Airpot’s snubbers are designed in a special way which provides unparalleled energy dissipation accuracy by eliminating friction from their working elements. The materials which are used have built-in lubricity, high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent stability under temperature/humidity extremes, close coefficients of thermal expansion, and non-deteriorating performance due to age or non-use. The basic parts are a graphitized carbon piston, precision ground to millionths of an inch TIR inside an annealed, borosilicate glass cylinder with a precision fire-polished bore. Airpot snubbers are available in 4 bore sizes ranging from 0.627” to 1.75” and strokes lengths of 1.1” to 2.3”.
Features of Snubber:
- Not connected to the damped mass they are working with
- Used in accurate end of stroke and shock absorbtion applications
- Primary function is energy dissipation
- One way only,(damping in compression)
- Low force return spring for self resetting
