Hydraulic Cylinder Repair Tips
Having hydraulic cylinders that are even slightly damaged on your machinery can lead to huge repair costs down the road if not attended to immediately.
There are several circumstances in which a hydraulic cylinder may require your attention but, in most cases, it may only warrant a repair. Below are some of the things you should be keeping an eye out for when inspecting your hydraulic cylinders.
One of the most obvious issues you may find when inspecting cylinders is when the hydraulic cylinder has become “self lubricating” weeping/leaking. When the hydraulic fluid from the hydraulic cylinder starts to leak from the gland, or if there is moisture around the piston rod, it could mean that the seals have perished.
Before you go and start ripping the cylinder out of the machine, you want to try and establish what caused the failure in the first place. You don’t want to replace the cylinder seals only to find that the ram is pitted or misaligned.
There is a lot of causes or leaking rams, it could be as simple as an aged (and perished) seal, to contaminants from your oil (or environment) damaging the cylinder itself and thus damaging the wear ring. If your cylinder body has been scored but dirt, you may need to hone your cylinder barrel.
Hydraulic Cylinder Seal and Rods Repair
While it is possible to replace seals yourself I would caution that if not done correctly, you will inevitably experience a seal failure again. It’s also a slower proposition to do yourself generally due to not having the correct tools to replace glands and seals efficiently.
Another issue you can come across with hydraulic cylinders is broken or deformed cylinder rods. This is generally caused by side loading due to the above seals warping and if left unchecked will leave to some pretty catastrophic failures.
If this happens to you most bent, snapped rods and yokes can be repaired be specialist hydraulic cylinder repairs if caught early, but if its left uncheck the only course of action may be a costly replacement.
Frequently Asked Questions
This can be a difficult question as cylinders vary greatly in size and style. Time for the repair also depends a lot on the work required. Generally, for a straight forward seal replacement,rod polish and hone on cylinder bores ranging from 2″ – 12″ and up to 5 meters in the length the normal time would be 2 working days. Rod repair and/or replacement, seal replacement generally 3-4 working days. Major works like new barrel or re-manufacturing new mounting/bushings would be around 7-10 working days.
