Gas spring life test method

The gas spring piston rod is mounted vertically on the gas spring fatigue test machine with the piston rod downward using the connectors at both ends, and the opening and starting forces are recorded in the first cycle, and the mid-extension and compression forces Fl, F2, F3, F4 are recorded in the second cycle, and the nominal force, dynamic friction and elasticity ratio of the gas spring are calculated.
Rigidly locked gas springs should be locked in the mid-extension state to check the locking force. The measurement speed of the gas spring life tester is 2 mm/min, and the axial compression force required to produce a 1 mm displacement of the piston rod is the locking force value.
Elastic locking gas spring test should be done under simulated working conditions before 3 cycles, then locked in the stroke midpoint, gas spring life tester measurement speed of 8mm / min, so that the piston rod to move 4mm required axial compression force value is the value of the locking force.

Gas spring life test:
The gas spring with high and low temperature storage performance is tested according to the test method, and then clamped on the gas spring life tester, and the tester cycles the gas spring under the simulated working condition, and the frequency of the cycle is 10-16 times/min, and the temperature of the cylinder of the gas spring should not be greater than 50℃ during the whole test.
After each cycle of 10,000 times according to the test method to determine the force performance, 30,000 times after the cycle, the measured results should be in line with the following provisions.
1. Sealing performance - gas spring control valve closed, the piston should have a good seal to ensure that the piston rod can be locked in any position.
2. Cycle life - after high and low temperature storage performance test gas springs should be able to withstand 3000 cycle life test, the nominal force decay after the test should be less than 10%.
