A new standard is on its way – the SC cylinder

During first and second quarter 2018 Stafsjö will introduce a new double-acting pneumatic cylinder manufactured by our collegues at Ebro Armaturen. It is a solid construction designed for tough knife gate applications available from 100 mm (4”) up to 320 mm (12.6”) bore diameter. The interface to valve adapter and gate clevis is the same as for the EC cylinder.

The SC cylinder has a hard anodized aluminium barrel with coated aluminium caps, hold strongly together by stainless steel tie rods to enable a long-term linear operation independent of position. The SC also include several internal and extended precision supports to further guarantee the linear stroke. A piston rod wiper in bottom end cap ensure that no material enter the cylinder.

The supply pressure for the cylinder should be max 10 bar and the compressed air should be dry or slightly oil misted. Temperature range for the actuator is -30 to +100 °C.

The SC cylinder is CE marked and also approved for use in EX areas according directive 2014/34/EU Group II category 2G/2D (zone 1 or 21).

Further information on the SC cylinder is available in the product data sheet, available to download from this page:
