Seal Saver Application Update - Caterpillar 320

Seal Saver Application Update - Caterpillar 320

 

User/Company:  Key Construction Company - Jackson, MS

Machine:  CAT 320 Excavator

Application:  Bucket and Crowd cylinders

 

Key Construction Company, one of the largest bridge construction companies in Mississippi, was tired of the never-ending cycle of damaged cylinder rods and leaking seals.  When the local Caterpillar dealer (Puckett Machinery Company) introduced them to "SEAL SAVER" protective cylinder cover, they immediately saw the product's potential.  They purchased one to test on the CAT 320BL bucket cylinder, evaluated the product for approximately six months, and then proceeded to protect the rest of their fleet.  Not only will Key Construction Company realize extended cylinder life with less downtime, they will also be stopping the intrusion of dirt into their hydraulic system via the rod wipers.  Contamination is responsible for 70% of hydraulic component failures.  Keeping debris out of the system will not only enhance the hydraulic filter's ability to keep the oil clean, it will also prolong the lives of the equipment's valves and pumps.
