Notes:

  1. Force increments of 5 pounds.
  2. Product length tolerance is ± .08 in. (2.0 mm).
  3. Force tolerance is +3-8 lbs over the nominal force.
  4. Maximum piston speed is approximately 12 in. /sec. (.3 m/sec). Fast operation rates lead to excessive heat build-up resulting in internal seal damage.
  5. Gas springs are under pressure. Please dispose of properly. Do not puncture or open.
  6. Contact Ameritool for modified standards or for engineered specials to meet your exact needs.
