A fast, high quality and efficient hydraulic cylinder repair service

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 main service. Over the years we have become highly specialised in hydraulic 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 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 beyond repair and so probably scrapped.

Flexibility and Choice

Having this capabiliy in-house gives us more flexibility and our customers more choice when it comes to deciding how to deal with hydraulic ram repairs.

This often can often mean reduced costs, but it can also mean more 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. 

Hydraulic Cylinder Refurbishment: Better Than New

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

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

Applying this expertise means that hydraulic cylinders can often be repaired to a specification more suitable to their normal operating conditions. In other words they become better than new.

This means that you can often end up with a full hydraulic cylinder refurbishment / hydraulic ram refurbishment for the price of a repair.

The option of a new hydraulic cylinder is of course always there so that the replacement cylinder, or ram can be exactly to your specification.

A Quick Turnaround

hydraulic cylinders repairedWe can also get to that final repair specification quickly - reducing the lead time in turning around repairs.  

It is no accident that we bring up lead time again and again with respect to our cylinder repair services. 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 fail 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 a certified ISO 9000 quality managent system (QMS). 

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

This specialised control 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.

A very important part of our quality setup is our testing rig. As with other equipment, the pressure testing rig has been developed in-house.

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