Common Problems with Loading Dock Levelers
Maintaining your loading dock levelers is an important part of using it. However, you may encounter issues if you don’t follow proper instructions. Here and five common hydraulics problems:
Unneeded oil changes and using the wrong type of oil.
You should only alter the oil in your hydraulic equipment on two particular times: a basement of the base oil or shrinkage of the additive package. If you want to see if you need to perform a change of oil, you’ll need to do an oil analysis. Don’t overdo it with changing oil and you’ll save a lot of money and extend the life of your machine. Also, you need to ensure you’re using the right kind of oil.
Changing the filters very often.
As with oil, filters also need to be replaced, but you can’t just do it at any time you feel like it. If you change filters too early, you are wasting money since the holding volume limit has not been reached. If you don’t alter the filters on time, the oil gets filled up with particles and dirt that will slow down the machine down.
Overworking the engine
When the hydraulic system gets too hot, you need to stop using the equipment. Every system is different. If you want to avoid overworking the engine, you need to rely on the viscosity index of the oil. This is the changing rate of viscosity with temperature. When oil heats up, its thickness reduces and goes under what is required to stay lubricated, and the engine becomes overused.
Waiting for the equipment to prime itself
Lubrication is vital when working with hydraulic equipment, but it’s not going to prime itself. Make sure that your machine stays well lubricated before using it. If you don’t, you have the risk of damaging the whole system, and you’ll hear some nasty noises.
Not knowing how to use the equipment properly
Get proper training for the hydraulic equipment, if you don’t, you have the risk of coming into the problems mentioned before. Knowing about your gear, and how to maintain it, will help you to avoid problems as you go through your work day.
