Pneumatic Guided Cylinder Slide – P5E Series

Parker Pneumatic Cylinder
The P5E series guided cylinder is designed to be a lighter weight solution for standard duty linear motion applications. Two parallel precision ground case hardened, or stainless steel, support shafts are guided by four linear bushings and incorporated into the body assembly. The bearings are prelubricated to provide millions of trouble-free cycles. Composite bushings are standard with all three shaft styles and available with oversized shafting. Optional linear ball bearings are available with stainless steel shafting only. The P5E series features a one-piece cast aluminum body with tapped and counterbored mounting holes. Standard dowel pin holes provide precision mounting for the body and tool plate. The P1D cylinder utilizes an alignment coupler which prevents the piston rod from deflecting under high loads or long strokes. Standard piston wear bands allow the piston rod assembly to “float” in the bore thereby eliminating metal-to-metal contact. The result is dramatically greater cylinder seal life especially when the support shafts deflect under load. This ensures very long cylinder life with reduced maintenance and downtime.

The P5L-R, or “”reach”” version, is designed to extend and retract a load beyond the support point into the work area. Two parallel precision ground case hardened chrome plated, or stainless steel, support shafts are guided by four linear bushings and incorporated into the body assembly. The bearings are prelubricated to provide millions of trouble-free cycles. Composite bushings with standard or oversized shafting or linear ball bearings are available.

The P5L-R Series features a machined, anodized one-piece aluminum body with counterbored through holes and T-slots for mounting flexibility. Standard dowel pin holes provide precision mounting for the body and tool plate. Standard piston wear bands allow the piston rod assembly to “”float”” in the bore thereby eliminating metal-to-metal contact. The result is dramatically greater cylinder seal life especially when the support shafts deflect under load. This ensures very long cylinder life with reduced maintenance and downtime. The P5L-R has a full range of features and options.

Option Overview:

FKM (fluoro elastomer) scraper for high chemical resistance:

For use in applications where chemicals may affect the scraper in the front end plate, an option with a scraper in FKM rubber for better chemical resistance must be used. Temperature range -10 to +80°C.

Metal Scraper Ring:

Standard scraper ring cannot be used in environments where the piston rod may be coated with resin, ice, cement, sugar crystals, dough, etc., primarily in timber handling, refrigerated / chilled transport, cement industry, chemicals and food and drinks. The build-up of hard abrasive coatings on the piston rod can damage the standard scraper ring and shorten service life. A metal scraper ring with a stainless steel carrier, brass outer scraper ring and a nitrile rubber inner scraper ring is an option for all diameters of P1F-T cylinders. This metal scraper has to be used with a hard-chromium plated piston rod. Temperature range -30 to +80°C.

High Temperature:

All seals in the high temperature version of P1F-T are developed and validated for continuous operation up to +150°C. The combination of the seal geometry and the fluoro elastomer (FKM) material ensures reliable and long service life. Certain restrictions apply when choosing sensors due to the temperature range. High temperature cylinders have no magnetic piston and cannot be fitted with sensors (the magnetic field strength in high temperatures is too low to ensure correct reliable sensor function). The key for reliable operation of pneumatic cylinders in high temperatures is the seal and grease system. It takes thorough testing to arrive at the optimum and proven technology.

  • Seals in proven fluoro elastomer (FKM) material for reliability and long service life.
  • Dedicated high temperature grease with a special formula is vital for the performance of the cylinder.
  • The combined system of seals and grease developed for P1F-T is the key for the excellent function in the temperature range -10 to +150°C.

Low Temperature:

All seals in the low temperature version of P1F-T are developed and validated for continuous operation down to -40°C. Ultrathan polyurethane (TPU-PUR) seal technology and specifically formulated grease support performance and reliability for low temperature applications. As standard supplied with a magnetic ring in the piston for proximity sensing but please note that the sensors are normally specified for full performance to -30°C only. Parker have combined the most sought after features of seal technology to provide low temperature pneumatic cylinders with high reliability, low leakage and long service life.

  • Seals engineered for low temperature in ultrathan polyurethane (TPU-PUR), formulated specifically for optimal performance in the temperature range -40 to +80°C.

ISO 15552 Pneumatic Cylinders, Dynamic Rod Lock – P1F-L Series

Parker Pneumatic Cylinder
The P1F-L in bore sizes Ø32 to 125mm is an ISO 15552 linear pneumatic cylinder for standard temperature (-20 to +80°C) with an integrated air/spring dynamic rod lock allowing the piston rod to be braked or locked in any position. Incorporating a powerful piston rod locking device, which clamps the piston rod and locks it in position. The locking device is a spring lock with an air pressure release and is mounted to the front plate of the cylinder. In the absence of an air signal pressure, full holding force is applied to the piston rod. When air is present at a certain minimum pressure the locking device is released.

The piston rod lock can be used in all material handling systems where controlled fastening or positioning is required. The piston rod lock is also suitable for use as a pressure-loss brake for cylinders with suspended loads.

The P1F-L rod lock cylinder is available for cylinder bores Ø32 to 125mm. The design provides several valuable characteristics, such as:

  • A high holding force.
  • The front plate and locking device are built into a common block for compact installation.
  • Exhaust air from the locking device can be piped away from when there are demands for a contamination free environment.

The design is easy to clean, sealed and waterproof. The exhaust air from the lock unit can be removed by replacing the filter unit with a connector and hose. This is an advantage in terms of cleaning or when environmental factors are important.

Like all P1F cylinders this series is supported by a full range of ISO mountings, sensors and is suitable for wide range of general typical industrial applications. Note that these units are not certified for use in safety systems.

General Technical Data:

  • International Standard: complies with ISO 15552 (corresponds to the withdrawn standards ISO 6431, DIN ISO 6431, VDMA 24562, NFE 49003.1 and UNI 10290) for installation dimensions except WH which smaller and not in accordance with ISO.
  • Bore Sizes : Ø32, 40, 50, 63, 80, 100 and 125 mm
  • Stroke Length : 5 to 2000mm
  • Versions : double acting / double acting with through rod
  • Cushioning : adjustable pneumatic
  • Position Sensing : “Drop in” or “Straight in” sensors can easily be installed in two recessed grooves located on one face mechanically protecting the sensor that can be located at any position along the piston stroke. Choose between electronic or reed sensors with various cable lengths and M8 knurled screws or flying lead connection.
  • Installation : a wide range of cylinder mountings in aluminum providing the same overall corrosion resistance.
  • Mounting Position : any

Operating and Environmental Data:

  • Operating Medium : for best possible service life and trouble-free operation dry, filtered compressed air to ISO 8573-1:2010 quality class 3.4.3 should be used. This specifies a dew point of +3°C for indoor operation (a lower dew point should be selected for minus temperature operation and we recommend the use of an inline dryer) and is in line with the air quality from most standard compressors with a standard filter.
  • Operating Pressure : > 4 to 10 bar
  • Brake Release Pressure : > 4 bar (Signal pressure to inlet port in the lock unit)
  • Operating Temperature : standard temperature -20 to +80°C
  • Pre-lubricated : further lubrication is normally not necessary. If additional lubrication is introduced it must be continued.
  • Corrosion Resistance : high resistance to corrosion and chemicals. Materials and surface treatment have been selected for industrial applications where solvents and detergents are frequently used.
