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. 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 WiperDurable elastomer rod wiper prevents contamination of bearing area.
Rod SealPressure - energized, wear compensating U-cup rod seal for positive sealing.
Mounting ThreadsExtra large mounting threads and rabbets make on-the-job mounting easy.
Rod BearingLow-friction nylon rod bearing designed for high cycle life. Bronze rod bearings are available in D and DM series cylinders for side-load conditions.
Head and CapLightweight aluminum heads and caps for long corrosion-resistant life.
Head and CapHeads and caps are fixed to the barrel by a circumflex key design, easily repairable without special tool.
BoreFixed (1-1/8", 1-1/2" bores) and adjustable (2"+ bores) cushions are available.
Cushion sealCheck valve cushion seal offers fast breakaway, self-aligning positive cushioning.
BarrelPrecision drawn, lightweight, anodized aluminum barrels.
PistonMultiple piston style options - see catalog for more information.
Flairline single-acting cylinders are spring extend or retract and last 4-5 times longer than industrial throwaways. Single actuation conserves air while minimizing control valve expense. All cylinders are built to withstand harsh operating conditions. Available with standard F, O, H, or D type pistons. Customized single-acting products and sizes are available.
Flairline double-acting, repairable cylinders are lightweight, economical, and durable far beyond the competitive industrial throwaways. Industry leading low friction service for low-pressure minimum breakaway is available with the OLF Series. For added stability when side loading occurs, select the D Series, which contains a piston wear strip and bronze rod bearing for maximum durability. Operating systems can be pneumatic or hydraulic (F Series pneumatic only). Customized products are available.
Double-Acting, Double Ended
Double-ended cylinders allow equal force and speed in either direction. A large selection of rod mounting attachments permit work at both ends of the cylinder. Piston rod extensions, cushions, alternate porting, high and low temperature seals, magnetic switches, and heavy-duty springs on single acting standard version cylinders are available. Customized products are available.
Drop-In Crossover, Round Body Cylinders
The I Models double-acting and Models IDE double-ended cylinders save you money because they are dimensionally interchangeable with certain brands and other manufacturers. Standard I and IDE crossover cylinders also provide low friction performance for low-pressure applications and minimum breakaway. These quality cylinders are built with: aluminum heads and caps, anodized barrels, chrome-plated rods, nylon rod bearings, rod wipers and universal mounting accessories. See catalog for other models.
Tandem, Round Body Cylinders
Tandem models consist of two cylinders joined by a common center section and piston rod. Operated as two double-acting cylinders, Series FT or DT can be used to multiply force without increasing pressure or bore size. Filling the rod end cylinder with oil and using a flow control between its ports, tandems can provide the accurate speed regulation of a hydraulic cylinder while the cap end unit is operated with lower cost air. Series FT and DT are also available in single and double-ended multi-positioned models.
Cap-to-Cap, Round Body Cylinders
Cap-to-Cap models incorporate two F, O, H, or D type cylinders joined at the cap end by a common center section. This is a very flexible product to accurately achieve three positions with the same stroke or four positions with a different stroke length, depending on your engineering application
Round Body Cylinders with Reed & Electronic Sensors
Reed and Hall Effect sensors are available with any quality high performance Flairline cylinder for automated stroke control. Stainless steel mounting bands can be adjusted to any location on the cylinder allowing several sensors to initiate and control any sequence function.
Double-Acting, NFPA Interchangeable, Round Body Cylinders
Flairline's FI, OI, and OILF cylinders compete in the market for NFPA interchangeable products but are typically specified for their low-friction function and economical, long service life. Low friction pneumatic service is standard with the OILF models, which is designed for low-pressure applications and zero G breakaway requirements in ergonomic assembly line balancing applications. The FI models are a good, lower cost, interchangeable alternative to the competitor products.
Double-Acting, Double-Ended, NFPA Interchangeable Cylinders
Double-ended cylinders feature piston rod extensions from each end; as one end is extended, the opposite end is retracted. Working force, and speed are equal in both directions. A large selection of rod mounting attachments permits work at both ends of the cylinder. Available F and O type pistons provide low cost, high performance for your pneumatic or hydraulic application. Piston rod extensions, cushions, alternate porting, high and low temperature seals, magnetic switches, and heavy-duty springs on single acting versions are available. In addition, customized options are available.
Double-Acting, NFPA Interchangeable Cylinders with Reed and Electronic Sensors
Reed and Hall Effect sensors are available with any quality high performance Flairline cylinder for automated stroke control. Stainless steel mounting bands can be adjusted to any location on the cylinder allowing several sensors to initiate and control any sequence function. Push to connect fittings are standard to make installation quick and easy.
Digit-Air, Small Bore, Round Body Cylinders
Flairline's Digit-Air single and double-acting cylinders are durable, inexpensive, and repairable, small bore cylinders that last 4-5 times longer than the industry throwaways before needing repair. The Digit-Air models also referred to as miniature cylinders are a cost saving alternative that saves replacement cost, maintenance labor and machine downtime. Standard construction includes: anodized aluminum barrels, aluminum heads and caps, O-ring piston, bronze rod bearings, and stainless steel rods. Specify FSM/MSM for head nose mounting, and FTM/MTM for cap end universal swivel mounting. The FTMR/MTMR and FSMR/MSMR single-acting models are recommended for rugged applications where a thin walled product won't last.
