Hyson Products, Brecksville, OH, introduces Tanker B (TNKB), the latest generation of the Tanker gas-spring series introduced in 1985. The new springs offer 25 to 35 percent more force than the Super Tanker gas springs they replace.
TNKB springs feature dynamic lubrication to reduce heat buildup and extend spring life; a bore seal to resist contamination and rod damage; and a corrosion-resistant nitrided rod, self-aligning to accept normal die movement and a degree of sideload without damaging the cylinder seal surface. The spring comes in four sizes from 1000 to 6600 lb., and in strokes to 7.87 in.
