Hydraulic Cylinder Repair

The Cylinder Service Centre has specialised in hydraulic cylinder repair work from the very start of its existence.

In fact the business was started with repair as the core function so that over the years we have become highly specialised in cylinder repairs in terms of both equipment and personnel.

The Right Equipment

Cylinders repaired using our bespoke stripping rigThe cylinder stripping rig we use was conceptualised, designed and developed in-house to meet the highly specialised repair demands we encounter every day.

It is completely unique and can be found nowhere else in the world.

This rig allows us to strip and repair cylinders that normally would be regarded as irreparable and so probably scrapped.

Flexibility and Choice

This ability provides a great deal more flexibility and choice for our customers when it comes to dealing with cylinder repairs.

This often can reduce costs, but it also can provide additional options in deciding how the repair should be made.

For example, a different specification pin, or a change to a surface coating on an existing cylinder, can significantly improve both its performance and overall life.

Better Than New

Our staff are specialised and highly experienced with respect to cylinder repair which means we can identify reasons for failure more readily.

This knowledge of cylinder repair work is combined with the understanding we have about cylinders though the design and manufacturing part of our business.

The resultant expertise means that cylinders can often be repaired to a specification more suitable to the operating conditions than when they were new.

A Quick Turnaround

It is no accident that we bring up lead time again and again with respect to our cylinder repair services, as we know from experience just how important it is when a critical piece of equipment is stopped in need of repair.

It is important to make the repair quickly, but it is more important to make the sure the repair is good and will not be subject to failure again in the short term.

We therefore fully test all of our work on our specialised pressure testing machine and offer a 12 month guarantee.

High Quality is Standard

Our professional service is backed up by our commitment to ISO 9000

This isn't just a certificate to impress new customers, it is a genuine recognition of the well ordered and structured way we undertake pneumatic and hydraulic cylinder repairs.

Central to this is our computer control system which has been designed specifically to suit both our cylinder repair and manufacturing business.

This specialised custom system makes it so much quicker and easier to quote on an initial enquiry. This speeds up decision making and again reduces overall lead time.

As with other equipment the pressure testing rig has been developed in-house.

To make sure we covered all bases, the design and build was undertaken under technical advice (and ultimately approval) from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
