Flairline offers a broad series of Hi-Cycle Round Body cylinder products made of the finest materials, carefully constructed and tested to provide outstanding performance and reliability. All cylinders constructed of lightweight aluminum with quality components and seals. Flairline offers true value…. Low initial investment, durability, long life and trouble free operation.
Piston RodPiston Rods are made of a corrosion resistant chrome plated steel rod.
Rod WiperDouble-lipped urethane rod wiper.
Rod Bearing660 bronze rod bearing for maximum rod support and low friction for normal to high load.
Head and CapHead and cap are precision machined aluminum blocks. Black anodized for corrosion resistance.
Retaining RingSteel retaining ring for stregth and allows easy removal of rod bearing and seals without disassembly of cylinders.
Rod SealPressure - energized, wear compensating U-cup rod seal for positive sealing.
Barrel sealsBarrel Seals offer O-ring design for positive sealing.
Cushion SealFloating cusion seal "check valve" offers fast break
PortsN.P.T.F ports standard.
Tie RodsTie Rods are pre-stressed for maximum fatigue capacity. Rolled treads for added strength. Black oxide finish.
BarrelPrecision lightweight aluminum barrel is hard anodized inside and out to resist corrosion and abrasion. Fine I.D. micro-finish for long life and positive sealring.
PistonAluminum piston is threaded to rod, permanently locked with aerobic adhesive and secured with lock nut. Optional magnet installed under wear ring.
Wear RingSpecially formulated Acetal wear ring increases cylinder life and eliminate metal to metal contact.
Piston SealsPressure-energized wear compensating U-cup piston seals for positive sealing.
Cushion NeedlesAdjustable cushion needles have fine thread metering, are captive and flush.
Flairline double-acting NFPA cylinders are built to NFPA standards and can be used for all types of applications where economical, long-service actuators are required. Operating systems can be pneumatic or hydraulic. Precision components and sealing elements permit continuous operation in harsh environments. Models TS feature Oversized Rods. Models TL/TLS can be supplied with low running friction characteristics. These models incorporate a custom piston and special seal configuration. Models TLS feature Oversized Rods.
Double-Acting, Double Ended
Flairline double-acting, double-ended NFPA cylinders feature piston rod extensions from each end and include T type pistons. As one end is extended, the opposite end is retracted. Working range (stroke), force and speed are equal in both directions so work can be accomplished at both ends simultaneously. Models TSDE feature Oversized Rods.
Magnetic Switch Double-Acting
Flairline magnetic switch double-acting NFPA cylinders include TM type pistons with factory installed magnets for automated stoke sequencing. Magnetic switch options include Reed and Hall effect types. Tie Rod mounted brackets can be adjusted to any location on the cylinder allowing several switches to be mounted for controlling or initiating any sequence function. Models TSM feature Oversized Rods.

NuCushion from Flairline is a reliable low cost alternative for pneumatic cushions. Comprised of a durable elastomer material, the NuCushion has been designed to adapt to pneumatic cylinder pistons to provide superior cushioning over conventional pneumatic cushions. Reaction forces are considerably reduced when NuCushion impacts the cylinder head or cap.
