With over 35 years of experience at High Tech Chrome Plating, Inc., we have encountered a vast spectrum of damage inflicted upon hydraulic rods and industrial rollers. We understand that determining the repairability of a rod may not always be evident. Many heavy equipment repair facilities, manufacturers, mills, and construction companies are prematurely replacing hydraulic rods and rollers that could have been successfully repaired. Considering that repair costs typically amount to 60-70% less than replacement, the implications for businesses are significant.

In this comprehensive guide, we explore five common types of damage frequently found on cylinder rods and industrial rollers. Each type will be accompanied by a description outlining the circumstances under which repair is a viable option. Our aim is to empower industry professionals by providing them with the knowledge needed to make informed decisions and unlock the cost-saving potential of hydraulic rod and roller repairs.
