Even the smallest cylinder leaks often lead to serious problems. Repairing a leaky cylinder is also one of the most cost-effective ways to keep your equipment running at peak performance. An external cylinder leak is usually caused by worn seals or a scratched rod. These leaks allow dirt and contaminants back into the cylinder. Once these dirty particles are in the cylinder, they begin to recirculate in your hydraulic system. Depending on the nature of your system and its plumbing, dirt can move to other cylinders, valves, or even your pump. Over time this reduces the efficiency of your machine’s system and will eventually lead to a failure. Catching and repairing any cylinder issues early will save you thousands of dollars in the future.
