Whether it's due to extreme cold subzero temperatures or cold hydraulic fluid conditions, maintaining and repairing hydraulic cylinders and seals is imperative.
High impact equipment used in industries like waste disposal, transportation, construction, agriculture, forestry, mining and mineral extraction require hydraulic seals & maintenance to restore functionality and performance affected by these extreme temperatures. When heavy equipment is left parked or stored in extremely cold weather, it is not uncommon to find cylinders weeping fluid at the rod gland.
As multiple industries demand for more robust, dynamic sealing options for ranging cold conditions continue to evolve, it is crucial to follow the standard upkeep of these heavy equipment types. Primarily, to allow for the proper function of a typical hydraulic cylinder and pneumatic system, the circuit needs to be sufficiently warmed to encourage hydraulic fluids to flow properly.
