What are Excavator Stick Cylinders?
Excavator stick cylinders, also known as dipper cylinders, are an essential component of any excavator. The cylinder is a linear actuator that is responsible for controlling the up and down movement of the arm and bucket. Without a functioning cylinder, the excavator cannot be used.
When Does the Problem of Excavator Stick Cylinders Occur?
The problem of excavator stick cylinders can occur when the seals become worn or damaged, the cylinder is overfilled, the rod is bent, or the cylinder is exposed to extreme temperatures. These problems can cause the cylinder to fail to move correctly or at all.
Solutions for Excavator Stick Cylinder Problems
1. Check and Replace Worn or Damaged Seals
The first step is to check and replace any worn or damaged seals. This will ensure that the cylinder remains airtight and is able to move correctly.
2. Make sure the Cylinder is Properly Filled
The cylinder must be filled with the correct amount of hydraulic fluid. An overfilled cylinder can cause the seals to fail and cause the cylinder to malfunction.
3. Straighten the Rod
If the rod has become bent, it can cause the cylinder to fail to move correctly. The rod must be straightened to ensure that the cylinder is able to move correctly.
4. Avoid Extreme Temperatures
Extreme temperatures can cause the seals to become brittle and fail. It is important to keep the cylinder away from extreme temperatures.
Steps for Confirming Excavator Stick Cylinder Problems Have Been Resolved
1. Check the Seals
Once the seals have been replaced, it is important to check that they are properly installed and are not leaking.
2. Check the Rod
The rod should be checked to ensure that it is straight and undamaged.
3. Test the Movement of the Cylinder
Once the seals and rod have been checked, the cylinder should be tested to ensure that it is able to move correctly.
Preventive Measures for Excavator Stick Cylinders
1. Regularly Inspect the Cylinder
Regularly inspect the cylinder for any signs of wear or damage. This will help to identify any potential problems before they become serious.
2. Keep the Cylinder Clean
Clean the cylinder regularly to ensure that it is free of debris and dirt. This will help to prevent seals from becoming worn or damaged.
3. Use the Correct Hydraulic Fluid
It is important to use the correct type of hydraulic fluid for the cylinder. This will help to ensure that the cylinder is properly filled and functioning correctly.
4. Avoid Extreme Temperatures
It is important to keep the cylinder away from extreme temperatures. This will help to prevent seals from becoming brittle and failing.
