Brass pneumatic cylinders, the end caps and tube are constructed from machined brass, the cylinder tube is polished and honed offering long life expectancy and smooth operation. The cylinder rod is made from steel making them reliable and extremely robust.
Brass pneumatic cylinders, due to their miniature size are particularly useful for applications where space is restricted and often used where other pneumatic cylinders with aluminium parts, usually the end caps, are not permitted.
Bore sizes range from 5mm to 25mm; they are single or double acting and all non-magnetic. Standard stroke lengths are 10mm, 12.5mm, 20mm, 25mm, 37.5mm, 40mm and 50mm.
Brass cylinders are available as ‘U type’ or ‘S type’, this refers to the mounting option, there are two options.
‘U type’ brass cylinders are threaded both ends and supplied with lock nuts; both connection ports are 90° to the main cylinder body.
‘S type’ brass cylinders are nose threaded only; the front connection port is 90° to the cylinder body; the rear connection port is in-line with the cylinder body.
