ISO15552 pneumatic cylinders

ISO15552 pneumatic cylinders

ISO15552 pneumatic cylinders comply with the most common standard for elements of this type, so that their replacement with a new one is possible without the need to rebuild the system or change the mounting methods. This standard may include a wide group of elements with different piston diameters, stroke or sealing method. Check what the ISO15552 standard is, which cylinders are compatible with it and what other types of cylinders you can find in our offer.

ISO 15552 cylinder - standard

Contemporary pneumatic actuators are among those working elements of various devices and installations that perform key work and are widely used in many industries. Therefore, it is necessary to standardize their dimensions, parameters and principles of operation so that the replacement of elements is possible without the need to modify the assembly system or entire machines in the absence of the availability of the original manufacturer's actuators.

The International Organization for Standardization , the International Organization for Standardization, that is ISO, creates standards in many areas, so that the production processes, components of devices and the way they operate can be internationally standardized, regardless of location. It is a non-governmental organization associating national standardization organizations.

The ISO15552 standard applies to pneumatic cylinders with detachable fittings It replaced ISO 6431: 1992 in 2004, extending it to profile sleeve cylinders with slots for piston position sensors, and was then updated in 2018. ISO 15552: 2018 establishes a metric series of basic, mounting and accessory dimensions required for the interchangeability of single or double rod pneumatic cylinders.

They may be equipped with magnetic sensors, but this is not essential. The specification applies to pneumatic cylinders with a diameter of 32 mm to 320 mm for a maximum rated pressure of 1,000 kPa, or 10 bar. The ISO15552 standardization refers to a number of other documents standardizing many necessary elements of pneumatic systems.

The ISO15552 standard ensures full interchangeability of the actuator with other actuators with appropriate properties compliant with the same standard. Therefore, many manufacturers use ISO15552 in the production of pneumatic actuators.

Standardization with ISO15552 pneumatic actuators facilitates the use and service of installations using these components. It concerns the overall dimensions of the actuator itself, fastening elements and accessories.

The ISO15552 pneumatic cylinder is one of the most widely used compressed air components. It is part of numerous applications in various industries, in the construction of devices and machines. It should be remembered that the ISO 15552 actuator can come in various variants, therefore, in addition to compliance with the standard, it is crucial to ensure appropriate operational parameters.

Types of pneumatic cylinders according to ISO 15552

Detailed specification of actuators meeting the ISO15552 standard is specified in the document of the standardization organization.

Our offer includes ISO15552 pneumatic cylinders from the CH series. The product data sheet and the precise 3D model of the actuator can be downloaded from the product page in the online store. Standard sizes and parameters of pneumatic actuators from this series are available even within 24 hours of placing the order.

However, the ISO15552 pneumatic cylinder with a diameter of 32-320 mm and working pressure up to 10 bar is available in numerous variants. They allow the actuator to be adapted to the specificity of the application, and made to order.

Double-acting ISO15552 pneumatic cylinders with adjustable pneumatic cushioning allow for precise adaptation to the current needs of the device or installation with an actuator. Likewise , pneumatic cylinders with a traveling piston rod or built-in anti-rotation device may be necessary in specific implementations. The ISO 15552 cylinder can also be a tandem twin piston design.

Selected pneumatic actuators on request can be made of 304 or 316 stainless steel, which allows for obtaining the FDA certificate and approval for operation in the food and pharmaceutical industries. The offer of ISO15552 actuators also applies to models for potentially explosive areas, covered by the ATEX 2014/34 / EU, II 2 GD c T4 certificate. Manufacturing actuators according to specific specific requirements may take longer than delivering standard products.

Standard seals used in pneumatic cylinders of the CH series, compliant with the ISO 15552 standard, are made of polyurethane, marked as PU, and do not require lubrication. They are generally used, they can operate in the temperature range from -20 ° C to + 80 ° C. Alternative for them are FKM - Viton seals, used in working conditions with temperatures that can reach above 80 ° C, up to 150 ° C.

They can be equipped with ISO15552 pneumatic actuators with diameters of 32-320 mm. The FKM-VITON seal with a metal insert is used for the most severe operating conditions, for example with the risk of heavy soiling. In our offer it is possible in actuators with diameters between 40 mm and 250 mm.

For actuators from 32 mm to 125 mm, the P5600 PU seal, FDA certified, can also be used for use in the pharmaceutical and food industries. ISO15552 pneumatic cylinders operating in more severe conditions, with the risk of severe contamination of the piston rod, may be fitted with an NBR seal with a TP-E insert. A specially designed liner is designed to separate the inner lips and wick away any potential build-up of debris. This seal can be used with cylinders from 32 mm to 320 mm in diameter.

You can place an order for the ISO15552 pneumatic cylinder online, specifying the necessary product parameters. The intuitive parameter configurator on the website allows you to define your needs.

Additionally, you can use the online force calculator to help you determine the theoretical push and pull force for a given piston diameter in millimeters and pressure in bars. However, it is worth remembering that the actual force of the actuator on the piston rod depends on changes in the pressure of the chambers and friction in the sealants. Usually it is up to 80% of the theoretical force.

The ISO15552 pneumatic cylinder with standard design works well in most implementations, and its implementation is extremely fast. Our company also produces ISO15552 pneumatic actuators on a special order, including other types of execution mentioned above - materials, sealing, specification and certification.

In addition to the most popular ISO15552 pneumatic cylinders, there are other types of cylinders commonly used in many applications. The ISO15552 pneumatic cylinder is not the only industrial solution available.

In heavy industry, a single-acting actuator is frequently used, which is simple in construction, relatively cheap in operation and maintenance. It works in one direction. Equally widely used can be a double-acting pneumatic cylinder having two chambers and able to perform a working movement in both directions.

Our offer also includes other types of pneumatic cylinders that meet the prescribed standards. These are among others:

  • CM round cylinders in accordance with ISO6432, including single-acting, double-acting, with shock absorption,

You can find a full range of necessary elements, including pneumatic installations and control valves, in our Pneumatig offer.

How to choose an ISO 15552 actuator? - technical specifications

ISO15552 pneumatic actuators are one of the most commonly used types of actuators due to their wide range of possible performance parameters. By definition , a pneumatic actuator as an actuator is designed to convert the energy of compressed air into mechanical energy. The ISO 15552 cylinder should have specific values:

  1. Piston diameter, given in millimeters, from 32 mm to 320 mm to choose from.

  2. The stroke of the actuator, also defined in millimeters, with values usually between 3 and 1000 mm.

  3. Sealing type - standard PU plastic - polyurethane, or NBR, Viton, Viton with metal.

However, the range of actuators compatible with ISO15552 is much wider, they come in many variants. Thanks to this and the possibility of individual production of the product on request, it is possible to use ISO15552 actuators in specific industries, for example, food, pharmaceutical or in high temperatures or severe conditions.
