USES FOR 2-WAY DASHPOTS

• Support a platform with springs and use the 2-way dashpot to prevent resonance.

• Use the 2-way dashpot to damp the motion of a solenoid and also the spring return without affecting the static forces.

• Rotate an optic element into position with a spring and use a two-way dashpot to control the speed without adding friction which could affect the final position.

• Control the speed of a falling mass with the dashpot.

• Prevent a valve from resonating with the dashpot.

CAPABILITIES

All stock dashpots have adjustable damping.

The dashpot uses an ultra-low friction graphite piston with precision bore borosilicate glass cylinder.

6 bore sizes from 5.6 mm to 44.4 mm.

Strokes as short as 1 mm and as long as 100 mm for custom units.

How are these products used?

1.1

Dashpots and Shock Absorbers

Airpot dashpots and snubbers are designed for low force damping and low energy dissipation to provide control of motion, force, and impact energy.
1.2

Piston/Cylinder Sets

Innovative designers use Airpot® piston/cylinder sets for many original and demanding applications. With their unparalleled low friction and response to forces as low as only a few grams and pressures less than 0.2 psi, our piston/cylinder sets are basic building blocks for any design involving pneumatic actuation, gas displacement, or even as a linear guide.
