Save Your Cylinders

REDCO™ SEAL SAVER* (*patented)

“SEAL SAVER” is a protective cylinder cover that has proven to extend the cylinder life three-fold and beyond. This simple to install product (no disassembly of the cylinder is required) is now being utilized around the world in the toughest environments (quarries, mining, steel mills, demolition, ready mix concrete, etc.).



The *patented “SEAL SAVER”* opens and closes like an accordion as the cylinder works. It keeps dirt, sand, and grit (all of which cause scoring and damage to the seals) off the rod. The hidden feature to this product is that it keeps the silt-sized particles from entering the hydraulic system via the seals and contaminating the system. Once in the system, these silt-sized particles act as a lapping compound. It is this build-up that begins wearing on the valves and pumps. 700f hydraulic system failures are caused by contaminated (dirty) oil. If you stop the ingress of these contaminants, the oil filter can do it’s job (keep the system clean).

Depending on the application, several types of materials are used to manufacture this unique product. In addition to the standard Ballistic woven nylon, special materials include Kevlar (for very abrasive conditions), Aluminized Kevlar (for high abrasion and heat), and two grades of Aluminized Silica Cloth (for high heat and extremely high heat). When determining if you should use this type of protection, you should consider the price of replacing or rebuilding a cylinder, as well as the labor and downtime costs involved. When you add it all up, this product is simply “Intelligent Preventative Maintenance”.

DESIGNED TO FIT: Case, Caterpillar, Chute Cylinders, Daewoo, Hitachi, John Deere, Kawasaki, Kobelco, Komatsu, Liebherr, Linkbelt, Ready Mix Concrete Equipment, Volvo
