Installation chamfers

Installation chamfers should be designed into the cylinder bore and onto the assembly end of the piston rod to ensure that the seal can easily transition from its free state diameter into its installed diameter. The installation chamfer should also be blended into the cylinder bore or piston rod diameter with a generous radius. The chamfer angle and minimum length recommendations are provided in the size lists of the relevant product section.
