Help with Shock Absorbers, Linear Dampers, and Dashpots specifications:

Type
   Shock Absorber / Damper Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Elastomeric       Synthetic elastomer or rubber is used to absorb shock or impact. 
   Linear Damper       Linear dampers provide controlled closing motion and speed for elements, such as lids and doors, that open and close. 
   Linear Dashpot       Linear dashpots are damping devices that resist linear motion via a viscous friction, commonly in conjunction with a spring. 
   Rotary Dashpot       Rotary dashpots are damping devices that resist rotary motion via a viscous friction, commonly in conjunction with a spring. 
   Shock Absorber       Shock absorbers are mechanical devices that absorb and dissipate kinetic energy. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Dampening Method       
   Your choices are...         
   Air       Atmospheric air dampens and absorbs shock via controlled flow though an orifice in the sliding piston. Typically, air is used in instrumentation-grade dashpots. 
   Gas       Gas other than air is used to absorb shock. Nitrogen is a common example. 
   Other       Other unlisted or specialized dampening methods. 
   Hydraulic       Hydraulic liquid is used to absorb shock, and to and dampen or slow motion. 
   Mechanical       A spring or other mechanical means is used to absorb or dampen shock, or to slow motion. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Absorption / Damping Action       
   Your choices are...         
   Compression       Shock absorption or dampening occurs in the compression direction. 
   Extension       Shock absorption or dampening occurs in the extension direction. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Stroke & Capacity
   Absorber Stroke       The absorber stroke or spring stroke is the difference between the fully-extended and fully-compressed positions. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Compressed Length       The compressed length is the minimum length of the shock (compressed position). 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Extended Length       The extended length is the maximum length of the shock (extended position). 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Maximum Force (P1)       The maximum force is sometimes referred to as the P1 force. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Energy per Cycle       The total energy per cycle indicates the energy capacity or how much energy is absorbed by the shock absorber during one cycle. Energy capacity and reaction or stopping force are used to size shock absorbers, dashpots, and springs. Compared to dashpots, shock absorbers can absorb considerably more energy with shorter stopping times or higher cycle times. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Maximum Cycles per Minute       Maximum cycles per minute is the rated frequency of the compression / extension cycles. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value greater than or equal to the specified value.
   Cylinder Diameter or Maximum Width       The desired diameter of the housing cylinder. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Rod Diameter       The desired diameter of the extending rod. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Mounting
   Mounting       
   Your choices are...         
   Ball and Socket       The spherical bearing has a bore that allows for multi-axis rotation. 
   Rod End       The ball and socket (spherical bearing) has an integral stud.  
   Clevis       A clevis pin or mating fork is used for mounting. 
   Eyelet       Round holes at the ends of the absorber are used for mounting. 
   Tapered End       The cylinder side has a tapered end for a snug fit into a mounting hole. 
   Threaded       The ends or the body has standard threads for mounting or accessory attachment. 
   Bumper / Rod End Unattached       The rod is not attached to the load. Rather, it has a bumper on its end to engage the moving load.  
   Other       Other unlisted, proprietary, or specialized mounting styles. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Body Material       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       Aluminum is a bluish, silver-white, malleable, ductile, light trivalent metallic element with good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity, and resistance to oxidation. 
   Stainless Steel       Stainless steel is chemical resistant, corrosion resistant, and can have relatively high pressure ratings. 
   Steel       Steel is a commercial iron that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7 percent as an essential alloying constituent. It is malleable under suitable conditions and is distinguished from cast iron by its malleability and lower carbon content. 
   Thermoplastic       Thermoplastics can be repeatedly softened by heat and then hardened, or set by cooling, which allows parts to be injection-molded or thermoformed and scrap to be reprocessed. 
   Other       Other, unlisted, or specialty materials. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Rod Treatment       
   Your choices are...         
   Chrome       The rod is chrome-plated to provide corrosion resistance and increase surface hardness. 
   Nitride       The road is coated with a nitride. The nitriding process introduces nitrogen to the rod's surface and provides case-hardening. Rods that are treated with a black nitride will be black in color. 
   Other       Other, unlisted, or specialty rod treatments. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Features       
   Your choices are...         
   Adjustable       The user can fine-tune the desired damping, either continuously or at discrete settings. 
   Self Compensating       Self-compensating shock absorbers have specially designed orifice profiles that allow for changing loads and conditions.  Manual adjustment is not required. 
   Reducible       With this adjustment style for gas shocks, the gas is let out to permanently reduce force capacity. 
   Locking       The position can be locked at the ends or in the middle of the stroke. 
   Valve       For fluid absorbers, a valve or port is used to increase or decrease fluid volume or pressure. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
