The Centaur Cylinder Offers Advantages Compared to Other Round Cylinders

Air Cylinders

In our lubrication-free Round Body Centaur Cylinders, Teflon seals provide low breakaway force. These cylinders, designed to match tie-rod performance, serve a range of unique mobile equipment, animatronix and clean room applications.

Since Centaur cylinders are not permanently crimped like most other round cylinders, they can be disassembled for maintenance. These cost effective cylinders typically cost 45% less than standard models over the full range of sizes – including 1-1/8" to 3" bore sizes.

Bumpers are built into each cylinder head to eliminate the metallic “clank” that occurs at stroke completion and reduce wear. The flush bottom cylinder mounts directly to a base plate and needs no mounting brackets or other hardware.
