In All

Most production systems may not function well without a hydraulic pump. A well-maintained pump can service you for over 6 years without breaking down, but even with good maintenance, the device will still malfunction. Proactive maintenance involves detecting possible issues or problems and fixing them. Just like with any other machinery, pumps give off early signs indicating it’s time for fixing. Titan Mid America provides repair and maintenance services for broken pumps. Also, there are reasons why you should rent instead of buying if you do not already own one.

In the meantime, here are some of the common signs that your pump may be in need of fixing.


Liquids should not flow out of your system. There are internal tubes designed for distributing oil and any other liquid in the machine. Presence of leaking oil may be a sign of a broken line or a loose seal. No matter what “engineers” suggest, get your pump fixed immediately when leaks are detected.


Heating causes high fluid temperatures, meaning the system may be having heat dissipating issues. Normally, pumps use the reservoir fluid to dissipate heat through a heat exchange. Excess internal heat makes the reservoir fluid thin, hindering lubrication, causing leaks, reducing energy efficiency & overall performance.


If your pump is taking longer to perform routine tasks, it’s a sign that it needs to be fixed. There are many probable reasons why it could be acting up. Internal fluids may have become thin, needing changing, or there could be underlying mechanical issues to be fixed.


This occurs when hydraulic fluid is contaminated by air which enters through the inlet and begins circulating in the system, causing abnormal noises when the pump compresses or decompresses.
