7373Ace GS-8 Gas Springs.

Ace Controls


ACE industrial gas springs are maintenance-free and self-contained. They are available with body diameters from 8mm up to 70mm, and forces from 10N up to 13,000N. ACE GS-8 gas springs offer a high service life with a wear-resistance coating on the piston rod. Also an integrated low friction bearing with grease chamber which provides a very low break away force (GS-19 to GS-40). It allows them to be mounted in any orientation, although rod downwards is preferable if you want to take advantage of the built-in end position damping. The valve allows the force to be adjusted to your specific requirements. A wide variety of interchangeable end fittings makes installation easy and versatile. ACE gas springs are universally applicable wherever you have lifting and lowering. They remove the need for ” muscle power” and provide controlled motion for lids, hoods, machine guards etc. The ACE selection software quickly specifies the correct gas spring for your individual application.

Function: ACE industrial gas springs provide a maintenance-free sealed for life system, being filled with high pressure nitrogen gas. The oil zone filling provides end position damping and internal lubrication for a long lifetime. On the extension stroke of the gas spring, for example when opening a car tailgate, the nitrogen gas flows through the metering orifice in the piston to provide a controlled opening speed and the oil zone provides damping at the fully open position to avoid impact damage. The gas spring should be mounted “rod down” for this damping to be effective. On closing the tailgate the gas spring helps support the weight. The metering orifice controls the extension and compression velocities of the gas spring.

Operating fluid: Nitrogen gas and oil       Mounting: In any position        Operating temperature range: -20° C to 80° C

On request: Without damping, extended length damping, special force curves, special lengths and alternative end fittings
