MSV drain valve type

The use of gas springs with drain valve is advantageous when the gas springs are to be installed in a location where there has been no gas spring before and the thrust force that will result in proper operation is not known or difficult to determine. It is suitable for custom manufacturing, designing a target machine or prototype, but can also be used to operate an existing element.

Sizes match those of MS compression gas springs, with the same damping capabilities and choice of coupling. However, with this type, the displacement force is chosen to be as high as possible for the characteristics of the type, in order to obtain a product with the correct operating characteristics when the pressure is released.

At the end of the MSV gas spring there is a valve closed and actuated by an allen screw, the momentary opening/closing of the allen screw is required to adjust the gas spring extension.
