MORE HOURS. HIGHER PRODUCTIVITY. LOWER COST.

Cat® hydraulic systems feature extremely tight tolerances and higher system pressures, enabling our machines to achieve higher breakout forces and unsurpassed productivity levels. Awareness and preventive maintenance are critical to ensure harmful contaminants are kept out of the hydraulic system—protecting pumps, valves and other hydraulic system components from costly damage, which can directly impact your productivity and operating costs.


UNDERSTAND THE VALUE OF PERFORMING LOWER-LEVEL REPAIRS

Historically, 75%-85% of hydraulic system failures can be traced to contamination.
Acting early on repair indicators and performing lower-level repairs discovered
through historical data, inspections, condition monitoring alerts and S·O·SSM
fluid analysis results are key to keeping you up and running and avoiding costly,
higher-level repairs.

A damaged cylinder rod or a leaking seal can provide an entry point for harmful
contaminates into your hydraulic system, causing extensive damage and resulting
in catastrophic pump, motor or valve failure.Therefore, it is important to resolve
issues early to prevent unplanned downtime and repair.

Advantages of Completing Lower-level Hydraulic Repairs

• Restores productivity by ensuring faster cycle times
• Reduces the chance of contamination by stopping dirt from entering the system
• Protects pump, motor and valve life
• Enhances operator control
• Restores fuel efficiency to its optimal level, reducing your fuel costs
• .Allows you to schedule downtime, and plan for maintenance and repair costs
• Avoids catastrophic failure
