Utilizing a special compact design, these shock absorbers smoothly and safely decelerate large energy capacity loads up to 8 million in-lbs. per cycle. These models incorporate an internal, air charged bladder accumulator, replacing mechanical return springs, providing a shorter overall length and reduced weight. The zinc-plated external components provide enhanced corrosion protection, while epoxy painting and special rod materials are available for use in highly corrosive environments. All of Enidine’s heavy duty hydraulic shock absorbers are engineered to meet OSHA, AISE, CMMA and other safety specifications such as DIN and FEM.

ITT Enidine Inc.’s heavy duty industrial shock absorbers are offered with a wide variety of optional configurations, including bellows, clevis mounts and safety cables. Standard adjustable or custom-orificed non-adjustable models are also available as well as optional fluids and seal packages to expand standard operating temperature range from (15º F to 140º F) to (-40º F to 210º F). For easy maintenance, all sizes of ITT Enidine Inc.’s heavy duty hydraulic shock absorbers are fully field-repairable. These products also offer piston rod extension sensor systems for reuse safety requirements.
