What are benefits of Hydraulic Cylinder Rod Rechroming using ACT?



// EXTENDED ROD LIFE AND ENHANCED PERFORMANCE //

Laboratory tests revealed hydraulic cylinder seal failure at 350,000 cycles on traditional chrome rods, whereas rods coated with the ACT process continued performing after one million cycles.



// FAST TURNAROUND //

Hydraulic cylinder rod can be resurfaced within 24 hours - eliminating the time and cost involved in shipping to specialized re-chroming facilities, and getting your equipment back in service quicker. With capabilities to resurface hydraulic cylinder

rods up to 20 inches in diameter and up to 20 feet long.



// SUPERIOR WEAR //

The high-density metal alloy coating, with only one percent porosity, is extremely resistant to corrosion and oxidation, and offers the hydraulic cylinder rod more durability to withstand the kind of scratching and abuse that occurs in harsh job environments.

Restoring cylindrical metal surfaces is SAFER, FASTER and MORE CONVENIENT than ever before with Advanced Chrome Technologies (ACT), a high-velocity, thermal coating process available exclusively at Ring Power.

Advantages of the ACT Process

FAST TURNAROUND.

Parts can be resurfaced within 24 hours - eliminating the time and cost involved in shipping to specialized rechroming facilities, and getting your equipment back in service quickly.



SUPERIOR WEAR CHARACTERISTICS.

The high-density metal alloy coating, with only one percent porosity, is extremely resistant to corrosion and oxidation, and offers more durability to withstand the kind of scratching and abuse that occur in harsh job environments.



EXTENDED LIFE AND ENHANCED PERFORMANCE.

Caterpillar laboratory tests revealed seal failure at 350,000 cycles on traditional chrome rods, whereas ACT-coated rod s continued performing after one million.



ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE.

No harmful chemical agents are required, and no dangerous byproducts are produced by the process, eliminating the need for costly disposal operations required by stringent governmental regulations.

ACT, a high-velocity oxy-fuel spray coating process, is ideal

for resurfacing cylindrical metal parts including:

• Cylinder rods

• Strut rods

• Linkage pins

• Rotating shafts

ACT SMART.

Computer-controlled for precise results ACT not only meets the functional requirements of the component but also offers superior wear characteristics. ACT will extend product life, improve performance and reduce owning and

operating costs.



Your machines work hard. Sooner or later, they’re going to

need repair. When the time comes, let the ACT specialists at Ring Power make the job a little easier on you.
