The Gas Shock Absorber Cylinder is a dampers or shocks, which are devices that can restrict motion through viscous friction. They absorb energy and dissipate it in the form of heat. This special purpose dampers are designed to use in medical industry, which use a special internal fluids for use in sensitive and sterile areas. This can also operate in imaging and diagnostic equipment. It can also be deployed for slam prevention and speed control in the lowering of a hospital bed side rail system or to slow the opening of a maintenance cover etc., Hydraulic dampers are usually specified by their stroke and constant of proportionality. This particular damper has stroke capacity up to 52 mm and maximum force resistance is 20 lbs.
Gas shock absorbers solve the problem of operation by air and oil inside the piston, mixing oil with gas to create an emulsion capable of being compressed.
