Primary Metals

Parker has been a key partner supplying cylinders to the primary metal industry for over 50 years. We know that casting raw metal and manufacturing coke can test even the toughest cylinders. The Parker GEN II 2HB cylinder is built to last in these demanding applications with bolted construction, durable cylinder rods and superior sealing technology. Tough comes standard with this cylinder - it features high temperature polyurethane seals, high load bearings and other optional improvements as standard options.

Primary Metals

  • Parker high strength glands with extreme temperature seals are designed to survive in these especially tough conditions. Available gland seals rated to 400° F (204° C), are able to take the punishment of extreme heat that will fail regular seals. Parker's Crown Wiper™ and metallic rod scrapers are engineered to keep contamination at bay. These seal designs ensure increased machine productivity and performance.


    The Parker Gen II 2HB cylinder is a non-tie rod design for the primary metals industry. The threaded flange construction improves fatigue life compared with welded flange designs and provides for ease of serviceability. The 3000 psi envelope pressure is designed with a 4:1 safety factor for use in demanding applications.


    The Primary Metals industry demands performance. All 2HB cylinders offer online CAD drawings for quick and easy design. Parker's cylinder configurator helps make your cylinder and machine design easy and saves you valuable time. Cylinder model codes are easily created and 3D CAD formats are available for download. With the support of a dedicated engineering group, Parker Canada will work closely with you to develop the best cylinder for your application.
