De-gassing for controlled force reduction on valve gas springs
The reduction is made by screwing the DE-Gas on the male screwed end of the gas spring. The drain process is possible through light actuation of the push button. If too much nitrogen is discharged, the gas spring can be refilled by ACE.
1. Hold gas spring valve up
2. Insert DE-GAS adjuster knob on thread of the valve.
3. Press the DE-GAS adjuster knob with light hand force until you hear the nitrogen escaping. Press only briefly to avoid too much nitrogen being discharged.
4. After adjustment, remove the DE-GAS adjuster knob, mount the end fittings and test the gas spring in your application. If necessary, repeat the procedure.
If you use 2 gas springs in parallel, both gas springs should have the same force to avoid bending forces or side load on the application. If necessary, return to ACE to refill both gas springs to the same (average) force. If too much nitrogen is discharged, the units can be returned to ACE for re-gassing.
