Saving energy and money with fluid power
Fluid power (hydraulics and pneumatics) is used in dozens of industries and hundreds of applications to precisely control the movement of machinery and material. Yet many engineers and technicians working in those industries do not fully understand the design concepts critical to developing efficient fluid power systems and the diagnostic and maintenance techniques essential to keep those systems operating at peak efficiency. These concepts and techniques can result in significant energy and cost savings for companies that use hydraulics or pneumatics, as well as for the customers they serve, making fluid power a more competitive technology choice.
To help companies take advantage of these opportunities, three leading fluid power organizations—the International Fluid Power Society, the FPDA Motion and Control Network, and the National Fluid Power Association—will be hosting an educational conference at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare in Rosemont, IL on November 27-29, 2012. Professionals responsible for designing and/or maintaining hydraulic and pneumatic systems in industrial settings or mobile applications should plan to attend.
The Fundamentals of Compressed Air Systems
Tuesday, November 27, 2012 - 8:00 am to 5:00 pm
Separate registration fee applies. This hands-on training session, conducted by the Compressed Air Challenge, will show participants how to calculate and reduce the costs of compressed air in their industrial facilities and how to gain better control of compressed air for optimum reliability and productivity
