Midlands Pneumatics Ltd

Has anyone come across Midlands Pneumatics Ltd of Wolverhampton -
google draws a blank ? Probably gone out of business - taken over,
fled to China etc. My furnace tilting cylinders (3" bore 12" stroke
double acting 1" rod) needs new rod seals. I'd hoped that they were
standard 'o' rings but alas no they are a rubber cylindrical moulding.
Probably doesn't help that the rods have up to 4 thou wear and
scratches so I'll probably have to either make new or get replacement
cylinders
(BTW they're not badge engineered as the screw on brass endcaps have
the name cast into them)

Andrew,most cylinder seals can be bought from other sources.Look for websites for Polypack,Dowty,Hallite and Sealcut.Chromed bar for new rods can be bought from Ramparts.BTW,JS`s idea for control of the rams is a good one,We have done a lot of similar applications.If you`re not happy using oil,use soluble or antifreeze solution.

We used to use them in the late 80s to make hoists as they ha
cushioning built in to give a soft stop at the end of the stroke Havent seen them for a long while as i left that industry. It should b possible to get the seals else where as there are quite a few specialis seal manufacturers.
