Next-Generation Gas Springs Live Longer

Tuesday, January 1, 2008
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.

Next-generation gas springs live longer
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.
