Any system that uses a hydraulic system of cylinders requires regular maintenance to reduce oil leaks and the rate of wear and tear. Worn seals generally reduce the effectiveness of your equipment to a point where they become completely useless. Hydraulic seal replacement is therefore important for a number of reasons.
1. The moment you have a leaking seal expect dust to start building up simultaneously with the oil dripping out. Abrasive components in the dirt end up in the hydraulic lines causing them to be clogged.
2. Dirt particles following the hydraulic line eventually make their way to valves causing the metering surfaces to erode.
Before you embark on a costly seal replacement maintenance job make sure you’ve tested them first. A simple tell-tale sign is leaking oil around the cylinders. If there is, then waste no time in calling a technician.
