The Gas Spring is a Hydro - pneumatic adjusting element with pressure tube, piston rod & end fittings, which acts as a counter balancer. It contains high pressurized nitorgen. The gas spring function is
As Compared to Coil Springs, Gas Spring has an Extremely Flat, Nearly Linear Characteristic Curve, which Facilitates Uniform Comfortable Adjustment or Pivoting Movement.
Also, its Another Advantage Over Mechanical Spring, is Damping. When Gas Spring is Installed Piston Rod Facing Downwards, During Extension it First Travels Through Gas Portion and then through Oil Portion. The Oil Dampens the Movement and Reduces the Speed Considerably. However, the Extension Speed and Damping Characteristics Can be Adjusted as Per Applications Requirement.Application
The Gas Spring has Wide Application Range, it Varies From Automobile to Machine Tools, House Hold Furniture, Over Head Filing Cabinat and Kitchen Cabinets. Also it Can be Designed as Per Specific Requirements.Other Advantages and Benefits are:
In their technical design, gas springs must be customized for special applications-on the basis of specifications and drawings. Match your application and requirements with us. Our consultants will be glad to help you.Mounting Instructions & Orientation
If possible, install gas springs so that the piston rod points down in the inactive state – unless they were designed for non-orientation specific installation. This will ensure optimum lubrication of the guide and sealing system at all times.

For a long service life, gas springs must not jam or be subjected to bending or lateral forces. We offer suitable end fittings, such as angle joints. They will ensure non-jamming alignment.Functional Safety
The functional safety of a gas spring comes mainly from the smooth piston rod surface and the seals that keep the gas pressure on the inside. Do not subject gas springs to bending stresses. You should not install gas springs that have been damaged in after-sales, mechanical processing. Welding on the gas spring, as well as contamination or paint on the piston rod can cause device failure. Avoid modifications and manipulations, impacts, tensile stress, heating, painting, and removal of the imprint. Be on the safe side: Do not install defective or improperly altered products.Temperature Range
IDEAL gas springs are designed for a default temperature range of -20°C to +80°C. Of course, there are also gas springs for more extreme applications.Life and Maintenance
Gas springs are maintenance-free! They do not require greasing or lubrication. They are designed for their corresponding applications and will work flawlessly for many years.Transportation and Storage
Store gas springs with the piston rod pointing down. Actuate the gas spring after 6 months of storage. Avoid damage: Do not transport gas springs as bulk material. Make sure not to contaminate gas springs with thin packaging film or adhesive tape.Caution
Do not heat / open or put in openfire the gas spring, such act may lead to injuries because of high pressure.We are not responsible for any damages or any kind.Disposal
Gas spring consists mostly the metal which can be recycled, but firstly it should be depressurized. Please ask us about the disposal instructions. When gas springs are no longer needed, they should be disposed of in an environmentally correct manner. For this purpose they should be drilled, release the compressed nitrogen gas and the oil to be drained. For more specific details, please refer to our disposal instructions.Warning
With gas spring fully charged with high pressure gas, non-compliance with this warning may lead to accidents , product damages , malfunctions , etc. Before using the spring make sure to fully understand and observe the warning below
