Once a gas spring has left the IGS factory, the only way to adjust its force is by removing some of the nitrogen gas contained inside the tube. Therefore the only possible adjustment will always lead to a less powerful gas spring. On first orders and prototypes, we always recommend that you...

Gas Spring force is normally designated as P1 which is the force measured .2" (5 mm) from full extension in the extending direction. Force is a function of the charge pressure in the cylinder acting on the cross section of the rod. The smaller the diameter of the rod the lower the force at the same...

The design of a gas spring can be modified to support applications requiring lower and higher K factors. Low K factors where the extended and compressed forces are almost equal are desirable on straight vertical lifts and on vertical access panels that are hinged on the top. High K factors...

Gas springs are high friction devices. Users will notice a spike in the force required to first compress a gas spring compared to the rated P1 force of the spring. If tested on a common weight scale, this leads some users to conclude the spring is set at an incorrect force. Sometimes referred...

The procedure to adjust the force on a gas spring with a shrader release valve (RV) is similar to a T-Valve (TV). However, because the valve is more fragile you can only release gas using the tool provided or the stud at the end of the gas spring. This valve is being discontinued in favour...

The IGS Side Release Valve can be found on the Euroline range of gas springs. It can also be found on custom made gas springs where a SRV was specified. The advantage of this type of release is that the force can be released after the gas spring has been fitted on the application. It makes...

All gas springs contain a small amount of oil to lubricate the main seal and rod and provide end of stroke damping (see damping). If standard gas springs are operated and mounted in a rod up orientation, fluid cannot reach the main seal or rod which leads to excessive seal wear and reduced life...

Show More

Damping is achieved regulating the flow of gas and/or fluid through the valved orificing of the gas damper piston. Commonly used compression gas springs when mounted in a rod down orientation achieve maximum damping when the piston reaches the oil near the point of full extension. This is shown...

As governed by Boyle's Law, P2 force is always greater than P1 force. During spring compression, the volume of rod introduced into the cylinder displaces an equal volume of gas, increasing the pressure in the cylinder and therefore the force of the spring. IGS standard springs are manufactured...

All IGS springs, with the exception of the micro gas springs, are available with release valves (RV). RV gas springs are fitted with an internal aerospace quality valve located under the removable stud on the cylinder end of the spring. These springs are generally supplied at a higher force than...
