Asco Numatics 441 Short Stroke Compact Cylinders

The ASCO 441 series is a range of short-stroke cylinders with pressed end caps, ATEX approval, and the ability to handle unlubricated air. Manufactured from an extruded light alloy body design the 441 series is suitable for operating pressures up to 10 Bar with ambient temperatures ranging from -20°C to +70°C for the standard range. Additional high temperature applications are accommodated with the HTP adder to 120°C.

Key Features

Key features and benefits of the Asco Numatics 441 Short Stroke Compact Cylinders

Key Features

The 441 series is ready to accept its air supply with or without lubrication, eliminating the need for a lubricator unit in some applications.

Key Features

A 441 cylinder can be configured to include such features as an anti-rotation device, high-temp seals, or a stainless steel rod end.

Key Features

The 441 series is designed for fitting into tight spaces, with the integration of the end caps into the main body making this range smaller than an ISO cylinder.

Frequently Asked Questions

A pneumatic cylinder is a mechanical device that uses compressed air acting on a piston within a sealed cylinder to produce a force in a reciprocating linear motion. This tool is widely used in various industrial applications where quick, forceful motion is required.
Pneumatic cylinders work by converting the energy of compressed air into mechanical energy. Air is pumped into the cylinder, which moves the piston forward or backward. This movement can then be used to operate machinery, lift loads, or move items.
There are primarily two types of pneumatic cylinders: single-acting and double-acting. Single-acting cylinders use air pressure to move the piston in one direction and a spring to return it to its original position. Double-acting cylinders use air pressure for movements in both directions.
Pneumatic cylinders offer numerous benefits, including simplicity, low maintenance, durability, and cost-effectiveness. They are safe to use in hazardous environments and provide a clean operation without the risk of chemical contamination.
Yes, pneumatic cylinders can be equipped with various sensors and regulators that allow for precise control over speed, position, and force, making them suitable for applications requiring exact movements.
Performance can be affected by several factors, including air quality and pressure, cylinder size, load, speed of operation, and environmental conditions such as temperature and humidity.
Selecting the right cylinder involves considering the stroke length, load requirements, operating pressure, and the environment in which it will be used. Consulting with a specialist or a manufacturer can also help tailor the selection to your specific needs.
Regular maintenance includes checking and replacing worn seals, ensuring that air filters are clean to avoid contamination, and verifying that all connections are secure. It's also crucial to monitor the air quality and pressure to maintain optimal performance.
While pneumatic systems are not as energy-efficient as some electric-driven alternatives, they are highly effective in specific scenarios where high speed and force are required. Improvements in system design, such as proper sizing and reducing leaks, can enhance their energy efficiency.
Pneumatic cylinders are typically made from materials such as steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. The choice depends on the application's specific needs, including the required strength, weight, and resistance to environmental factors.
