Abstract

Gas filled lengths of durable, inert plastic tubing can be used as impact absorbers in a particulate-free environment. Gas fittings are attached at opposite ends of the tubing lengths and filled with air to a desired pressure and sealed. These bumpers can be installed at impact points with hose clamps and cleaned with alcohol and lint-free cloth.
