Reducing leakage in hydraulic cylinders

Challenge

Hydraulic cylinders located underground encountered a leak problem in the caps. One cap is about 6 inches in diameter. The equipment became inefficient due to the leak, resulting in excessive oil pressure.

Hydraulic Cylinder

Solution

The Chesterton 860 Mouldable Polymer Gasketing was applied to the surface which creates ultra-thin gaskets that conform to irregular surfaces.

More about the Chesterton 860 Mouldable Polymer Gasketing:

  • Economical; material costs less than compressed sheet gasketing
  • Excellent resistance to oils, water, chemicals, and solvents
  • Disassembles cleanly

Application of 860 Moldable Polymer Gasketing

Results

Chesterton 860 Mouldable Polymer Gasketing is a solid flexible gasket material that fills in surface irregularities, blocks leaks, and never sticks to surfaces after hardening. The product is easily moulded into simple or complex shapes, eliminating the need to hold inventory of precut gaskets or gasket sheets. It remains elastic and resists vibration.
