There is not always a need to replace each individual piece that creates a whole piece of equipment, sometimes there is an easy fix and a quick process of repairing it. There are other times that do not require any repairs and the best thing you could do is replace it with a new and strong piece. Your O-ring plays a highly important role keeping the pneumatic-hydraulic cylinder system working in top-notch condition and keeping your operations at optimal levels. But at some point in time, you will experience a problem that a seal repair kit cannot fix.
Repairs Will Only Do So Much
It is important to monitor the health of each part of your cylinder to ensure that it does not begin to cause extensive damage to the overall system and equipment. This can become a very costly expense if things do are left to deteriorate. In many instances, you will be able to repair and lubricate the equipment to extend the lifespan of the equipment. However, there will get to a stage where the seal is no longer serving its function. This will lead to lowered performance and avoidable damage.
The Signs To Know When To Replace Your O-Ring
There are many reasons why an O-ring would fail and start to deteriorate sooner than it would normally. The reasons range from improper size or installation, or to a lack of lubrication or the use of the wrong lubrication. But first and foremost, you would definitely notice if there are any demarcations and damage to the O-ring, so a frequent inspection will definitely do you a service. If you notice any oil leaks or fluid leaks where the O-ring is, the O-ring is on its way out. Of course, you should also be on the lookout for any performance issues.
