Cylinder Repairs

MNE Hydraulics offer a fully comprehensive hydraulic cylinder repair service. This can range from a simple re-seal to a complete overhaul. All cylinders go through the below process

Our Comprehensive Service includes:

  • Clean
  • Strip
  • Inspect
  • Repair / replace any damaged metal work
  • Rebuild
  • Test
  • Paint

Each cylinder comes with a new identification tag to enable traceability and to build up a history for repeat failures

We also offer an on-site cylinder re-seal service for cylinders that are too big for shipping or inconvenient to remove from a machine/line for a number of possible reasons.


 Testing hydraulic cylinders is crucial for several reasons, as it helps ensure the safe and reliable operation of hydraulic systems and equipment. Here are some key reasons highlighting the importance of testing hydraulic cylinders

Safety Assurance: Testing hydraulic cylinders helps identify potential issues and weaknesses in the system before they lead to catastrophic failures. Ensuring the safety of operators and preventing accidents is paramount.

Performance Verification: Hydraulic cylinders play a critical role in various applications, from construction machinery to industrial equipment. Testing verifies that cylinders can perform their intended functions effectively and efficiently.

Leak Detection: Testing helps detect hydraulic fluid leaks, which can lead to system inefficiency, environmental contamination, and safety hazards. Early leak detection allows for timely repairs and prevents hydraulic fluid loss.

Seal and O-Ring Integrity: Hydraulic cylinders rely on seals and O-rings to prevent fluid leakage and maintain pressure. Testing ensures the integrity of these components, preventing leaks and system inefficiency.

Load Capacity Verification: Hydraulic cylinders are designed to handle specific loads and pressures. Testing confirms that a cylinder can withstand its rated load capacity without deformation or failure, which is critical for equipment safety.

Operational Efficiency: A well-maintained hydraulic cylinder operates more efficiently, consuming less energy and extending the life of other hydraulic system components, such as pumps and valves.

Reduction of Downtime: Regular testing and maintenance can help identify and address issues before they lead to equipment breakdowns. This proactive approach reduces unplanned downtime and associated production losses.

Compliance with Regulations: In some industries, there may be regulatory requirements for the testing and inspection of hydraulic systems and cylinders. Complying with these regulations is essential to avoid legal and safety issues.

Cost Savings: Testing and preventive maintenance are cost-effective compared to the expenses associated with equipment breakdowns, repairs, and replacement. It can also extend the lifespan of hydraulic components, reducing the need for frequent replacements.

Environmental Protection: Identifying and repairing leaks and other issues promptly helps prevent hydraulic fluid spills, which can be harmful to the environment.

Data Collection: Testing provides valuable data about the condition of hydraulic cylinders and the overall health of the hydraulic system. This data can inform maintenance schedules and help plan for component replacements
