Conforms to ISO 6020/2 (1991) For working pressures up to 210 bar
As the world leader in the design and manufacture of tie-rod cylinders, Parker Cylinder Division introduces the Parker Series HMI metric hydraulic cylinder. Parker!s HMI Series cylinders are designed to meet the requirements of ISO 6020/2 (1991), 160 Bar Compact Series. HMI Series cylinders may be used for working pressures up to 210 Bar.
Parker HMI Series cylinders are the true world standard, available all over the globe from Parker!s worldwide manufacturing facilities. Whether you or your machine are in Europe, Asia, South America, Canada, Mexico, or the United States, you can rely on the engineering expertise, manufacturing experi- ence, and commitment to quality that you!ve come to expect from the Parker Cylinder Division.
Gland seal life is maximized by manufacturing piston rods from precision ground, high tensile carbon alloy steel, hard chrome plated and polished to 0.2PAm max. Piston rods ar induction case hardened to Rockwell C54 minimum before chrome plating, resulting in a dent-resistant surface.
2Parker's 'Jewel' Gl
Continuous lubrication, and therefore longer gland life, are provided by the long bearing surface inboard of the primary seal. The Jewel gland, complete with rod seals, can easily be removed without dismantling the cylinder, so servicing is quicker ¨ and therefore more economical.
The TS-2000 primary seal has a series of sealing edges which take over successively as pressure increases, providing efficient sealing under all operating conditions. On the return stroke the serrations act as a check valve, allow- ing the oil adhering to the rod to pass back into the cylinder.The double lip wiperseal acts as a secondary seal, trapping excess lubricating film in the chamber between the wiper and lip seals. Its outer lip prevents the ingress of dirt into the cylinder, extending the life of gland and seals.
The TS-2000 is manufactured from an enhanced polyurethane, giving efficient retention of pressurized fluid and long service life.
Strict quality control standards and precision manufacture ensure that all tubes meet rigid standards of straightness, roundness and surface finish. The steel tubing is surface finished to minimize internal friction and prolong seal life.
5Cylinder Body Seals
To make sure that the cylinder body remains leaktight, even under pressure shock conditions, Parker utilizes pressureenergized body seals.
Side loading is resisted by the wide bearing surfaces of the pistons. A long thread engagement secures the piston to the piston rod and, as an added safety feature, pistons are secured by an anaerobic adhesive.
Progressive deceleration is available by using profiled cushions at the head and cap ¨ see Section C for details. The head end cushion is self aligning, while the polished cap end spear is an integral part of the piston rod.
8Floating Cushion Bushings and Sleeves
Closer tolerances ¨ and therefore more effective cushioning ¨ are permitted by the use of a floating cushion sleeve at the head end of the cylinder, and a floating cushion bushing at the cap end. A ball check valve in the head, and the floating bronze cushion bushing in the cap, provide minimum fluid restriction at the start of the return stroke. This allows full pressure to be applied over the entire area of the piston, providing full power and fast cycle times.
Available as an option at both ends, the air bleeds are recessed into the head and cap. Gland Drains
The accumulation of fluid behind the gland wiperseal of long stroke cylinders, or cylinders with constant back pressure, can be relieved by specifying the option of a gland drain. A port between the wiperseal and primary seal allows fluid to be piped back to a reservoir. By fitting a transparent tube between the port and the reservoir, fluid loss from concealed or inaccessible cylinders can be monitored to provide an early indication of the need for gland servicing. Gland drains are described in greater detail in Section C of this catalog. Piston Seals
Parker!s B style piston is a single seal design which incorporates two wear strips. This design provides smooth operation, long bearing life, and high load carrying capacity.
Servo cylinders permit fine control of acceleration, velocity and position in applications where very low friction and an absence of stick-slip are required. They may be used in conjunction with integral or external transducers. Servo cylinders combine low friction piston and gland seals with specially selected tubes and rods. For low-friction appli- cations ¨ consult factory.
To accommodate the many types of fluids and the varying temperature ranges used in industry, Parker offers a range of rod gland, piston and body seals. These are described in detail in Section C of this catalog.
ISO Cylinder Mounting Styles and Where to Find Them
The standard range of Parker Series HMI cylinders comprises 12 ISO mounting styles, to suit the majority of applications. General guidance for the selection of ISO cylinders is given below, with dimensional information about each mounting style shown on the following pages. Application- specific mounting information is shown in the mounting information section, Section C of this catalog.
Extended Tie Rods
Cylinders with TB, TC and TD mountings are suitable for straight line force transfer applications, and are particularly useful where space is limited. For compression (push) applications, cap end tie rod mountings are most appropriate; where the major load places the piston rod in tension (pull applications), head end mounting styles should be specified. Cylinders with tie rods extended at both ends may be attached to the machine member from either end, allowing the free end of the cylinder to support a bracket or switch.
Flange Mounted Cylinders
These cylinders are also suitable for use on straight line force transfer applications. Two flange mounting styles are available, offering either a head flange (JJ) or a cap flange (HH). Selection of the correct flange mounting style depends on whether the major force applied to the load will result in compression (push) or tension (pull) stresses on the piston rod. For compression-type applications, the cap mounting style is most appropriate; where the major load places the piston rod in tension, a head mounting should be specified.
Foot Mounted Cylinders
Style C, foot mounted cylinders do not absorb forces on their centerline. As a result, the application of force by the cylinder produces a moment which attempts to rotate the cylinder about its mounting bolts. It is important, therefore, that the cylinder should be firmly secured to the mounting surface and that the load should be effectively guided to avoid side loads being applied to rod gland and piston bearings. A thrust key modification may be specified to provide positive cylinder location.
Cylinders with pivot mountings, which absorb forces on their centerlines, should be used where the machine member to be moved travels in a curved path. Pivot mountings may be used for tension (pull) or compression (push) applications. Cylinders using a fixed clevis, styles BB and B, may be used if the curved path of the piston rod travel is in a single plane; for applications where the piston rod will travel in a path on either side of the true plane of motion, a spherical bearing mounting SB is recommended.
Trunnion Mounted Cylinders
These cylinders, styles D, DB and DD, are designed to absorb force on their centerlines. They are suitable for tension (pull) or compression (push) applications, and may be used where the machine member to be moved travels in a curved path in a single plane. Trunnion pins are designed for shear loads only and should be subjected to minimum bending stresses.
