In a more demanding environment, such as exterior exposure, Pentalift offers to upgrade to an epoxy finish. Where regular chemicals wash down, or there is concern about oxidization, Pentalift can offer hot dip galvanized finish. Finally, some applications such as food handling, may require complete stainless steel construction. Contact your Pentalift Sales Representative for consultation on the best finish for your application.

They both use two leg sets. The TL has a lower profile and is lighter duty, while the TLH has a greater, fully lowered height and offers much higher capacities.

September 13, 2016, 10:18 am - As we know, air is compressible and fluids are not. Air in the hydraulic system can cause sponginess or bounce in the hydraulic cylinder until it is successfully removed. One of the main features of a PentaFlow cylinder is that air in the system, often introduced during installation, can be easily removed to eliminate sponginess and bounce. When the lift cylinder piston reaches full extension, a horizontally positioned actuator opens the internal valve in the lift cylinder. Once the valve opens, the hydraulic oil is ported (directed) out of a fitting at the top of the lift cylinder, through a connecting hydraulic hose and back to the reservoir. The trapped air in the hydraulic system is easily and successfully pushed back into the reservoir and vented through the reservoir breather cap.

September 2, 2016, 8:21 am - The PentaFlow Lift Cylinder has a mechanically operated internal valve. This valve is located in the machined cartridge at the base of the chromed piston. During the lifting cycle, the internal valve is closed. When the piston reaches full extension, a horizontally positioned actuator opens the internal valve. Once the valve opens, the hydraulic oil is ported (directed) out of a fitting at the top of the lift cylinder. It then goes through a connecting hydraulic hose and back to the reservoir.

These resources can be used to help design and build custom solutions for customer integration requirements. These types of added options can be items such as the ability of the control panel to accept interlock or customer supplied signal. Contact a Pentalift Sales Representative for more information.
