Round Body Air Cylinders

F Series

Cost-Optimized, Light-Duty Cylinders Deliver High Performance and Reliability.


When it comes to light-duty, space constrained applications, F Series air cylinders will satisfy all your requirements. Available in 11 bore sizes from 5⁄16 through 3 inches and with stroke lengths to 32 inches, all models in this economical series of cylinders are directly interchangeable, bore for bore and stroke for stroke.

The F Series is built tough. Featuring a 304 stainless steel air cylinder tube and 303 stainless steel, ground, polished and roller-burnished cylinder rods, these durable cylinders perform reliably in harsh conditions. A high-strength aluminum piston is standard, and full-flow ports and cross-slots on the end caps allow air passage to the entire piston and seal area for quick response and full force performance. Additional features include pre-lubrication using a special petroleum-based oil for maintenance-free operation, a rod bushing made with oil-impregnated sintered bronze for wear resistance and long life, and Buna-N U-cup rod and piston seals.
