D2-Series NFPA Tie Rods

January 27, 2021 – The NITRA® pneumatic product line now includes the D2-Series double-acting, NFPA heavy-duty tie rod air cylinders ideal for use where abusive conditions exist.

These pneumatic air cylinders have a 250 psi operating pressure and are interchangeable with other popular brands. New models are available with and without adjustable cushions to provide end-of-stroke deceleration at both ends.

All D2-Series cylinders are constructed with high-quality aluminum components and a magnetic piston fitted with a PTFE wear band; all cylinders have a magnetic piston and can be used along with solid-state or reed switches for rod position sensing.

The series includes bore sizes from 1-1/2 inch to four inches and stroke lengths from one inch to 32 inches to meet a broad range of applications. Models feature flange, rear clevis and rear pivot, side, base and rod clevis mounting options.

Starting at $125.00, these cylinders are proudly made in the USA and have a 2-year warranty.
