Hydraulic Cylinder Repair FAQ’s
Why Choose Betts Truck Parts for Hydraulic Cylinder Repair?
Betts Truck Parts & Service has been in San Leandro since the early 1970’s. Our skilled repair technicians have experience repairing hydraulic cylinders. In addition, we work directly with hydraulic cylinder manufacturers to receive the latest training. We are your local experts, leveraging knowledge learned over time to handle complex hydraulic repairs.
What Is Side Loading and How Does Side Loading Cause Hydraulic Cylinder Failure?
Side loading is caused by cylinder misalignment, which creates an unusual force on the piston rod. A side load of enough magnitude can cause tube scoring, piston rod and rod bearing wear, and seal failure.
Can Contaminated Fluid Cause Hydraulic Cylinder Failure?
Yes, contaminated fluid can cause premature rod seal failure resulting in a failed hydraulic cylinder. Abrasive particles in the hydraulic cylinder fluid can damage the seal and the piston rod surface. In addition, airborne contaminants can be drawn into a cylinder by a faulty wiper seal. The most usual source of contamination is from oil or the pump, although contamination of the fluid can occur in a number of ways.
Does a Rough or Scored Rod Cause Cylinder Failure?
Yes, a rough rod can cause damage. Rough surfaces on the rod damage the seals and reduce their lifespan, resulting in more frequent replacements.
How Long Does It Take for Hydraulic Cylinder Repair?
Every repair is different. However, we will supply you with a time estimate to perform your repair once our technicians have been able to review the problem with the cylinder. Our goal is always to provide a fast turnaround for you.
