Did you know Higginson is one of the only manufacturers in Canada of 100% stainless steel NFPA Cylinders?
NFPA standard cylinders, also commonly referred to as JIC (Joint Industry Council) cylinders, are constructed with square end caps and held together with four tie rods. NFPA cylinder manufacturers use the common standard mounting dimension for each of the various mounting styles, which means that the user has the flexibility to obtain an NFPA standard cylinder anywhere in the world. Higginson also offers all NFPA mounts in addition to custom mounts, which we proudly manufacture in one of the industry's quickest lead times and are designed for long life with features that will benefit your specific application.
Typical pneumatic cylinders can operate in systems of up to 250 psi, while hydraulic cylinder pressure ratings depend on the bore and rod combination selected but can be rated up to 5000 psi system pressure. Prior to applying a cylinder in a system, many pieces of information need to be gathered. Get in touch with one of our specialists here at Higginson, who can help you in defining the specifics of your application and in determining which cylinder best suits your design.
