A variety of fluid power topics - in August

At Fluid Power World, we look at all aspects of fluid power systems and all of the components involved to make them work.  The best way to design, maintain, and operate an efficient and productive machine or vehicle is by understanding the whole system from tank to actuator or, in the case of pneumatic systems, from compressor to actuator.

In our August issue, we will feature four very important and relevant topics for fluid power.  First, we will feature an article on the Marine and Offshore Industry.  Our technology continues to play a vital role in the energy markets both offshore and onshore.  We will also review the contributions of hydraulics to work boats and show how and where fluid power is the best design choice.



For our component spotlight, we will take a look at fluid power seals and sealing devices.This important component is essential to keeping hydraulic and pneumatic systems as leak free as possible.  We continue to see innovation in the use of compounds and configurations to accomplish the job. 



We will further our product coverage by doing a review of pneumatic cylinders, how they function, and how they are best selected for the job.  Selecting the right cylinder is essential for system optimization and safety.  Making the right cylinder choice enhances the performance of the overall system.

In the area of market coverage, two of the largest end use markets for in-plant fluid power systems both hydraulic and pneumatic are the automotive and steel-making industries.  There are many interesting and useful stories about the very successful application of fluid power technology that come from these two industries and we will examine a few of them
