Product Detail

Series A

Quick Overview


Max Operating Pressure: 250 PSI (17 bar)
Bore Size: 1.5 to 14 in (38 to 365 mm)

When the job calls for reliable, heavy-duty performance, specify Series A. A 100,000 psi (690 MPa) yield strength chrome-plated, casehardened piston rod. A 125,000 psi (862 MPa) yield strength rod-end stud with rolled threads. 100,000 psi (690 MPa) yield strength tie rods. With construction like this, the Atlas Series A is rated for air service to 250 psi (17 bar). This is one heavy-duty air cylinder that’s really heavy duty.

They’re truly premium quality cylinders, factory pre-lubricated standard with a non-lube option for millions of maintenance-free cycles. And to make sure every cylinder is premium quality, each and every one is subject – not just batch samples – to tough inspection and performance tests. See the following pages for the inside story on all the features that make Series A the high performance, long lasting choice for all your heavy-duty air applications.

Note: Rod diameters over 2-1/2" (64 mm) will use a threaded nose gland.
