Thanks Chris and Josh for the awesome service. Your communication is excellent and when I arrived to pick up my cylinder I have to say in my 25 years in this industry I have never had a cylinder returned in such great condition. The gland was painted and the minimal scratches on my cylinder(which is to be expected) were all professionally touched up and painted. The paint was colour match as well. I have never had this done before.You will definitely be doing all of my cylinder work

When our cylinder spat the dummy and bled out, I called Chris at RYCO Ingleburn. Chris, Billy and the team were very professional and had us back on the road within the time frame requested. They even stayed back late, just to make sure we were satisfied. Thanks guys!May 2019The team at Ryco Ingleburn have just completed another repair job for us. I honestly have not previously found a team that is so professional and solutions focused. These guys were able to replace our busted cylinders, install a new Power pack, Isolator switch & Pendent controller in only 2 Days.

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.

Cylinder Inspection.

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.

How long will my repair take?

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.

We encourage to set deadlines together with you at the booking stage so we can deliver to you as promised.

Is FluidKraft able to do this repair?

Our workshop capabilities around cylinders is very advanced. We can Machine,Hone,Weld and Test all under one roof. We have eliminated the reliance on 3rd parties to carry out specific works as we operate as a breakdown repair solution for our clients and have structured our business around minimizing downtime. Generally speaking we can handle hydraulic cylinders up to 500kg in overall weight.

How much will it cost?

This varies between jobs as you can understand but please call us and let us know your requirements and we will be able to give you an estimate over the phone or via email in most cases. Please provide us with as much information as you can so we can estimate as close as possible. Ultimately we always strip and assess each job on a case by case basis and can only guarantee repair costs on stripping of the cylinder. On stripping and reporting you are not obligated to use us for the repair and should you not wish to go ahead we will only charge for the labor to strip the cylinder and report.

How much warranty will i get, What are the buying risks?

Generally 12 month warranty applies to our cylinder repairs as long as it has been repaired to our standard advised. For instance if we mention that marks and damage is present on the cylinder rod and you don’t wish to replace it/repair it that is fine but in this instance we would not provide a warranty on the repair as seal damage and failure is likely to occur with in the 12 months. In some cases the customer may be happy with this as they need a very fast repair solution. We will always advise you if we cannot give a warranty on your repair.

Ask us about our warranty when you call or drop in.
