Real savings with cylinder repair service

Real savings with cylinder repair service

Friday 22nd April 2011

Companies using pneumatic cylinders from famous-name manufacturers including Norgren, SMC, Festo, Camozzi, Bosch Rexroth, Parker and many others can now repair, rather than replace faulty units, thanks to Thorite's Cylinder Seal Kit Overhaul and Repair service - and make really worthwhile savings.

93% of cylinder problems are caused by seal wear, increasing energy costs due to air leakage, along with a loss of both speed and power.  Thorite will collect leaking cylinders, refurbish and return them ready for re-fitment within ten working days, with all work covered by a 3 month warranty.

The service, based on standard ISO/VDMA cylinders, starts from just over £100 for a 32Ø unit and increases in small increments as bore sizes become greater.  (Prices are for cylinder seal refurbishment only, and any other cylinder defect, such as a dented barrel, cracked end cap or bent piston rod is subject to examination and a separate quotation for repair.)

A new service for hydraulic and rodless pneumatic cylinders is also available and for these units Thorite engineers individually assess each cylinder and provide an estimate for each repair.

Sample costs involved in recent refurbishments include a Parker tie-rod cylinder of 100 bore x 100 stroke collected, repaired, re-sealed, tested and returned for £140, or a Bosch Rexroth tie-rod cylinder of 100 bore x 300 stroke collected, fitted with a new piston rod, repaired, re-sealed, tested and returned for just £260.

The bottom line has never been more important to UK business, but by using this proven overhaul & repair service manufacturing, engineering, processing and other industries large and small can save costs, energy and benefit from peak cylinder performance.
