Can a pitted hydraulic ram be repaired?

Can you Rechrome a hydraulic ram?

Coastal Hydraulics also has the ability to rechrome hydraulic rod cylinders. After grinding off all the existing chrome, the cylinder is replated and ground back to specifications. This is an alternative method to machining new, when machining new is no longer cost effective.

Can welded hydraulic cylinders be repaired?

Hydraulic cylinders come in two major types: welded and tie-rod. Welded cylinders come in welded designs hence difficult to repair, but rod seals and assembly of piston rods can easily be removed for service. On the other hand, tie-rod cylinders are easily repaired or, if necessary, repacked.

What is repacking a hydraulic cylinder?

Most hydraulic cylinders eventually begin to leak oil from their seals. Repacking the cylinders serves to keep costs down and machinery operational. Taking the time to repackage hydraulic cylinders fixes broken links and extends the cylinders’ life span.
