Cat Hydraulic Cylinder Reseal

Up to 85% of hydraulic cylinder failures can be traced to contamination. Efficiency losses usually occur slowly and can reach 20% before the operator detects a loss in performance. Proper maintenance of worn hydraulic cylinders can reduce system contamination and improve machine performance/up-time This proper maintenance prior to a major failure will lead to longer hydraulic system components life and a lower owning and operating cost. Cat hydraulic cylinders are ready for installation on a machine. Cat hydraulic cylinders are designed for the specific Cat machine function and application. This feature, when combined with exclusive Cat Hydraulic Cylinder Seals, will extend cylinder life and provide superior productivity performance in many applications.
