Occasionally we get asked if liquids can be used in place of air in our dashpots. Let’s talk about some of the issues. Because liquids are essentially incompressible, a liquid-filled dashpot wouldn’t suffer from the “air spring” effect that all...

We use our graphite pistons and glass cylinders as the core technology to make our air dashpots and low friction air cylinders. Some customers go in a different direction and use the piston-cylinders to make sliding linear bearings. Let’s talk...

We at Airpot make three different low friction air cylinder lines under the Airpel name. Many customers have asked us how we measure the friction in these cylinders. Today, we’re going to explain how friction is measured in our Airpel...

One of the ways our air cylinders have such low friction is that the Airpot (and Airpel) pistons are fit to the cylinder with clearance and therefore, there are no true seals. However, this means that whenever there is a...

One issue that comes up when customizing your Airpot or Airpel pneumatic cylinders is how to connect a rod to the piston. The simplest way to connect the piston to the rod in pneumatic cylinders is usually the worst, but...
