Shock absorbers have larger energy capacity

Magnum shock absorbers from Ace Controls are available in both adjustable and self-compensating versions, and are said to have a larger energy capacity than competing units, all in a smaller fully threaded body for easier mounting. To achieve this greater energy capacity, the inner and metering tube diameters have been increased.

The larger diameter inner tube also gives an increased operating range of effective weights. Two further improvements are an integral stop collar and a superior length to diameter ratio for the rod bearing. Magnum shock absorbers are protected in dirty environments with a new rod seal design with unsymmetrical u-cups. A blend of polyurethane seal material, with less compression set and higher tensile strength, extends the seal’s life. The integral stop collar mechanically shields the wiper seal and rod.
