T Type Cylinders

Flairline offers one of the most competitively priced heavy-duty, aluminum, tie rod type, pneumatic cylinders on the market today. The T-Type cylinder line is designed around NFPA specifications and will "drop-in' for replacement of any NFPA style cylinder anywhere in the market. Its heavy-duty features allow the cylinder to replace even all steel cylinders. If you have an old worn out NFPA style cylinder that needs replacing or if you have a brand new design and require a cylinder that will out last all others, spec the T-series in. All T-Type cylinders are warranted against failure do to material and workmanship for a period of 3 years. T-type heavy-duty tie rod cylinder features include pressure energized, wear compensating, u-cup piston seals (Buna N standard, Viton* available). An acetal wear ring installed on the piston prevents metal-to-metal contact and a bronze bearing provides maximum rod support and low friction for normal to high-load conditions. Available in 1-1/2' -8" bore sizes, with aluminum construction and chrome plated steel or stainless steel rods. Operating systems can be pneumatic up to 250 psi or hydraulic up to 400 psi (non-shock). Models include two rod sizes to choose from, double-acting and double acting double ended.

Pistons and their recommended applications

Tie Rod Cylinders
T Type  - Excellent for hydraulic or pneumatic. Best for side loading conditions.
TM Type  - Same as T Type and has magnet for use with reed and hall effect switches.
TL Type  - Low friction for pneumatic use, capable of handling minimum side load.

Note: The three pistons above are used in the various series in catalog FL-16-B.

Low Friction Cylinders

Flairline also offers its customers both, a round body and tie rod type low friction cylinder. These cylinders are widely used in the ergonomic arm industry as counterbalance units. These cylinders break-away at 1/2 to 2 psi (depending on the bore) and have very low running-friction. See our Catalog FL-32-C for round body styles OLF and OILF and Catalog FL-16-A for tie rod styles TL and TLS. Please note the tie rod low friction cylinders may not be listed in older versions of our catalogs, although, all envelope dimensions follow NFPA standards.
