AutomationDirect: Heavy-duty pneumatic air cylinders
AutomationDirect’s NITRA™ pneumatic product line includes D-Series heavy-duty air cylinders for harsh environments.
Interchangeable with other popular brands of NFPA cylinders, the heavy-duty double-acting cylinders are constructed with high-quality aluminum components, including a magnetic piston fitted with a PTFE wear band. The piston can be used with solid-state or reed switches for rod position sensing. The cylinders are also fitted with a Teflon-impregnated and hardcoat anodized heavy–duty external rod bearing. With a maximum operating pressure of 250 psi, this series includes bore sizes from 1 ½ to 4 in.; depending on bore size, available stroke lengths range from 1 to 24 in.
