GAS SPRINGS

GAS SPRINGS: AUGMENTATION OF CONVENTIONAL COMPRESSION SPRINGS!

Gas Spring is the most ideal solution to handle large forces in a limited space. It consists of 3 major components namely Cylinder, Bush & Piston Rod. The Nitrogen Gas is filled in the cylinder and the piston rod compresses the gas to exert force. Since Gas has a natural tendency to expand, the piston rod is set at a pre-defined (Force = Surface Area x Pressure)

The speciality of FIBRO Gas Springs:

  • Patented Safety Feature
  • PED Approved for 20 lakh full strokes
  • Piston Speed up to 2 m/s
  • Chrome 6 free offering better corrosion protection

Apart from adhering stipulated Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68/EU, some of the Gas Springs are equipped with additional features making them The Safer Choice.

FIBRO ADVANTAGE
SAFETY FEATURES

PED APPROVAL FOR 2 MILLION STROKES

THE BENEFITS FOR YOU

  • PED approved for 2 million’ full strokes
  • Guaranteed safety and reliability for the entire service life of the spring

OVER STROKE PROTECTION

FIBRO GAS SPRINGS ARE DIFFERENT

The patented protection system against overstroke ensures either deformation of the spring cylinder wall in a predefined manner (A) or rupturing of the bolt by the piston rod at the bottom of the cylinder (B) thereby allowing the gas to escape into the atmosphere.

RETURN STROKE PROTECTION

FIBRO GAS SPRINGS ARE DIFFERENT

If the speed is too high during the return stroke, the collar on the piston rod will automatically break. The integrated patented safety stop in the piston rod then destroys the seal, allowing the gas to escape into the atmosphere and the gas spring to become depressurized

OVER PRESSURE PROTECTION

FIBRO GAS SPRINGS ARE DIFFERENT

If the pressure rises above the maximum permitted value, the safety collar on the sealing set is automatically destroyed allowing the gas to escape into the atmosphere, thus de-pressurizing the gas spring.

FIBRO ADVANTAGE
RELIABILITY FEATURES

FLEX GUIDE SOLUTION

The Flex GuideTM System is a flexible guide in the gas spring which absorbs lateral movements of the piston rod. It minimises friction and lowers the operating temperature

THE BENEFITS FOR YOU

  • Extended service life
  • Increased stroke frequency, i.e. more strokes per minute

SAFE HOSE CONNECTION, THE DUAL SEAL SYSTEM

THE FIBRO DUAL SEAR SYSTEM COMBINES A METAL SEAL WITH A SOFT ELASTOMER SEAL

THE BENEFITS FOR YOU

  • Leak- Tight Connections, even under Vibration
  • High process reliability
  • Minimized tool down time
  • Simple installation thanks to anti-rotation motion

WIRELESS PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (WPM)

FIBRO GAS SPRINGS ARE DIFFERENT

If the speed is too high during the return stroke, the collar on the piston rod will automatically break. The integrated patented safety stop in the piston rod then destroys the seal allowing the gas to escape into the atmosphere and gas spring to become depressurised

PROTECTED PISTON RODS

THE BENEFIT FOR YOU

• Significantly longer service life for gas springs under harsh operating conditions
Additional feature Heavy Duty Protection, HDP Series:

  1. Double the lifetime of the gas spring
  2. Fits all standard gas springs & all mounting options without any modifications
