Miniature Shock Absorbers
MC150-V4A to MC600-V4A

Exceptionally high endurance with stainless steel corrosion protection

Self-Compensating, Stainless Steel, Rolling Diaphragm Technology
Energy capacity 175 in-lbs/Cycle to 1,200 in-lbs/Cycle
Stroke 0.50 in to 1.00 in

Brilliant in every respect: These high performance stainless steel miniature shock absorbers are based on the MC150 to MC600 product family and its proven damping technology. This means that these special absorbers offer all of the benefits of the standard units such as the ACE rolling diaphragm technology which delivers maximum service life and direct installation in a pressure chamber with up to approx. 100 psi (7 bar).

Thanks to perfectly progressive maximum energy absorption and effective weight potential, their use is augmented even further by the stainless steel outer body and a complete range of stainless accessories (AISI 316L). Self-compensating shock absorbers react to changing energy conditions, without adjustment.

These self-compensating miniature stainless steel shock absorbers are used in medical and electro-technology, as well as marine, packaging, and chemical applications. Shocks can be filled with food-grade oil for food processing applications.
