I beleive your question is best answered by the pneumatic cylinder manufacturer.  Most cylinders are not built such that you can perform maintenance.  I have seen an oil-mister in the pneumatic system which acts to supply compressed sir saturated with oil.  This system device requires maintenance (keep it filled with oil).  Most pneumatic cylinders are inexpensive and replacement is not that big of a deal.

How big is the appplication? Pending on the application, the seal should last the life of the cylinder bore, if bored correctly. Again pending on the application. What is it used for?

Hi,

will be easier to contact manufacturer and ask for maintenance kits and instructions.

If you are having problems because the cylinder needs very often to replace components, maybe is not the right one for the application.
