Numatics EQ Series OEM NFPA Interchangeable Cylinder Features include:


  • The file hard (60 RC) high strength aluminum alloy tube provides a smooth corrosion free sealing surface and excellent abrasion resistance

  • Head and cap are machined from (6061-T6) solid aluminum bar and anodized for corrosion resistance. A recess at the piston mating surface allows the air to work on a larger effective piston area for faster breakaway

  • The longer cast iron rod bushing provides maximum load bearing support. The graphite-filled material offers the best bearing surface with hard chrome plated piston rod.

  • The carboxilated nitrile with PTFE compound is used in the rod seal. The rounded lip design insures proper sealing and long life for no lube added service.

  • Rod wiper construction is a highly durable polyurethane.

  • High strength steel (100,000 psi minimum yield) piston rod has a ground, polished and hard chrome plated surface providing maximum life of bushing and seals.

  • The bushing retainer allows cartridge removal without disassembly.

  • Tie rods are 100,000 psi minimum yield steel for maximum holding power. Tie rod threads are rolled for strength and engagement.

  • The extra wide wear band is located at the furthest point from the rod bushing to support maximum loading.

  • The solid aluminum alloy piston is strong and lightweight.

  • The floating cushion design gives the fastest stroke reversal possible by providing instantaneous full flow to piston. Each cushion has a flush, retained adjustment needle.

  • The tube seals are compression type and reusable.

  • Improved port design allows increased flow rate.
