Hydraulic Cylinder Repairs & Maintenance

Queensland Hydraulics design and manufacture hydraulic cylinders, so repairing them back to new is effortless. We possess the right machinery, tools, people and knowledge to repair any hydraulic cylinder and our attention to detail is what sets us apart from the others. Our services include:

  • Completing an FEA (Finite Element Analysis) and engineering calculations to identify a cylinder’s stress points and confirm its suitability and sustainability to the tasks it is undertaking
  • Measuring the surface finish on all cylinder barrels and piston rods
  • Measuring all seal grooves to ensure they comply to Manufacturer’s tolerances
  • Gauging and measuring chrome thickness to check that it achieves a minimum 25 micron or meets customer specification
  • Via Micrometers, we measure the diameter of rods and bush glands accurately to ensure working tolerances meet industry standards
  • Paint stripping, rustproofing and finishing with two epoxy coats on all cylinders
  • Abrading by hand (rather than sandblasting, which has the potential to damage components of the cylinder)
  • We aim for a 4:1 in our own designed cylinders, so before pressure testing we calculate the safety factor on all repairs
  • Providing a test certificates on all of our repairs

It’s thorough, its unrivalled!
