Cylinder Repair or Replacement

With diligent monitoring and regularly scheduled maintenance, hydraulic cylinders will serve your business well for many years. However, situations will arise that challenge you to consider repair versus replacement. Read here about three major considerations when making the determination to repair or replace a hydraulic cylinder.


Hydraulic Cylinder Sizing Considerations

Companies often find themselves in hot water when cutting corners and cost by selecting an off-the-shelf cylinder that looked the part, but simply could not meet the demands of the job. Using a cylinder that has not been designed and manufactured for the industry, application, and workload increases liability and risk to personnel, property, and also makes for a dangerous work environment. Click here to read further about specific sizing considerations and how a purpose-built, or custom built, cylinder might be the solution for your job.


What Are Hydraulic Motors?

Hydraulic drive systems use pressurized hydraulic fluid to power hydraulic machinery. These systems are comprised of hydraulic pumps, motors, and cylinders. Hydraulic motors convert hydraulic pressure and flow into torque and rotation, providing the force and motion to move an external load. You can read here about the four specific types of hydraulic motors. The type you need will be based on your job and application.
