In layman’s terms – gas springs use a compressed gas, contained within a cylinder being variably compressed by a piston, to exert a force. Compared to mechanical springs, gas springs generate a much larger force and longer stroke, especially in relation to their size and weight.
The gas spring force is progressive, ideally suitable for vehicles since you get both a soft spring for high comfort, as well as a stiff spring for driving stability.
KALLER Hydrop gives you great flexibility, since the characteristics of a gas spring at any given time can be adjusted to suit different driving conditions simply by changing the gas pressure. For example, this is a very valuable advantage for vehicles with high load variation that run on varying terrains and in big differences in ambient temperature.
KALLER Hydrop optimizes damping and spring in one unit in less space and weight than an alternative with for example coil spring and damper, which is especially suitable for heavy off-road vehicles.
For a better working environment
Better suspension means better comfort and personnel safety. Since gas springs drastically reduce vibration levels, the vehicle and the driver can perform better. This increased efficiency also decreases total vehicle emissions as well as wear on vehicle and driving surface.
With Hydrops installed, the ride height and leveling of the vehicle can easily be modified as well as allow level adjustment on each individual wheel station. This allows you to maintain your desired driving characteristics with or without load, on or off road.
Many of our customers benefit from the fact that our gas springs manage both pushing and pulling suspension. This allows for alternative placement of suspension on vehicles as well as other applications.
We deliver solutions that are easily expandable. This way, if you upgrade the design of your application, we can easily modify the suspension as well. We can also add extra features to the suspension at any time if the customer requests it.
Large variety of damping technology fully adapted for your vehicle give you the damping best suitable for your need, either it is low cost or best performance.
Partner up with KALLER not only because we have a dedicated team with over 20 years of experience of racing suspension and loves what we do, but also because we utilize our annual production of more than 1 million high performance gas springs and 40 years of knowledge on how to design them to give your heavy off-road vehicle world class suspension at an unbeatable cost.
