Hydraulic Pump Repair

Hydraulic pumps are devices that convert a mechanical force into hydraulic energy (fluid flow). You will find hydraulic pumps on all sorts of hydraulic systems where movement of fluid is necessary. Some common examples include oil, water and coolant pumps that move the fluid from a reservoir and circulate it through the system.


While the hydraulic pump itself does not create pressure, it does create the movement (flow) of fluid that in turn creates pressure depending on the restrictiveness of the system and lines. The pressure in the system builds until the pressure of the load is overcome and the fluid is forced through the system.


Due to the moving parts in a hydraulic pump and system, parts can wear out over time. Heat, pressure and vibration can cause mating surfaces to wear and seals and gaskets to deteriorate. When your pumps start to leak or no longer deliver the flow you need, it’s time to have them repaired.
