Shaver technology

We offer a shaver that was developed through our R&D department that is a patented metal wiper. This shaver technology offers unmatched performance in certain applications.

Cylinders exposed to extreme environments such as garbage truck compactors are exposed to a lot of contamination, if this contamination is able to enter the hydraulic system severe damage can occur.

Once the hydraulic system is contaminated, all of the associated components can then be severely damaged. Our shaver acts as a barrier to any foreign object entering the cylinder, which then protects the entire hydraulic system.

Shaver characteristics:

  • Patented machined tool steel technology
  • Can prevent hydraulic fluid contamination
  • Removes any foreign objects or substances from cylinder rod surface
  • Shaver is part of a high performance seal configuration
