We offer a comprehensive range of Rigid-in-Extension Gas Springs that is known for its superior quality. When a locked, rigid-in-extension springs are subjected to a compression load, only the compressible gas resists the force transmitted from the piston to the floating piston. However, because the oil on the other side of the locked piston cannot expand the movement permitted is significantly less than experienced on a flexible locking gas spring. This gas will consequently compress and permit the rod to move. In addition, because the oil is always held between the piston and nose bearing, a rigid-in-extension spring can be used in any orientation. These gas springs have oil on both sides of the piston such that the chamber and the piston is always full of oil. Since oil is incompressible, when a tension load is applied to the locked rod the oil between the nose bearing and the piston will not compress and the rod cannot move. This oil is contained by a floating piston that separates it from the gas in the enclosed tube.
Our range of Rigid-in-extension Gas Springs is highly appreciated for its unique features that include:
