Strutting its stuff!

Associated Spring Raymond expands portfolio of standard gas struts

Associated Spring Raymond has expanded its portfolio of standard gas struts to include more than 12,000 pre-engineered precision nitride and stainless steel options.

Offered in varied combinations of size, stroke, length, and force, the new expanded offering provides additional flexibility for how you want your application to perform, says the company.

Standard gas struts are often referred to as gas shocks, gas pistons or gas springs. They provide a ‘push’ type force, adding lift support or counterbalance in application.

Longevity and corrosion resistance

The nitride gas strut (listed as GSNI or ‘N’) model combines cost-effective steel construction with a nitrided rod for increased longevity and additional corrosion resistance. Nitride gas strut models surpass a 144-hour salt spray test per ASTM B117.

Nitrided gas springs are black in appearance. Stainless steel (listed as GSSX or ‘S’) models utilise Type 316 stainless steel construction for maximum corrosion resistance, typically surpassing 500 hours of salt spray resistance.

Special chromium coating

The rods are plated with a special chromium coating to increase hardness and reduce wear. Type 316 stainless steel provides the cleanliness and corrosion protection required for the marine, medical and food service industries. Standard struts have damping on extension only.

Portfolio now includes 12,000-plus pre-engineered precision nitride and stainless steel options.
