One of our greatest specialities is repairing and overhauling hydraulic cylinders.

Service and repair of hydraulic cylinders

Breedveld & Weaver has already 50 years of experience in hydraulic repairs. Our repair department is able to conduct almost any (aspect of the) repair and is equipped with up-to-date tooling, machines, test installation and other facilities.

One of our greatest specialties is repairing and overhauling hydraulic cylinders. Skilled mechanics ensure an expert repair or overhaul of almost any kind of hydraulic cylinder. Even when it was originally not supplied by us. Quotation and continuous evaluation will give you as a customer insight in the progress of the repair.

Modifying and upgrading shafts/rods, bearing strips, seals etc. is part of our daily activity. We also have great expertise in repairing and remanufacturing cylinders and parts to specifications of old, damaged or discontinued models, and/or to your specific needs, and/or to manufacturers specifications.

Repair and/or overhaul of hydraulic cylinders is almost always possible. It is therefore important to check if it is more profitable to repair and/or overhaul in case of failure or damage. Just contact us and we will give you a repair cost quotation based on very competitive pricing. Fast turnaround is possible after consultation. Repaired and overhauled cylinders are returned with a standard test report on request.

To obtain the best quality of repair and overhaul, Breedveld & Weaver uses the following techniques to renew surface treated parts

Nickel Hard Chrome

By applying a top layer of Nickel Hard Chrome on a metal part of a machine or other equipment, the qualities of both the base metal and the applied nickel and chrome can be combined. This makes it possible to have the metal part be strong enough for the load while attaining corrosion resistance and durability due to the added materials in the top coat.
With Nickel Hard Chrome surface treatment, first a thin layer of nickel is applied to the base part making the material resistant to external influences. Then the hard chrome surface is made, obtaining the extra quality of durability due to its extreme toughness, correct structure for lubrication and low coefficient of friction.

This makes it possible to have the metal part be strong enough for the load while attaining corrosion resistance and durability due to the added materials in the topcoat.
With Hard Chrome surface treatment a very tough and durable topcoat is obtained with the correct surface structure. This results in a lower coefficient of friction making the part more durable and resistant to outside influences.

Laser Cladding

Laser Cladding is a unique laser surface treatment technology where by means of a high power laser a thin layer of the base material is molten and inter-metallically bonded with supplemented materials. Depending on the choice of the inter-metallic bonds, highly dedicated surface improvements can be achieved, for example highly anti-corrosive and wear-resistant surfaces. Furthermore, this process makes it possible to bring the part back to its original dimensions, but with a tougher, more durable surface. This surface treatment is a perfect solution to modify and increase the life expectancy of your hydraulic cylinder.

Cylinder Honing

If a cylinder bore suffers from slight surface damage, we are usually able to restore the surface by brushing. For larger damages, honing the cylinder bore is a cost effective solution. The honing procedure achieves a bore finish that meets OEM specs or manufacturer’s requirements.

 

Service and repair of other hydraulic equipment

In addition to repairing and overhauling hydraulic cylinders, we have extensive experience in repairing and maintaining complete hydraulic units, valves and other hydraulic components.

For servicing and repairing of manually, pneumatic or electric driven pumps, rams, jacks and other high pressure hydraulic equipment we operate a separate dedicated repair- and testing facility.

Our test equipment enable us to conduct various testing methods, like testing pumps up to 2800 bar and rams up to 400 tons. Certification surveys can also be conducted in co-operation with institutes like Lloyds and T.N.O. upon request.

We also supply parts, seals, rod-gland-piston seals, O-rings and repair kits for various kinds of hydraulic equipment and cylinders.
