New cartridge greaser for rod seal protection of food grade cylinders.


We are pleased to announce the launch of a new version of our cartridge that has an integrated greaser.  The cartridge is targeted at applications such as slaughterhouse elevators or other food plant applications where the cylinder is mounted vertically in a highly aggressive environment.

A typical feature of these applications is the likelihood of a build-up of material on the cylinder rod due to extensive cleaning. This may have adhesive qualities and cause the seal to be pulled from the housing.  The cartridge will also protect against the ingress of dirt or moisture which can cause seal wear and leakage.

The cartridge coats the rod with food grade grease and keeps the rod seal in place, extending the service life of 454 series cylinders when used within harsh environments.
