Is your hydraulic cylinder leaking around the piston rod?
Often the seals wear just enough to let particles of the seal into the oil and the then those little pieces actually help wear the seal out even further like small pieces of grit in the oil - and let it leak just a little and then more, and then more . . . BUT . . . USUALLY . . . it's not junk yet!!
This fluid can be used to replace the hydraulic fluid, remove the seal grit and the old seal particles, and then condition the seal and stop the leak. It cannot be guaranteed to work on every leak - for instance if you let it get too far gone - BUT - hey it sealed the leak on an Endolite Adaptive 2 hydraulic cylinder that had lost all it's oil and had no resistance or hydraulic operation any longer at all. Sometimes it takes a few "top-off" fills, and every cylinder cannot be filled easily and then get the air out too - but most Mauch and Hosmer and CA Tech (Endolite) cylinders can.
You CANNOT use this on a Rheo Knee or Plie 2.0, nor a C-leg IF you want Otto Bock to ever service it again. The Rheo has special magnetic fluid so that is why there, the Plie 2.0 has a thick fluid and that is why there, and any work on a C-Leg by non Otto Bock factory personnel will "junk" the unit in Otto Bock's eyes, and they will not touch it again but for "maybe" a full rebuild.
This fluid has been tested on SNS style cylinders and normally seals a leak within 2 weeks. The piston will ride dry and no oil will be on top of the cylinder.
Comes with filling and bleeding instructions for Mauch, Mauch like CA Tech and Hosmer cylinders. Hosmer small units, like the 70465, 59797, 52211, or 60030 need 2 ozs or less, and 160 and 180 size Mauch style units need about 4 ozs.
You should replace all the fluid, which you will usually notice is brown or black - and that is because small particles of the old seal is suspended like polite "grit" in the oil. .5 hours tech support credit with every 4 oz purchased 2 fluid ounces. New formula color is actually Blue.
