These are individual Cyl-Checks ® which can be mounted parallel with most 1-1/2, 2”, 2-1/2”, 3” or 4” bore Allenair Cylinders. This is achieved by means of a common front Nose Mount, a Rod Tie Bar and Mounts to secure the back end of each unit.
It must be noted that in parallel mounting, because of the opposing forces, a side-load condition is created on the rods. It is imperative that the rod of the air cylinder be securely fastened and not allowed to deviate from a straight linear motion.
The Cyl-Check ® can also be mounted independently to control other linear motions. Care should be taken to insure alignment in such cases, so that the rod of the Cyl-Check ® is not subject to side thrust.
The Tandem Cyl-Check ® Assembly is an in-line assembly of a Cyl-Check ® and a 2”, 2-1/2”, 3” or 4” bore Allenair Type “A” or “E” Double Acting Air Cylinder. The major advantage of these units is that the side-load condition between the rods is completely eliminated due to the direct in-line coupling of the Cyl-Check ® and Cylinder Rods.
