Stainless Steel Cylinders

Designed for harsh environments when cleanliness is essential such as in the food and beverage sector.

Aluminium cylinders are often unable to withstand harsh conditions and, in certain applications, a more durable cylinder is required. Stainless steel air cylinders are notably more durable than aluminium cylinders and are better suited to harsh environments when cleanliness is essential, such as in the food and beverage sector.

Stainless steel is more durable than other materials and offers minimal risk of corrosion, rusting or staining. Therefore, stainless steel pneumatic actuators are often used where corrosion resistance is required. As well as the food and beverage sector, stainless steel pneumatic cylinders are also used in the medical profession and in aircraft applications.
