New P5T2 Series Short-Stroke Thruster

Description

The Actuator Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation (NYSE:PH) introduces the new P5T2 Short-Stroke Thruster. The P5T2 Series features short-stroke, heavy-duty performance in a smaller footprint than conventional thrusters that use external cylinders.

Parker's innovative design of the P5T2 addresses requirements in the packaging, conveyor and assembly markets where available space is limited and loads are typically substantial. The P5T2 Series is ideal for handling frequent stops on conveyor equipment, tamping and pressing on packaging machinery, as well as the unloading/loading and clamping processes on assembly machinery.

The P5T2 Series is available in 12, 16, 20, 25, 32, 40, 50, 63, 80, and 100mm bore sizes with strokes up to 200mm. Maximum operating pressure is 1MPa (10 bar/145 psi). Primary features of the series include standard through-hole mounting on all sizes and available rear mounting - when special ordered - on all sizes, ensuring drop-in capabilities for a variety of installations. Top porting is standard, but rear and side porting are available on all sizes as well. A true rod-lock mechanism, which stops the unit in current position upon loss of air pressure, is available on 32mm through 100mm bore sizes.

Construction of the P5T2 thruster features an aluminum body and end caps; steel tool plate, support rods, and rod bolts; and a stainless steel piston rod. Standard nitrile seals operate at temperatures between -18° to 74°C (0° to 165°F). Fluorocarbon seals are available for high-temperature applications and have an operating range of -18° to 121°C (0° to 250°F).

A PTFE impregnated composite bushing is standard on all P5T2 models and provides high load carrying capabilities with excellent resistance to shock loading. Optional linear ball bearings provide precision operation with very low friction and wear.
