    Materials of Construction 

    Piston   Stainless Steel

    Seal   Nitrile / PTFE 

    Base   Stainless Steel

    Housing   Aluminium / Zinc diecast

    Cover   Glass Filled Nylon with Nitrile seal

    Maximum Pressure  

    To ensure long service life select the pressure range as follows:

    Dynamic pressure applications Pmax = 75% of Range

    Static pressure applications Pmax = 100% of Range

    Maximum pressure that can be applied is 125% of pressure range.

    Higher overload version available if required.

    Model numbers were redesignated during the 1990's.

    The following table gives the current replacement model for each of the original model numbers:

    Original Model Number New Model Number
    107 or 108 1381
    157 or 167 1481
    115 or 1351 1581
    207 or 208 2381
    257 or 267 2481
    215 2581
    117 or 118 1382
    167 1482
    120P 1392P

    Option code letters such as "V" or "Q" etc which were used with the original model numbers are still applied to the new model numbers in the same way.

    Examples : Original model 107V = New model 1381V

    Original model 207Q = New model 2381Q

    A repair service is available for this product. However, as a relatively low cost product it is generally cheaper to replace with a new unit. Please call us or e-mail for details.
