How to Maintain Your Telescopic Cylinders
But no matter what type of cylinder you need, you’ll obviously want it to last as long as possible. Here are a few maintenance tips to make that happen.
- Only use clean oil – This might seem like one of the most basic maintenance tips, but you’d be surprised at how often the oil used to power cylinders goes unchecked. Contaminated oil is one of the biggest culprits behind hydraulic system failure. Make sure your filters are of the highest quality, and check them often. A differential pressure gauge will let you know when it’s time to replace the filter.
- Check your cylinders regularly – Look closely for any signs of uneven wear, corrosion or pitting. If you see corrosion, that will be a sign of a particularly serious issue. It will mean that your system could be contaminated by excess moisture, which could put it at a risk for failure. Uneven wear might be due to the cylinder not being correctly aligned. This could lead to “side-loading,” which can cause the bearing and seals to wear out prematurely.
- Rotation is important – It might be worth it to consider buying extra cylinders so you can rotate them out on a regular basis. This will help ensure all your cylinders stay fresh, regardless of the demands your machines place on them. Rotating will keep you from having to deal with downtime, and it will also give you an opportunity to inspect your cylinders and repair them if needed.
- Don’t forget about your accessories – While your telescopic cylinders are obviously important, the connections to the cylinder are just as critical. Take a look at your clevises, brackets, ball joints and other connections to check for any signs of wear. If the cylinder has excessive play, that might mean a worn clevis, for example. This could eventually cause the cylinder to fail.
