The hydraulic industrial shock absorber of the C-series (COMPENSER®) is the ideal hydraulic buffer for storage and retrieval machines or smaller conveyor systems, crane systems, test stands etc. in light to medium mechanical engineering. Due to its short design, this hydraulic buffer (COMPENSER®) can be used in a spacesaving manner as limitation of the end position (as emergency end stop) in industrial applications. In addition, the low reset force allow operational pushin cycles at creep speed. Design & Function: The piston rod 2 enters the metering tube 3. The damping medium flows from the pressure chamber 6 through the throttle orifices 4 of the metering tube 3 into the volume balance chamber 5. The nitrogen gas between the outer tube 7 and the metering tube 3 is compressed and stores the energy required for the reset of the piston rod. When the piston rod 2 returns to the initial position, the damping medium flows back into the pressure chamber 6.
