Importance of hydraulic cylinder maintenance for lifting platforms

The lifting platform is widely used in high-altitude operations in factories, construction sites, hotels, buildings, airports, stations, stadiums, workshops, warehouses, docks, etc. It can also be used as temporary high-altitude lighting, advertising and other work. While bringing convenience to everyone, it also greatly improves work efficiency.

The normal operation of the hydraulic system of the lifting platform is a major indicator of its good technical condition. It is the heart of the elevator. How to properly maintain the cylinder? Sanneng Xiaobian popularizes for everyone:

1、 the choice of hydraulic oil

If the hydraulic oil is used improperly, it will affect the early failure and durability of the hydraulic system. Therefore, when adding or replacing hydraulic oil, you need to operate the specified instruction manual to purchase the specified hydraulic oil.

2、how to add hydraulic oil

When adding hydraulic oil, it is necessary to do the filtration work. The clean hydraulic oil is the key to the normal operation of the hydraulic system. It is not possible to remove the filter at the fuel filler port in order to increase the speed of refueling.

3、 Prevent solid impurities from falling into the hydraulic system

In order to prevent solid impurities from falling into the hydraulic oil, the refueling personnel need to use clean gloves or refueling tools to prevent solid impurities from being injected into the hydraulic system when refueling; to clean the dirt and impurities around the fuel tank cap; When cleaning the filter, clean the bottom of the filter and wipe it clean to avoid mixing water into the hydraulic fluid.

4、 prevent water from entering the hydraulic oil

If excessive oil is contained in the hydraulic oil, the hydraulic components may be corroded, the hydraulic oil may deteriorate, and the mechanical wear may be accelerated. In addition to preventing moisture intrusion during maintenance, it is also important to note that when the oil storage tank is not in use, the lid should be tightened, preferably placed upside down to prevent water from entering the barrel. If it is found that the water content in the oil is large, it must be filtered after multiple times.

5、prevent air from entering the hydraulic system

Because the air will oxidize the hydraulic oil and accelerate the deterioration of the oil, the oil suction pipe of the hydraulic oil pump must not expose the oil surface, and the oil suction pipe must be well sealed. After maintenance and oil change, the air in the system should be removed according to the random “Instruction Manual” in order to operate normally.

I hope that the above mentioned is helpful to everyone. At the same time, I hope that everyone pays attention to the maintenance of the hydraulic cylinder of the lifting platform, which not only can reduce the failure rate, but also improve the service life and working efficiency of the elevator!
