PNEUMATIC AND HYDRAULIC REPAIR

Almost all parts in this industry are chrome plated from the factory.  However, the industry standard for chrome thickness is one mil (or .001”), just enough to last through the warranty period.  When the chrome wears through, then corrosion sets in which leads to galling and scratching and eventually seal failure and loss of pressure.

Ordering new parts is very expensive and sometimes takes several weeks.  Not only are you receiving a part that costs more and won’t last as long because of the thinner plating, but you also have to deal with down time waiting for the part.

HOW WE CAN HELP

When we receive a used rod, we precision grind all the damaged material off and any old chrome until we reduce the overall diameter by at least ten thousandths of an inch.  We then re-chrome the part  oversize, (larger than spec), and then put the part back into the grinding machine and precision grind it back to original specifications. Therefore, you now have 5 times the thickness of chrome for up to 5 times the wear of a factory part. And this is usually accomplished at a fraction of the cost and the down time of ordering a new part!
