Function, Construction and Operation, Gas Springs

Function

In every action involving a lifting or lowering motion, e.g. when opening a hatch lid, there are masses in movement which
must be controlled.

If this is ignored, then the kinetic energy caused by the mass in motion can result in considerable damage. There are
several ways that ACE offers to control this motion.

a) Shock absorbers - used when no return assistance is required and no restriction of the velocity is required, control
being provided shortly before the mechanical components make contact.

b) Velocity controls - used when no return assistance is required, and control of velocity throughout the motion is
required.

c) Rotary dampers - used in light load situations requiring no return assistance and controlled velocity throughout the
motion.

d) Gas springs - used when return assistance or load support (counterbalance) is required throughout the motion.

The gas springs can be provided in a wide range of body sizes, stroke lengths and the force provided can be specified to
suit the specific application. The extension and compression velocities can also be customized on request.

Construction and Operation

ACE gas springs are maintenance free self-contained systems which are filled with high pressure
nitrogen gas to a defined pressure. They also contain a small quantity of oil to provide end position damping.

During operation, the nitrogen gas flows through the metering orifice and allows the load to be lowered in a controlled
manner. The force of the gas spring works against the weight and prevents it from accelerating and damaging mechanical
components on closure.

Upon reversal the nitrogen flows back through the piston orifice and the gas spring force assists the action, reducing the
effort required to reset the mechanism.

The opening and closing speeds can be varied by altering the size of the metering orifice.

For cushioning on the extension stroke, mount with the rod down. For cushioning on the compression stroke, mount with
the rod up.

An integral grease chamber behind the rod seals ensures lasting lubrication which can increase the life of ACE gas springs
by at least 100% compared to other products on the market.

The Ceram-Pro coated steel piston rod and powder coated precision steel body ensure excellent corrosion protection and
provide a long maintenance free working life.

The wide variety of available mounting accessories provide mounting versatility and options.

Calculations and Mounting Instructions, Gas Springs

Use the following application parameters to Example


calculate a suitable ACE gas spring:
RW W = 90 lbs (41 kg)
1. Weight of the lid or flap lbs (kg) F1 Rw = 30 in (762 mm)
LG LG = 6 in (152.4 mm)
2. Position of the center of gravity in (mm)
3. Sketch of the application layout n =2

s Center of gravity - F1 lbs (N)
LG . n Chosen gas spring:
D Pivot point GS-22-200-AA-1000
n Number of gas springs
in parallel The basic formula given enables an
approximate calculation of the required
gas spring force for one mounting
position geometry.

In order to save time we recommend that the calculation and selection of the most suitable gas spring be completed by
ACE.

With our sophisticated selection software we can quickly determine the resultant opening or closing forces throughout the
complete movement and recommend the optimum mounting points, gas spring model and nominal force.

Please fax us the completed Application Data form on page 10.

ACE gas springs are self contained, maintenance free devices and are supplied ready for installation.
The following points should be noted to ensure the longest possible working life:

F1 = Nominal Force at 680 F (200 C) (this figure is normally


used when specifying gas springs)
F1 to F2 = Force on extension stroke
F3 to F4 = Force on compression stroke

*The progression (slope of the force line in the characteristic diagram above) is due to the reduction of the internal gas
volume as the piston rod moves from its initial position to its fully stroked position. The approximate progression values
given above for standard springs can be altered upon request.

Effect of temperature: The nominal F1 force figure is given at 680 F (200 C).

An increase in temperature of 180 F or 100 C will result in approximately a 3.4% increase in the force.

General extension force tolerance for fixed force gas springs is +40N/-20N.
General extension force tolerance for adjustable gas springs is plus or minus 5 - 7%.
Note: Initial breakaway force may be higher if units are stored for a long period without use.

Additional Gas Spring Available Options


1. Lockable gas springs: GBF & GBS 22, 28 & 40
2. Gas springs (push type): GS-40
3. Gas springs (pull type): GZ-19, GZ-28 (GZ models are a special order)
Note: GS and GZ gas springs are available as fixed force options with optional lengths.
