Standard Series CV cylinders are available in six bore sizes from 32 to 100 mm and with standard stroke lengths from 15 to 1,000 mm to fit a range of applications. Shock pads are standard on all sizes and eliminate metal-to-metal contact. Optional Rodlock(TM) holds a static piston rod in place at any point of stroke desired. This feature is targeted for use in circumstances where rod drift is unacceptable due to system leakage, line rupture, or power loss.
