  1. SAE ports are standard. NPTF ports are also available. Ports can be rotated to any position.
  2. The cylinder barrel is manufactured from cold-drawn, heavy-wall 1026 steel tubing polished to a micro-finish to create a low-friction surface for improved sealing and long piston bearing durability.
  3. An iron rod gland isthreaded into the tube to provide support for the bearing and to promote durability.
  4. One-piece iron piston provides strength and resistance to shock loads.
  5. Chrome plated, case-hardened piston rod provides between 50,000 and 100,000 PSI minimum yield steel (depending on size). Also available in stainless steel.
  6. High durometer gland o-ring seal and backup for leak-free service.
  7. Urethane rod seals are standard. Viton seals are also available.
  8. O-ring piston seals with wear bands are standard. Step cut cast iron rings, Viton seals, and hi-load seals are also available.
  9. Urethane wiper functions as a secondary seal, keeping out contaminates. For compatibility with other fluids or higher temperatures (to 400°F), a Viton wiper is available. Metallic scrapers and low friction wipers are also available.

  1. NPTF ports are standard. SAE ports are also available. Ports can be rotated to any position.
  2. Micro-polished, 1026 steel cylinder barrel with minimum drag for long piston bearing life and maximum seal.
  3. Threaded iron rod gland provides bearing support and durability.
  4. O-ring sealed piston is made in one piece of ductile iron, providing strength and durability against shock loads.
  5. Chrome-plated piston rod made of C1045 steel offers 75,000psi yield.
  6. High-durometer gland o-ring seal with backup for leak-free performance.
  7. Urethane rod seals are standard. Viton seals are also available.
  8. O-ring piston seals with wear bands are standard. Step cut cast iron rings, Viton seals, and hi-load seals are also available.
  9. Urethane wiper functions as a secondary seal, keeping out contaminates. For compatibility with other fluids or higher temperatures (to 400°F), a Viton wiper is available. Metallic scrapers and low friction wipers are also available.

  1. Standard NPTF ports. Port bosses are steel and are welded to the cylinder barrel. Ports can be rotated to any position relative to the mounting and the other ports. SAE ports are also available.
  2. Excellent sealing properties and piston bearing durability are created by the cold-drawn 1026 steel cylinder barrel, which is polished to a fine finish.
  3. Ductile iron rod gland is retained in the tube with a snap ring, providing excellent bearing support and durability.
  4. The one-piece, o-ring sealed piston is made of ductile iron for strength and prevention of damage from shock loads. A self-locking nut is used to lock
    the piston to the piston rod permanently.
  5. Chrome-plated piston rod made of C1045 steel offers 75,000psi yield.
  6. High-durometer gland o-ring seal with backup for leak-free performance.
  7. The WM series rod seals are twin lipped urethane. The WP series rod seals are nitrite u-cup. Viton seals are also available.
  8. The WM series standard piston seals are o-rings with wear bands. Step-cut cast iron rings, Viton seals, and hi-load seals optional. The WP series uses a nitrite u-cup. Viton seals are optional on WP series.
  9. Urethane rod wiper to prevent contamination. Viton wiper is available if fluid compatibility or high or temperatures are a consideration (to 400°F). Metallic scrapers and low-friction wipers are available options.
