Repair or Replace
The key here is value, will a repair provide a long term fix or will it fail again. Of course this is dependent on this application, a hose for example is always to best to make new. Hydraulic rams however are often the other side of the coin and repairing 99% of the time offers more value. This is also due to the extreme difficulty in finding a direct replacement off the shelf.
A large majority of the hydraulic rams we see often require a new seal kit to solve oil leaks. In other instances the reason for the escape of oil can be to pitting or a gauge in the rod. In our experience a lot of ram issues are much more cost effective to repair. This is a service we have supplied for many years with fast turn arounds and much success.
Hydraulic Ram Repair Success
We are turning ram reseals around within just a few days dependent on the availability of seals. Just recently we was required to make 2 bespoke hydraulic rams (the twins) for a large boat hoist. The challenge was accepted and from removal to installing the replacements back not even 3 weeks had passed, SUCCESS. When such an important client requests a job like this its always satisfying to exceed their expectations.
