Temperature and Gas Springs

Temperature Effect on Gas Springs & Struts

How temperature affects gas spring force: the force produced by a gas spring varies linearly by 0.19% for each degree F change from ambient (68° F). For example, a 30 degree change results in a 5.7% (30 X 0.19% = 5.7%) change in spring force.

Gas Spring & Strut Operating Temperature Range

The following chart gives the operating and survival temperature ranges for gas springs manufactured with standard, low temperature and high temperature seals. RV refers to "release valve" which is a standard option on most Customline units. The seal properties of the RV reduce the temperature ratings. If an alternative Ball valve (BV) or T-valve (TV) is used, there is no temperature range reduction.
