What is a nitrogen gas spring?

KALLER gas springs uses compressed nitrogen gas, contained in a cylinder and compressed by a piston rod, to exert a force. The benefits of gas springs, compared to typical mechanical springs, are: ability to create higher force in less space. immediate presence of force when stroked.

How do you calculate gas springs?

FORCE = (W x Y) / (Z x N) Y = Distance from fixed mounting point to center of the object (mm). Z = Distance from hinge point to moving mounting point (mm). N = Number of springs. If you do not have all of the necessary information to use the above formula, you can use our estimated force calculation.

How do you calculate gas spring placement?

The force required to hold the lid open (F1) can be calculated using the formula: Gas Spring Force (F1) = Mass of lid x Centre of Gravity / Radius of Force x Number of Springs. The calculations show that the closer towards the hinge the moving mounting point gets, the higher the opening force required.

## How long does a gas spring last?

A gas spring can usually be operated around 40,000 times. In other words, its lifespan depends on how many times it is opened and closed. A gas spring for a kitchen cupboard will usually remain functional for around 3–5 years.

Do gas springs wear out?

If a gas spring has lost its force, in the vast majority of cases this is due to defective seals. Dried-out seals cannot be replaced – so the whole gas spring has to be replaced. Gas springs must be stored and fitted with the piston pointing downwards and at 45 degrees to the horizontal.

What does N mean in gas struts?

Newton
If the number of Newton is not on the gas strut to be replaced or if it is illegible, we recommend that you calculate the number of Newton using the Calculation tool. It is best to calculate the gas springs all over again, so also include the dimensions of the gas struts and the end fittings.

Can gas springs be recharged?

There is no problem with refilling gas springs, but postage costs often mean it is not worth it, as a gas spring is not an expensive product. Variload gas springs are often used for testing and development.

## Can you repair gas springs?

No, it is a closed system – with high pressure. If a gas spring has lost its force, in the vast majority of cases this is due to defective seals. Dried-out seals cannot be replaced – so the whole gas spring has to be replaced.

Can you repair a gas spring?

Gas springs are self-contained units that require no periodic maintenance or service beyond being kept clean and dry. Lubrication of the spring is internal and no external lubrication is required. Repair of gas springs is not possible as loss of force is caused by main seal damage and gas springs should be replaced.

### What size gas shock do I need?

In general the length to choose for gas struts is about 55% of the height of the door you are trying to keep open. So if you have a door that is 1000mm in height a 550mm long gas strut would be about right. In simple terms we are talking half the door height plus a bit when determining optimal gas strut length.
