The COMPENSER® of the DC-series is an ideal hydraulic shock reducing element especially for the application field of storage technology (storage and retrieval machines). As a double-acting buffer, this industrial shock absorber can be used in a space-saving manner due to its design and can be actuated alternately from both sides. The constructive design and function corresponds to the C-Type. Furthermore, due to its low reset force, it can easily be pressed in at creep speed during operation. Optional extras include PU elastic caps as impact cap inserts to minimise noise and an electronic monitoring of the extending movement of the piston rod (as inductive or magnetic sensor). If only a slightly increasing reset force of the piston rod over the entire stroke is required, an additional external accumulator can be fitted to the cylinder to increase the gas volume of the gas spring. Hence the restoring force decreases in retracted state. Maintenance and simple repairs can be carried out on-site by the customer’s own staff due to the modular design of this damper.
