Gas Spring Dampers
Gas dampers provide speed and motion control using hydraulic oil damping in either extension, compression, or both directions instead of providing force with nitrogen gas. Their look and outer design is identical to gas springs, so the intended function and purpose is what determines when a damper is needed instead of a gas spring.
The types of applications that gas dampers are most commonly used in are lids, doors, covers, or any other object that is needed to move more slowly in a certain direction. For example, dampers can be deployed for slam prevention and speed control in the lowering of a hospital bed side rail system or to slow the opening of a maintenance cover on an ATM, electronic gaming machine, or other electronic consoles.
