CPEL specialise in manufacturing and repairing hydraulic cylinders and rams. We can have new chrome rods made and fitted as well as new cast iron neck bushes and pistons made and fitted, seals supplied, cylinders reassembled and tested. Non-standard manifolds, fittings and feed pipes can be made and fitted. Eyes built up or sleeved and machined for pins or swivel bearings and circlip grooves re-machined. We can also provide a re-chroming service for large diameter or hollow rods or turned parts. We can provide hydraulic ram rechroming for many applications.

Hydraulic Ram Repairs

Hydraulic cylinder repair or hydraulic ram repair and refurbishment can often be quicker and cheaper than sourcing new equipment. Our service includes an assessment where we will tear down your faulty hydraulic cylinder and diagnose the extent of repair work that may be required. Following our inspection we may advise that a hydraulic cylinder repair is not viable, or that your repaired cylinder may be unreliable or prone to poor performance in future. If this is the case then we will explain why and quote for a replacement. You can depend on our precision turning, precision milling, producing quality CNC turning parts and being one of the few engineering companies in Cork specialising in stainless steel hydraulic rams.

Our in-house services include the design, manufacture and testing of stainless steel hydraulic cylinders, mild steel hydraulic cylinders and custom bespoke solutions to suit customer needs. If you need hydraulic cylinder rod rechroming, let us know and we will quote or suggest alternative solutions. Many of our hydraulic cylinders are made to measure – with sizes, materials and mountings customised for each application. Stainless steel hydraulic rams are manufactured with top-quality F51 Duplex stainless steel rods and 316 stainless steel bodies.
