Hydraulic Repair, Rebuild, and Testing

Adams-ISC provides repair services for virtually any hydraulic component including cylinders, pumps, motors, valves, tanks, winches, cranes, hoists, hoses, fittings, and power units. When a hydraulic unit is brought in to our shop for repair it is first disassembled and cleaned for a thorough inspection and all precision fits are checked for tolerances. Following an evaluation, an Adams-ISC hydraulic expert will provide an estimate for the repair.Cylinder-Service-Bench

Upon your approval, we will begin the rebuild process

  • Contact surfaces are reconditioned or replaced
  • New seals, bearings, gears, and other replacement parts are installed
  • Obsolete or non-repairable parts are replaced with custom parts built by Adams-ISC machining experts
  • Equipment is reassembled and tested
    • Our hydraulic test bench is the ultimate diagnostic tool, capable of thoroughly testing new or rebuilt components and sub-assemblies

Hydraulic Cylinder Repair

Cylinders are essential pieces of hydraulic equipment and keeping them serviced and maintained can improve lifespan and performance. Adams-ISC offers a full range of industrial hydraulic services, including hydraulic cylinder repair up to 17 feet long. Re-torque capability up to 10,000 psi.

All brands and types of cylinders repaired to factory conditions:

  • Two main styles of cylinders: tie rod and welded body
  • Special styles: telescopic, plunger, differential, Position Sensing

Cylinder-repairCommon cylinder issues: leaking seals, scratches or pits on the bore, and bent rods. Scratches, gouges, or pitting in the cylinder bore or a bent piston require special equipment to perform the repair. To get the job done quickly and done right the first time, a professional hydraulic repair shop with the right training, tools, and equipment is your best option.

Repair of basic cylinder parts including:  2-stage and 4-stage, pneumatic, hydraulic, barrel, base/cap, head, piston, piston rod, seals

And repair of all other internal parts of a component: cylinder base connection, cushions, internal threaded ductile heads, head glands, pistons, cylinder head caps, butt plates, eye and clevis brackets, mounts, rod eyes and clevis, pivot pins, spherical ball bushings, spherical rod eye, alignment coupler, ports and fittings, follower blocks

Cylinder repair process consists of these basic steps: disassembly, diagnosing the problem, repairing or replacing damaged parts, rebuilding, and diagnostic testing

Here are some of the services you can expect during your repair:

  • Assessment: The cylinder is stripped, inspected, measured, and pre-tested. A failure analysis may be required.
  • CylinderRebuildDesign enhancement: Cylinders experiencing continual problems could be the result of poor design. We will review the design and make adjustments to improve performance and lifespan.
  • Milling and turning: Milling and turning machines are used to repair and re-manufacture threads, pistons, barrels, rods, end caps, etc.
  • Barrel honing: An abrasive rotating tool removes internal wear and metal from the interior surface of the barrel. Honing is done to finish the bore surface to a precise diameter with an improved surface finish.
  • Chroming: Electroplating a thin layer of chromium onto the external surface of cylinder rods to maximize durability and corrosion resistance.
  • Welding: Specialized welding techniques including TIG and MIG are used to repair cylinder parts.
  • Assembly and testing: Cylinders are re-assembled to achieve original closed center and stroke distances.

All hydraulic cylinders are tested in-house before being returned. Testing ranges from basic pressure testing to more rigorous testing, tailored to the application.


Hydraulic Pump and Motor Repair

Adams-ISC can analyze your hydraulic motor and pump to identify the problem. The unit will be disassembled, cleaned, inspected, and checked for fit and tolerances. Any parts that are worn, broken, or missing are listed for replacement. Following our analysis, we will also let you of any recommendations we have that might improve the performance of your motor or pump.

Repair-Shop-GuysWe have the technology to test, troubleshoot, repair, and rebuild hydraulic motors and pumps to manufacturer’s specifications. We stock a large inventory of parts needed for the major brands of pumps and motors to expedite your repair.

Pump types we can repair: bent axis piston, inline piston, chemical, orbit, fixed/variable volume vane, radial piston, gear

Motor types we can repair:  axial piston, high speed, bent axis piston, high torque/low speed, gear, radial piston, gerotor, vane


Hydraulic Valve Repair

Hydraulic control valves are one of the most expensive and complex parts of a hydraulic system. It is important to have them serviced regularly to ensure proper performance. If your hydraulic valve is damaged or compromised, Adams-ISC can repair it to meet OEM specifications. We start by disassembling and cleaning the parts to inspect for flaws and identify parts that may need to be replaced. Once our analysis is complete, we can provide an estimate and our recommendations for repairing, rebuilding, or replacing your hydraulic valve.

Hydraulic-Pump-PictureWe stock a large inventory of parts for major brands of hydraulic valves to expedite your repair.

Types of valves we can repair: check, directional, flow control, pilot, pressure control, proportional, relief, servo, slave, stack, throttle

Hydraulic Hose Assembly

Hose-clampOur hydraulic experts can manufacture and trouble-shoot custom hydraulic hoses to your specification. We have an unmatched parts inventory with a wide selection of hoses, fittings, adapters, and fluid. We understand that hose failures never happen at a good time and that you need your equipment back up and running fast.

A broken hoses can be the result of aging, friction, pressure spikes, poor installation, and many other reasons. That is why we have trained hydraulic specialists to evaluate your hose and determine what caused the failure.

We take the following into consideration to make sure we build a hose assembly to meets your needs: hose size, application, material flowing through, maximum working pressure, and fittings needed

Our Adams-ISC shop houses a Gates GC32-XD crimper, which allows us to crimp every hose and coupling in the Gates hydraulic catalog. The GC32-XD uses a cloverleaf design that produces a better crimp than standard annular head configurations and reinforces the piston so the dies move smoother for a consistent crimp without any taper in the OD.


Gearbox Repair

For a cost effective alternative to gearbox replacement, Adams-ISC offers full and partial gearbox rebuilds, as well as minor repairs such as gear and seal changes. Identifying the cause of a gearbox failure is crucial to prevent future equipment problems. To determine the cause, we can run an oil analysis and a vibration analysis along with a visual inspection. Once a diagnosis is made, we apply design changes to eliminate reoccurring issues. We use top-quality replacement parts from our inventory of the most well-known manufacturers in the industry. You can expect gearbox repair at a fair price along with knowledgeable service and a quick turnaround.
