ROD GUIDES, FILTER SILENCERS & BLEEDER VALVES


RG OUTBOARD ROD GUIDE

The Rod Guide screws onto the standard front head and duplicates the nose threads. This provides another rod bearing and seal 2” from the existing front head rod bearing, and will increase the life of cylinders whose rods are subject to side-thrust. This applies particularly to long stroke cylinders (20” & over) and cylinders mounted on a rear pivot. Available on all cylinders except Types SM and Square Head.

OPTIONAL PRESSURE PORT
This option is helpful in harsh environments. Positive pressure applied to the Rod Guide aids in keeping contamination out of the Cylinder.

Ordering Example:
RG 202 P

ORDERING PROCEDURE:
When ordering cylinders using Rod Guides, specify option “RG” in the cylinder nomenclature. This will provide the additional rod Length required and the Rod Guide assembled to the cylinder.

NOTE:
NOT AVAILABLE ON “C”
1-1/8″ BORE CYLINDERS

S SINTERED BRONZE FILTER-SILENCER

The 40 micron element effectively reduces air exhaust noises to an acceptable level with minimum flow restrictions. When used in vent ports they prevent foreign particles from entering units.

M-60 NON CLOGGING SINTERED BRONZE FILTER-SILENCER
The same 40 micron element as above, but with the added feature of a Pressure Relief Band.

Available only in 1/4” N.P.T.

VR BUILT-IN BLEEDER VALVE
The Built-in Bleeder Valves enable other bleed type equipment to be actuated. This is accomplished by installing a line from the Bleeder Pilot to the built-in Bleeder Valve. Actuation occurs approximately 1/8” before full stroke of Cylinder is completed. The Valves can be installed in either or both ends of the Cylinder.

VALVE LOCATIONS

Standard Cylinders:
Valves are located in the same plane as the tail pivot hole centerline and the ports are 180° from the valves.

Square Head Cylinders:
Valves are located 90° clockwise from ports, looking
from rod end.

Valve-in-Head Cylinders:
The front valve is located 90° counterclockwise from the inlet port and the rear valve is 45° clockwise from inlet port, looking from rod end. Special locations available upon request, at additional cost.

ORDERING PROCEDURE:

After cylinder nomenclature specify:

RF For valve installed in front end.
RR For rear end.
RB For both ends.

Available on All Types of 1-1/2”, 2”, 2-1/2”, 3” & 4” bore sizes. Maximum operating pressure is 150 P.S.I.
