Traction Gas Spring, also known as tension gas spring, pulling gas spring, tension gas struts, pulling tension gas struts, and pull gas struts, is an important component in modern industrial machinery. It is used to absorb and store the energy from motion and vibration, enabling it to suspend and balance components such as force-balanced doors, automated machine guards, and agricultural machinery.
Traction gas springs work by trapping a mix of compressed nitrogen and hydrogen gas under high pressure, inside a cylindrical tube. As the gas expands, it creates a powerful downward force, making the spring both compact and reliable. The force from the spring can be added to with a mechanical strut or lever, and then quickly released by turning a release valve.
Traction Gas Springs are widely used in industrial applications in order to provide energy-efficient, reliable and durable solutions. The springs are used for counterbalancing doors, using as tension lug support, and stabilizing agricultural machines, to name a few.
The Traction Gas Spring is also used in various applications in the automotive industry, for example in hoods, hatches, and lids. The power of the spring can be adjusted to fit the requirements of the specific job, by simply turning the release valve.
