The best hydraulics solution.

At Cava Hydralics, we are the complete Hydraulic Solution for all your Fluid Power Systems, including:

  • Sales and Service.
  • Lubrication Specialists.
  • Cylinder Manufacture and Rebuild.
  • Power Unit Manufacture.
  • Filtration Specialists

From mining, industrial and private enterprise, we’ve got you covered.

We have a large well-appointed workshop in Mount Isa with machine, fabrication and assembly areas. We also have a large clean room for assembly, testing and repair of all critical parts.

The correct filtration is critical.

Selecting the correct type of filtration is critical in reducing downtime, extending the normal working life of the equipment and thus presenting a huge cost saving. The correct filter for a system should be maintained and if the system is working well with the correct filter, it should not block readily.

 

If a system with the correct filter blocks, it can be an early warning sign that something is wrong and could be about to fail, making regular servicing crucial for your business.

Reliability you can trust.

In conjunction with regular oil analysis, the correct filtration will greatly improve machinery reliability and extend the working life of the components in the system be it a hydraulic or lubrication system.

Cylinder Manufacture, Supply, Repair and Rebuild.

At Cava Hydralics we have the capacity to Manufacture, Supply, Repair and Rebuild and test all types of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. We have the capability to:

  • Manufacture new rods, pistons and glands.
  • Hone cylinder barrels up to 10” diameter and 3M long.
  • Repair, rebuild and reclaim trunnions and clevises.

Power Unit Manufacture.

We can supply and manufacture hydraulic power units of any size from a small DC Auxiliary pump to a very large and complex system. We have built a full stainless-steel system and enclosure for use with water glycol fire retardant fluid. Water glycol is used instead of mineral hydraulic oil on systems that work in close proximity to very high heat and naked flames.

Lubrication Systems Manufacture and Upgrades.

We can supply, manufacture and upgrade all types of oil and grease lubrication systems for grinding mills bearing lube, gearbox lube, roller bearings lube using many different heavy oil viscosities and types of grease.

Flushing Rig for Commissioning and Pressure Testing.

We have built our own 250L/min flushing rig with a pressure test capacity of 300Bar. This unit can flush up to 1” bore lines of new and existing pipework that has become contaminated down to an ISO4406 code of 15/13/10, ensuring pipe work is cleaned down to a satisfactory level prior to being connected with the hydraulic or lubrication system.

Hydralic Cylinder Specialists

Cava Hydraulics are hydraulic cylinder specialists. From cylinder design to specialist material procurement, machining, assembly and testing. Cava Hydralics manufacture and repair hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders for all functions. Cava Hydralics will also recommend and implement improvements to existing customer cylinders, including the supply of hand made rod boots to protect the cylinder rods from damage due to the extreme environments, we work in and with.

A Case Study

One customer was experiencing weekly failures of multiple cylinders. These cylinders operate in a high temperature extreme environment. The cylinder design was reviewed and redesigned using the latest in high temp low friction seal materials, the installation of a bronze scraper on the wiper and a Kevlar rod boot. The cylinders now last 2 – 3 months before requiring any maintenance. Cava Hydralics always reviews each cylinder on a case-by-case basis.
