LOADING CYLINDER ASSEMBLY

All frames have a single acting up stroking ram. The diameter of the piston is designed to work with the load capacity.

The maximum ram movement is 50 mm. The pressure transducer is used for load measurements.  There is a low friction coaxial PTFE seal between the cylinder and the piston fitted to the cylinder.
