Why Choose Telescopic Cylinders?
Whether you have a fleet of dump trucks, or you just have one, telescopic cylinders are the best possible choice. Not only do they have a longer stroke than other types of cylinders, they can also be used in confined spaces. They’re not only perfect for dump trucks, they’re also great for other applications where a long stroke is needed in a limited space, such as an underground mining operation.
The reason telescopic cylinders work so well in dump trucks is that they allow the dump bed to be tilted at a specific angle, typically 60 degrees, and at a specific elevation. Unlike other kinds of cylinders, telescopic cylinders retract back into a completely horizontal position. This allows the dump body to sit flush, and not remain at a tilt.
This is very important, because this makes the dump truck safe for travel. If the dump body were always tilted upward, that would make it dangerous for the truck to be on just about any type of road. It could easily hit underpasses and other overhead obstructions. Telescopic cylinders take that risk out of the equation.
Keeping Your Telescopic Cylinders Working at Their Best
Just like any other piece of machinery, a telescopic cylinder needs to be regularly maintained in order to last as long as possible, and to be as reliable as possible. Here are a few easy steps to take to help you save money and avoid downtime.
- Check your oil regularly – Checking the oil in your vehicle helps it run the way it should. The same principle applies to your telescopic cylinders. Make sure they not only have an ample supply, but also that the oil hasn’t degraded.
- Inspect all cylinder components – Look for any signs of wear in your cylinders, such as cracked pipes or worn-out seals. Spotting a potential minor issue before it becomes a major problem will help protect your workers as well as your equipment.
- Check the filter – You should have a device, such as a pop-up gauge, that will let you know if your filter is clogged. Replace it immediately if that’s the case, because a contaminated filter could lead to big problems.
- Look for leaks – A leak in a hydraulic cylinder will typically occur gradually. Even a small leak can eventually cost you a lot of money, so be diligent. Let your equipment warm up and then take a close look at all fittings and connections.
