Hydraulic Cylinder Repair

Cylinders are essential pieces of hydraulic equipment and keeping them serviced and maintained can improve lifespan and performance. Adams-ISC offers a full range of industrial hydraulic services, including hydraulic cylinder repair up to 17 feet long. Re-torque capability up to 10,000 psi.

All brands and types of cylinders repaired to factory conditions:

  • Two main styles of cylinders: tie rod and welded body
  • Special styles: telescopic, plunger, differential, Position Sensing

Common cylinder issues: leaking seals, scratches or pits on the bore, and bent rods. Scratches, gouges, or pitting in the cylinder bore or a bent piston require special equipment to perform the repair. To get the job done quickly and done right the first time, a professional hydraulic repair shop with the right training, tools, and equipment is your best option.

Cylinder repair process consists of these basic steps: disassembly, diagnosing the problem, repairing or replacing damaged parts, rebuilding, and diagnostic testing

Repair of basic cylinder parts:  2- and 4-stage, pneumatic, hydraulic, barrel, base/cap, head, piston/rod, seals

Repair of  internal parts of a component: cylinder base connection, cushions, internal threaded ductile heads, head glands, pistons, cylinder head caps, butt plates, eye and clevis brackets, mounts, rod eyes and clevis, pivot pins, spherical ball bushings, spherical rod eye, alignment coupler, ports and fittings, follower blocks

Here are some of the services you can expect during your repair:

  • Assessment: The cylinder is stripped, inspected, measured, and pre-tested. A failure analysis may be required.
  • Design enhancement: Cylinders experiencing continual problems could be the result of poor design. We will review the design and make adjustments to improve performance and lifespan.
  • Milling/Turning: Machines are used to repair and re-manufacture threads, pistons, barrels, rods, end caps, etc.
  • Barrel honing: An abrasive rotating tool removes internal wear and metal from the interior surface of the barrel. Honing is done to finish the bore surface to a precise diameter with an improved surface finish.
  • Welding: Specialized welding techniques including TIG and MIG are used to repair parts.
  • Assembly/Testing: Cylinders are re-assembled to achieve original closed center and stroke distances.

All hydraulic cylinders are tested in-house before being returned. Testing ranges from basic pressure testing to more rigorous testing, tailored to the application.

Hydraulic Hose Assembly

Our hydraulic experts can manufacture and trouble-shoot custom hydraulic hoses to your specification. We have an unmatched parts inventory with a wide selection of hoses, fittings, adapters, and fluid. We understand that hose failures never happen at a good time and that you need your equipment back up and running fast.

A broken hose can be the result of aging, friction, pressure spikes, poor installation, and many other reasons. That is why we have trained hydraulic specialists to evaluate your hose and determine what caused the failure.

We take the following into consideration to make sure we build a hose assembly to meets your needs: hose size, application, material flowing through, maximum working pressure, and fittings needed.

Our Adams-ISC shop houses a Gates GC32-XD crimper, which allows us to crimp every hose and coupling in the Gates hydraulic catalog. The GC32-XD uses a cloverleaf design that produces a better crimp than standard annular head configurations and reinforces the piston so the dies move smoother for a consistent crimp without any taper in the OD.

Line Boring Services

Line boring is a machining and welding process to repair holes that have been worn beyond tolerance parameters. This is done by building up the inside diameter of the bore through a welding process and precision machining the hole back to original  specifications. Upon completion, the bore will have a slip or press fit to accept new bushings or pins.

Equipment tear-down, disassembly, attachment removal, and transporting equipment from the job site to a repair shop is not only time consuming, but expensive. For your convenience, we offer portable line boring and on-location service.
