facing downwards to maintain the humidity of the cylinder.
The working frequency should not exceed 15 trajectories per minute.
The rod should be protected from particles, dust, paint, corrosive substances, etc.
No hitting, scratching, bending or painting of the rod.
No piercing, heating, welding, lubricating the gas spring or using it as a handle.
For best results we recommend assembling the compressed gas springs with the rod facing down. The gas spring should be assembled at a horizontal angle no higher than 30 degrees.
Always try to use fixed flanges or hinges on the ends, to prevent axial loads. If eye fixings are used, make sure to leave some space between the eye and the screw, to allow for lateral movements.
Make sure fixings are correctly aligned to avoid unnecessary axial forces due to misalignment.
Black polyurethane paint (different colours upon request)
Nitriding or hard chromium coating.
If not indicated otherwise, the standard fixing material is metal.
Damping resistance can be adjusted in accordance to any requirements, both in size and/or strength.
This can be adjusted within the limits set for each spring.
They can range between – 30ºC and +80ºC. Keep in mind that optimal performance occurs at room temperature and continuous operation in extreme temperatures shortens the life of the spring. Please contact us if you need gas springs suitable for extreme temperatures.
