What is a Gas Spring?

What type of gas is inside of the gas spring?

What materials are gas springs being made of?

Gemini Gas Springs™ are available in carbon steel with QPQ rod and epoxy coated cylinder or completely in stainless steel.

Do gas springs require maintenance?

No, Gemini Gas Springs ™ are maintenance free and ready for use. In dusty environments the rod can be wiped-off with a clean cloth but recommend to use a dust cap or a rod protector.

I have been told that gas springs are to be deemed as high pressurized containers and therefor require special handling with transport.

No, there is no need for special handling or documentation with transport of gas springs. A provision of IATA/NTSB/Transport Canada states that a cylinder/bottle with low pressure up to a value in Bar or Psi is to be deemed as harmless. Most if not all gas springs do not reach this value and therefor do not require special handling or documentation with air transport.

What is the average lifetime expectation of a gas spring?

Gemini Gas Springs ™ are being built from the highest quality materials available on the market. Commonly number of cycles would be between 50.000 and 100.000 however much depends on the application with its usage, stroke length and force. In practice a higher number of cycles may be achieved.

What type of gas springs does Gemini Gas Springs™ manufacture?

We manufacture:

  • - Gas compression springs, also called gas struts.
  • - Gas traction springs also called tension springs.
  • - Lockable gas springs also called blockable gas springs.
  • - Oil dampers.
  • - Stainless steel gas springs.

Do I need to secure connecting parts?

All our connecting parts are interchangeable and gives the client the flexibility to change last minute end connectors. We recommend to secure end fittings with a thread locker blue for medium and red for a permanent securing.

I foresee possible misalignment what type of connecting part should I use?

Gemini Gas Springs™ equipped with connecting parts must be mounted in line and should be able to pivot freely during operation. With applications that may see some misalignment we recommend using ball joints or rod end bearings. Gas springs must not be exposed to twisting or side forces, this will result in prematurely failure or bending of the piston rod.

For what temperatures are gas springs suitable?

Gemini Gas Springs™ are suitable for temperatures -30ºC up to +80ºC/-22ºF up to +176ºF. At the request of the client we can manufacture gas springs suitable for -45°C/-58°F or +200°C/+392°F

Can a gas spring be mounted with rod upwards?

Gemini Gas Springs™ can be mounted in any direction however we do recommend mounting a gas spring with the cylinder part to the object that needs to be lifted. In this way damping and best lubrication of the seals will be achieved.

I have a broken gas spring from another brand and on the label is no force mentioned or it is not readable anymore.

When clients are not sure about the force we offer the possibility of Gemini Gas Springs™ with a bleed-off valve. Gas springs with a bleed-off valve can be adjusted to any required force by the client. Should client accidentally bleed-off too much then we recharge them for free.

Where are Gemini Gas Springs™ being manufactured?

Our gas springs are truly manufactured from scratch locally in Vernon BC Canada.
