Sea Environment

Description

For oil plateforms, the company provides stabilized cylinders to counteract the sea swell.
For the install of submarine pipelines, we have realized cylinders to maneuver the docs.

Characteristics

Schoopage on body
Reinforced wiper and seals
Stainless steel rod coated (ceramic, nickel-chrome)

Field of activity

Offshore, port, submarines, boating ...

Machines ConstructionEnergyCivil Engineering or construction

River Environment

Description 

On the water dams, the gate cylinders are often installed at a submerged level. In the submerged condition, the actuator mountings deteriorate rapidly and will require strict monitoring.

Caractéristiques

Double seals
Anti-fouling paint

Field of activity

water dams, under water robots, test bench ...

Extreme temperatures

High temperatures

Description

To manufacture special materials, such as ceramic bricks for aerospace, the company has made cylinders taking the materials into an oven at 830°C. These cylinders are cooled by liquid nitrogen circulation

Features

INOX reinforced PTFE seals
Refractory steel
Non-flammable fluid

Field of activity

Aerospace, iron and steel cast ...

Low temperatures

Description

Most of the hydroelectric dams are located at high altitudes and therefore in cold areas.
Level valves are controlled by hydraulic cylinders. These cylinders are made of steels with greater malleability than common steels, guaranteeing elasticity at temperatures below -20°C.

Features

Adapted hydraulic oil
Optimal sealing
Low temperature resistance
