Cleaning and Finishing for Hydraulic Components
Hydraulic system components include pump, valves, hoses, actuators, motors and other parts that perform critical functions in a variety of demanding industry applications. From the gaskets that prevent fluid leakage to the pumps responsible for fluid control, each part must be manufactured for precision and performance.
It is also important to perform pre-assembly and preventative maintenance to keep hydraulic parts operational. This includes removing burrs and debris from finishing processes from parts prior to installation, and regularly cleaning hydraulic components to remove grease build-up and contaminants.
Arrow Cryogenics, Inc. provides several hydraulic component services to prepare parts for installation and optimize the operating life of your hydraulic system. Whether you need deburring, deflashing, or hardcoat anodizing to improve wear, our team of experts can help. We have over 25 years of experience and use uniquely designed processes to deliver high quality results. Our facility is Nadcap and ISO 9001:2015 certified and we have the expertise to handle jobs of most any size or complexity.
Deflashing and Deburring for Hydraulics Components
Deburring and deflashing for hydraulic components are processes for removing burrs and other residual material after the metal casting process. Valves bodies and other complex hydraulic parts can be difficult or impossible to completely deburr or deflash by hand deburring and other methods, as holes in the interior of these parts are not readily accessible.
We use thermal deburring, cryogenic deflashing and other finishing services to effectively remove burrs and flashing from metal, plastic and rubber hydraulic components. These processes are highly effective at removing excess material from small holes and crevices to produce a clean finished part.
Anodizing Hydraulic Components for Improved Wear Resistance
We provide anodizing and hardcoat anodizing for aluminum hydraulic components. Anodizing aluminum parts improves their corrosion resistance and hardcoat anodizing improves wear resistance. It also makes parts easier to clean and maintain, increases abrasion resistance and improves lubrication. We offer anodizing for hydraulics components of any size and our Type II and III coatings meet MIL-A-8625 specifications. Hydraulic components can also be sealed after anodizing for superior corrosion resistance.
Cleaning Hydraulic Components to Remove Contaminants
Buildup of grease, grime and other contaminants impacts the performance of hydraulic components and can contribute to system failure. Contamination can also occur when hydraulic fluid leaks into hoses and other parts. Another issue is when metal particles contaminate parts after grinding, cutting, drilling and other manufacturing processes. You can help prevent these issues by being proactive and cleaning your hydraulic components as needed, either prior to assembly or as part of your preventative maintenance plan.
Cleaning hydraulic components involves removing debris from components, tubes and hoses using solvents or high frequency vibrations. Once parts are cleaned, they are visually inspected for cleanliness and to identify signs of wear.
Arrow Cryogenics can clean your hydraulic components prior to assembly using ultrasonic cleaning, vapor degreasing, and other methods. Our cleaning services are ideal for seals, gaskets, O-rings, manifolds and similar components, and we can help you determine the best, most effective method for your parts.
