The Airpot Snubber achieves this by forcing ambient air through an adjustable orifice at a controlled rate, dissipating kinetic energy, reducing impact, noise and wear.
Airpot’s snubbers are specifically designed to provide unparalleled energy dissipation accuracy by eliminating friction from their working elements. The materials used have built-in lubricity, high strength-to-weight ratio, excellent stability under temperature/humidity extremes, close coefficients of thermal expansion, and non-deteriorating performance due to age or non-use. The basic parts are a graphitized carbon piston, precision ground to millionths of an inch TIR inside an annealed, borosilicate glass cylinder with a precision fire-polished bore. Airpot snubbers are available in 4 bore sizes ranging from 0.627” to 1.75” and strokes lengths of 1.1” to 2.3”
