New Gas Spring Fights Corrosion with Stainless Steel
Bristol, PA - The GSSX, the new stainless steel-shafted gas spring from Service Plus Distributors (SPD) in Bristol, PA, offers extensive corrosion resistance and longer service life. The GSSX gas spring is ideal for marine applications where salt water causes premature failure of other gas springs. The GSSX is also well suited for use on vehicles and equipment that operate off-road or under adverse conditions, as well as in enclosures and equipment used in corrosive environments. Shaft corrosion permits contaminants to work their way inside a gas spring's tube, breaking down seals and causing the gas spring to fail. The GSSX's stainless steel shaft resists corrosion. Additional features include a lip seal inside the spring's tube that offers superior performance, as well as high- strength composite endfittings to increase the unit's corrosion-resistance. The GSSX gas spring is available in a number of shaft, tube and stroke dimensions, as well as a wide variety of P1 forces. Most standard sizes are stocked.
