Cylinder Construction
Cylinder Styles
Cylinders can be constructed in your choice of either Fusion Welded, Dovetail Fusion, or Dovetail Screw.

Exterior machined pockets produce a structural rib work that adds strength. The pockets also reduce wall thickness thereby enhancing solution transfer and enabling a more efficient current distribution
Interior “channels” funnel solution to the perforations increasing drainability, preventing peening, and eliminating adhesion
