Overcoming lockdown challenges to supply essential hydraulic services

- Advertisment -

Hytec Secunda was recently tasked with overseeing the urgent repair of two hydraulic cylinders for a large regional customer.

Working with fellow Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group company Hytec Engineering, the cylinders were delivered and installed in just ten days, despite the challenges of South Africa’s nationwide Covid-19 lockdown over the period, ensuring downtime on these important plant functions was kept to a minimum.

Hytec Secunda was responsible for all site work, as well as transport of the cylinders between the plant and Hytec Engineering’s cylinder manufactory in Johannesburg.

There, the 250/115 x 1060 FF filter press cylinder was overhauled, including stripping, inspection, refurbishment, honing and testing. This cylinder works in a filter press that solidifies gunk and separates the liquid from the solids for further processing.

Hytec Engineering also manufactured a new cylinder for a flopper gate. An older cylinder is also currently being repaired that will be used as the backup cylinder for this equipment in the future.

Hytec Engineering provides end-to-end hydraulic cylinders services for mines and industries across sub-Saharan Africa.
