The Paratech HydraFusion Struts (AcmeThread) are comprised of a 3” diameter threaded aluminum shaft that extends hydraulically out of a 3 1/2” diameter aluminum tube. The hydraulic lift capacity is 10 U.S. tons with a 2:1 safety factor.
Once the strut is extended, the AcmeThread collar is spun down to the locked position and creates a 20,000 lbs. 4:1 safety factor for stabilization.
Place strut into position, ‘EXTEND’ threaded shaft into desired length,‘SPIN’ collar to ‘LOCK’ the strut.
It is as easy as… ‘EXTEND & SPIN TO LOCK’
Adjustments to the threaded shaft can be made in ANY increment up to the maximum length of the strut.
