Adjustment Instructions Valve, Filling Kit

Adjustment Instructions Valve

GS GZ Adjustment Instruction
1. Hold gas spring piston rod down.
2. Remove any fitting attached to the body end of the gas spring
(GZ-19 to GZ-40 version the piston rod).
3. Insert adjuster knob on thread end on the cylinder body (on GZ-19
to GZ-40 version thread end on the piston rod). When resistance is
felt, proceed slowly and with caution. This opens the valve and you
can hear the nitrogen escaping and reducing pressure. Turn back the
adjusting knob immediately, to avoid too much nitrogen being
discharged.
4. After adjustment, remove the adjuster knob, mount the end fittings
and test the gas spring in your application. If necessary repeat the
procedure.
If you use 2 gas springs in parallel, both gas springs should have the
same force to avoid bending forces or side load on the application. If
necessary return to ACE to refill both gas springs to the same (average)
force. If too much nitrogen is discharged, the units can be returned to
ACE for re-gassing.

Gas Spring Refilling Kit

The ACE gas spring refilling kit offers you the opportunity to fill gas
springs on location or adapt them individually. The refilling kit is equipped
with all the parts you need to fill gas springs. Very precise filling of the
gas springs is possible using the digital manometer. The table for
determining the filling pressure of the gas springs is included with the
case. The only thing missing from the delivery is the nitrogen.

The refilling kit contains all filling bells and adjuster knobs for the current
ACE gas spring range.

Ordering name: Complete gas spring refilling kit

“Independence and

Issue 6.2011 Specifications subject to change

The refilling kit suits 200 bar nitrogen bottles with a thread of
W24,32x1/14" (German standard). Other connections are available
upon request.

Gas springs filled with the refilling kit must be measured on a calibrated
measurement system by ACE for repeat production.

Calculation and Safety Instructions

Calculation

To obtain the ideal selection to give the


optimum operation for a gas spring it is
important to identify the following points:
• gas spring size
• required gas spring stroke
• mounting points on flap and frame
• extended length of the gas spring
• required extension force
• hand forces throughout the complete
movement on the flap

With our free calculation service you can


eliminate the time-consuming calculation and
send us your details by fax or e-mail. Just
complete the information shown on the calcu-
lation formulae page number 165. Please
attach a sketch of your application (a simple
hand sketch is sufficient) in side view. Our
application engineers will determine the
optimum gas springs and mounting points and
calculate the ideal situation to satisfy your
requirements.
You will receive a quotation showing the opening and closing forces and “Calculation offer

opening a car tailgate, the nitrogen gas flows through the metering ori-
fice in the piston to provide a controlled opening speed and the oil zone
provides damping at the fully open position to avoid impact damage.
The gas spring should be mounted “rod down” for this damping to be

Industrial Gas Springs
Application Examples

ACE industrial gas springs make opening and closing doors


of rescue helicopters easier.
The maintenance-free, sealed systems are installed in the access
doors of helicopters of the type EC 135. There, they allow the crew
to enter or exit the helicopter quickly, thus contributing to en-
hanced safety.
The GS-19-300-CC gas springs provide a defined retraction
speed and secure engagement of the door lock. The integrated
end position damper allows gentle closing of the door and saves
wear and tear on the valuable, lightweight material.

Doors open and close safely

Industrial gas springs: For safe entry and exit

ACE industrial gas springs prevent injuries during maintenance


work on harvesting machines.
The blades of corn pickers are arranged under plastic hoods, which
assure proper material flow within the machine. For maintenance
purposes, the hoods, weighing about 7 kg, must be lifted up. To
protect maintenance personnel from injury by falling hoods, they
are kept in the open position by industrial gas springs of the type
GS-22-250-DD.
Another advantage they offer is their stability under rough
operating conditions due to their wear-resistant coating on the
piston rod and the coated housing.

Traction Gas Springs GZ-15 to GZ-40 (Pull Type)

Industrial traction gas springs are main-


tenance-free and ready to install. They are
available ex-stock with body diameters from
15 mm to 40 mm and forces from 30 N to 5000
N with valve. ACE traction gas springs offer
a long service life due to the hard-chromed
piston rod and integral sliding bearing.
They can be installed in any position. The
traction force can be subsequently adjusted by
means of the valve. The comprehensive range
of fitting parts ensures easy installation and
makes the traction gas springs universal in Filled with
use. They supply the muscle force and enable High Pressure
the controlled raising and lowering of covers, Nitrogen Gas
hoods, flaps etc. With the free ACE calculation
service, the traction gas springs are designed
Piston with Seals
with mounting points to fit the individual
application, and can be delivered ex-stock as
express deliveries within 24 hours.

Function: ACE industrial traction gas springs are maintenance-free,


closed systems, which are filled with pressurised nitrogen gas.
Compared to the push type, ACE traction gas springs work in the reverse
way. The piston rod is retracted by
the gas pressure in the cylinder.
The surface of the piston ring be-
tween the piston rod and the inner
tube determines the force of the
gas spring. Traction gas springs are
188 always mounted with the stroke
fully compressed.
Operating fluid: Nitrogen gas
Mounting: In any position
Operating temperature range:
-20 °C to 80 °C
On request: Special force curves,
special lengths, alternative seals and
188 end fittings.
