The heavy-duty double-acting cylinders are constructed with high quality aluminum components, including a magnetic piston fitted with a PTFE wear band. The magnetic piston can be used along 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 to ensure smooth rod motion while maintaining rod rigidity and stability. With a maximum operating pressure of 250 psi, this series includes bore sizes from 1.5 to four inches. Depending on bore size, available stroke lengths range from one to 24 inches.
