US-based Ace Controls International now offers a range of stainless-steel shock absorbers. The shock absorbers are manufactured in V4A stainless steel and use a special oil that fulfils the NSF-H1 requirements of the food industry. They are suitable for use in the medical, pharmaceutical, food, offshore and marine industries. The two stainless-steel ranges, developed from existing products in Ace’s shock absorber range, are the MC150-MC600 V4A Series and the Magnum V4A Series. Both ranges offer high-energy absorption in compact packages (MC Series – 86.6mm to 141.9mm and Magnum – 151.7mm to 344mm), self-compensation, an integrated mechanical stop, and a range of effective weights – from 0.9kg to 42,500kg.
