The principle behind a gas spring is similar to a mechanical spring. It stores energy. The gas spring does not compress the material of the coil spring; instead, it stores energy by compressing its Nitrogen gas.
Although the gas spring may look like a hydraulic cylinder or pneumatic, it is not dependent on an external energy source for movement. Because a gas spring has a closed design, once it is manufactured and charged using inert nitrogen gas no additional gas can be introduced to the system.
Gas springs are pressure equal regardless of whether they’re fully extended, fully closed, or fully extended. This is different from a pneumatic or hydraulic piston that needs a pressure differential to allow it to move.
Then, how is it possible that no more gas is introduced while the internal pressure remains constant? The gas strut works because it extends. This happens due to the difference between the cross-sectional area and the rod, where the gas is not able to exert any pressure. It’s the difference between the nitrogen gas pressure at the rod’s interior and the atmospheric pressure at the rod’s external end that causes it to expand.
As the rod is pushed into a tube, its volume decreases, and gas expands. This compression causes spring-like behavior. An orifice located in the piston attached to the rod controls the extension speed and allows the flowing gas to pass through it.
The spring-like effect is created when the rod is pushed into the tube. As the gas pressure rises and decreases, the volume available is reduced. An orifice located in the piston attached to the rod controls the extension speed and allows the flowing gas across the piston.
What Does The Adjustable Pressure Gas Strut Accomplish?
This product is the right choice if your project calls for a gas-strut. However, it must be adaptable, responsive, and able to adjust in specific ways. This product can be used for any of the standard applications for gas strut Australia, as well as being adaptable.
These adjustable gas springs are great for product prototyping because they can achieve the same force as fixed-force production gas springs. They can also work where products are different in weight and can be degassed to give the appropriate action when required.
What Are Some Of The Key Benefits Offered By The Adjustable Force Gas Struts?
- They can be adjusted for any force within the range.
- After installation, you can easily modify the force.
- They are very easy to adjust using the standard tool included
- It is the ideal solution for prototyping and small production runs
- These can be purchased as an option on all types of Cam lock gas springs
- They are suitable for situations that require different application weights. There are many stainless steel options available
How Do The Adjustable Gas Struts Operate?
Standard, shrouded gas struts in stainless steel are all available in a which can be adjusted to your individual preferences.
The gas struts will be charged to their maximum force in the manufacturing process. Once the proper force has been determined, we can measure that pressure and supply production fixed force gas springs that are tailored to your needs.
Although theoretical forces are easily calculated, many factors cannot be determined. These include hinge friction and the customer’s perception of speed.
