Tips to reduce hydraulic ram failures and repairs​.

There are some simple steps that you can take to reduce ongoing costs of repairs to your hydraulic ram. In carrying out these steps on a regular basis you are far less likely to incur surprise expenses and in turn reduce unneeded downtime. As someone who frequently uses a hydraulic system you should be fairly familiar with the good and bad sounds that can occur. By paying close attention to the sounds that emit from your system you can avoid burning seals and lost lubrication.

Not only should you take note of the sounds being produced, but also conduct visual inspections to check your cylinder rod. If the rod appears bent or warped it can cause a load shift. If the machine continues operation for an extended time period with a warped rod it can cause broken seals and consequently a leak within the cylinder. In the worst case scenario it can completely snap which can result in the machine abruptly halting operation which is not only problematic but also extremely dangerous.

It’s also fundamental to be checking the valves and seals and to watch out for leaks. Leaking can cause high oil consumption at a minimum, and in worse cases can be a huge safety and accident concern. If you are lucky enough to avoid an accident, you’re more likely going to be faced with inefficient machine operation or component failure.

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.

What is a hydraulic ram?

In modern hydraulics there are several types of hydraulic cylinders which can be used. They vary depending on the requirement needed for the job type. Ram cylinders operate by using pressurised fluid to create a stroke action. There are single or double acting ram hydraulic cylinders each of which serve different purposes.

They are often only used for pulling and pushing instead of lifting or actuating a load. Other types of hydraulic cylinder include single-acting, double-acting, differential, non-differential, piston-type, cushion and lockout.

Hydraulic cylinders are extremely important in the movement of modern machinery. Their advantages are their accuracy and efficiency. They are also relatively easy to clean and maintain all while being able to emit large amounts of power which is a crucial requirement in the world construction, manufacturing and logistics.

Should I replace or repair my hydraulic ram?

It would be less than economical to completely replace a hydraulic ram without distinguishing first why the original one failed. In order to establish the best course of action the system will need to be stripped and assessed to get a clearer indication of the root of the issue.

If there is a suspected failure of the ram components then it may mean that it will need replacing in its entirety, fortunately we may be able to salvage some of the parts from the original ram which can be used within the repair process, as the parts can be expensive to manufacture, especially if they are ‘built-to-fit’ using the spare parts can reduce your repair costs.

Hydraulic ram maintenance.

With machinery often comes maintenance, so not only can our team of specialists repair your systems and machines but they can also maintain them on an ongoing basis. Maintenance really is the key to avoiding costly expenses in the future.

The key areas that we focus on are the pistons, seals, vents, rod and fluid. It is imperative that all areas within the ram are doing what they are supposed to do. We check for fluid leaks, chipping, extraneous materials within the cylinder chamber, air and pressurization levels. By keeping on top of the maintenance of your system you are guaranteeing a longer lasting and more efficient product.
