About Us as a Reliable Partner

Quality Control and Testing of Hydraulic Cylinders

Hundreds of customers trust us with the quality of their products. We are sure that together with you we will also achieve success!

FMEA analyse

We try to foresee all possible defects and eliminate them before they occur.

Pressure testing

The test pressure is 1.5-2 times higher than the nominal pressure. No bloating effects or material problems.

2-year warranty

We don't limit you, and the warranty period can even be extended at your request.

Quality Control

In our company we understand very well under what loads and conditions each hydraulic cylinder we produce will work. We know very well that in any mechanism where a hydraulic cylinder is used, it is one of the most important units. Therefore, it must be reliable. That is why we have a simple rule in our production: every hydraulic cylinder we produce must be of high quality and properly tested. This rule always works and is unchangeable.
At Eurobalt Engineering, we have been manufacturing hydraulic cylinders since our company was founded. Hundreds of customers trust us to manufacture hydraulic cylinders for their machines and equipment. Therefore, we apply quality control at all levels of production and no batch of hydraulic cylinders leaves the factory without prior testing. Customer requirements for specific lifting capacity, pressure resistance and temperature performance can only be achieved through quality control. As a customer-oriented company, we use both mechanized complexes and the involvement of quality control engineers. This allows us to ensure that all cylinders in a batch are identical and comply with the common European normative standards and those of the customer for each individual order.
quality marks

The high quality standards of our hydraulic cylinders are achieved through several stages of control, from the raw materials entering production to the finished product:

  • managment icon Pre-production inspection: This process involves the inspection of incoming raw materials. Raw materials are inspected to ensure that the material meets standards and customer requirements. PPI helps establish production schedules and assures new customers that raw materials meet standards. Inspection is performed by our quality control engineers who analyze the material to ensure that it meets the standards of the material grade.
  • managment icon Inspection during production: All hydraulic cylinders are made up of different parts. These are manufactured using different methods and in different production departments. Therefore, all these parts are inspected and marked at each stage of production. This way we always know when, where and by whom a part was made. If a defect is found, the cause and the defect itself are eliminated immediately. The parts are inspected again before the hydraulic cylinder is reassembled.
  • managment icon Failure Mode and Effects Analysis: An FMEA analysis collects and analyzes as much data as possible. We analyze problems that occurred during the warranty period (if any). We predict problems that may occur during shipping or storage, various changes in the operating conditions of our products, and other possible factors. All of this data is entered into a special database and an overall analysis and prediction of failures is made. This allows us to predict failures and take action in advance. FMEA allows us to maintain an efficiency level of 99.4 percent for all hydraulic cylinder parts we produce.
  • managment icon Seals and Quality Control: We source our seals from reputable suppliers with extensive manufacturing experience to ensure optimal performance. We consider the customer's seal preferences for all hydraulic cylinder production. If the customer delegates the seal selection to us, we use seals from Trelleborg or Hallite manufacturers. Once the seals are installed and the cylinders are assembled, we conduct a final quality control check to verify their proper functionality. If no visible leaks are found, the quality inspector monitors the packaging of the hydraulic cylinders as requested by the customer.

Testing of Hydraulic Cylinders

Quality control ensures that our hydraulic cylinder production meets a high standard. The finished product undergoes testing to ensure it meets required pressure, operating temperature, and other parameters before being shipped to the customer. Quality control is a crucial step in production as the reliability and quality of the hydraulic cylinder forms the foundation of our production. Here are the standard testing procedures conducted in all Eurobalt facilities to instill confidence in our reliability as a partner and the dependability of our hydraulic cylinder manufacturing.


All hydraulic cylinders are thoroughly tested to detect internal and external leaks. 100% of cylinders go through this process: each cylinder is opened and closed to check that parts are within acceptable levels and that seals are holding. We also provide extra seals with each batch and cylinder disassembly kits, just in case.


To make sure there are no bloating effects or material problems, a pressure test is performed that is 1.5 times the normal operating pressure of the cylinder in service. It is not recommended that a hydraulic cylinder be operated above its rated working pressure, but the test makes sure that there is no internal bloat or distortion during the intended use of the cylinder. This test extends the piston rods as far as they will go and keeps them under pressure for a period of time. This helps assure the quality and integrity of the seals. Oil leaks lead to reduced performance of hydraulic cylinders, so we take special care to make sure all cylinders are leak-proof and stay that way during the warranty period.


The test stand is used to measure the pressure exerted by the cylinder. To measure the impact force, the cylinder is pushed against a barrier. For double-acting cylinders, the reverse pulling force is also measured, and all figures and test results are provided to the customer upon request.

After verifying the quality of the assembly of the manufactured batch and performing the entire set of tests, we provide a 2-year warranty on all cylinders. The warranty period can be extended at the customer's request. All this is an additional guarantee for our customers that the cylinders purchased from our company are trustworthy.
