Pneumatic Tie Rod Cylinder - C Series (inch, medium duty) | Parker NA

Pneumatic Tie Rod Cylinder - C Series (inch, medium duty)

The C Series is a configurable general purpose legacy cylinder. The aluminum body and end caps make it a light weight solution. With 5 bore sizes, 7 mounting styles, and a variety of options, the C Series is adaptable to many applications.

    The C Series is a configurable, general purpose legacy cylinder. The aluminum body and end caps make it a light weight solution. An oil impregnated, bronze rod bushing provides maximum bearing area and a non-abrasive surface for long service life. A synthetic rubber coated piston is designed to compensate for wear, eliminating metal-to-metal contact. Fully adjustable, floating cushions offer an efficient means of decelerating heavy loads. The modular design offers flexibility by providing three different mounting options with the basic cylinder. In addition to this, four different mounting kits can be bolted on quickly and easily.

    • Bore Sizes: 1-1/4", 1-3/4", 2-1/2", 3-5/8", and 4-1/2"
    • Stroke Length: available in any practical stroke length, max 20"" standard
    • Operating characteristics: double acting, spring extend, spring return
    • Maximum Operating Pressure:  200 psi or 13 bar
    • Operating Temperature range: -4°F to +165°F or -20°C to +74°C
    • C Series cylinders can be operated up to 200°F with reduced service life
    • Cushions (standard or adjustable), bumpers available
    • Prelubrication C series air cylinders are factory pre-lubricated. Parker Lube-A-Cyl is applied to cylinder bore, piston rod and seals. Lube-A-Cyl is an extreme pressure lubricant which adheres to the surfaces and for medium duty service (additional lubrication is not necessary)
    • Construction: hard coated aluminum cylinder body
    • Mounting Styles: three standard choices with 4 optional mounting kits available for bolting on quickly and easily
