Pneumo hydraulic cylinder
max. 8 bar, ISO 15552
acts as an actuator and an oleo-dynamic circuit that acts as a brake.
The dimensions of the pneumatic cylinder (bore 63) comply with ISO 15552.
The hydraulic circuit is comprised of a brake fluid tank and one or two flow
regulation pins. It can mount one or more (slow-fast) SKIP or STOP valves
that are normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC), for the piston rod
extension and retraction.
The basic feature of this device is that the driving force and the braking
force are coaxial, so they do not generate undesired bending moments
on the piston rod and the external structures connected to it. Due to its
conception, this brake is particularly compact and has reduced dimensions
compared to BRK external hydraulic brakes.
After a certain operating time, the brake fluid tank must be topped up
with oil. This needs doing when the oil level reaches the minimum mark
on the rod. With the piston rod right out, the minimum level mark must
not project less than 8-10 mm from the cap.
Always use Comlube DEXRON ATF hydraulic oil or another compatible
product. During the first operating cycles, excess oil is expelled through
a hole in the tank.
