The World of Fluid Power & Fluid Handling

The melding of fluid power and electrical control is bringing energy-use optimization to fluid power systems. But engineers must not overlook the contributions of more mundane system components, such as hoses and even bearings. Savings gained by a speed-controlled pump, for example, can easily be cancelled by an unexpected hose or bearing failure. This presentation will address a range of fluid power issues, from digital prototyping and compressed air optimization to hose diagnostics and bearing analysis.

Presented by Jim Brennan, News Anchor, GlobalSpec


Everything You Wanted to Know about Bearings but Were Afraid to Ask –

Sponsored by Emerson Bearing Co.

A quick review of the components that make up fluid power and fluid handling systems - hydraulic power units, air compressors, hydraulic pumps and motors, plus air and hydraulic actuators - underscores the critical role bearings play in the fluid power industry. This presentation will help attendees understand the process of bearing selection in relation to the application, learn how to benefit from today's worldwide sourcing and supply chain, and better evaluate why a bearing may have failed prematurely. In addition, the presentation will describe how engineers can apply bearing failure analysis to correct problems, prevent equipment failure, and predict reliability.

Presented by Steve Katz, President, Emerson Bearing Co.


1:30 PM - 2:30 PM EDT (10:30 AM - 11:30 AM PDT)

Protect Your Fluid Power Investment with a Hose Diagnostic/Monitoring System

Join Timothy Deans of Gates Fluid Power as he discusses hose system challenges and outlines preventive maintenance strategies. In particular, he will introduce the concept of a complete hose diagnostic and monitoring system.

Presented by Timothy Deans, Product Application Engineer, Gates Fluid Power


Why Digital Prototyping Improves Pump Design

Gone are the days when product testing was done with physical prototypes. Today, computational fluid dynamics, working in concert with 3D CAD, enables digital testing and interactive design.

Presented by Mark Decker, Vertical Team Leader, Rotating Machinery & Pumps Group, Blue Ridge Numerics


3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT (12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PDT)

How to Optimize Your Compressed Air System

Find out why your lubricated screw compressor system may be generating big energy costs while giving poor plant pressure. Attention to compressor operating modes, system storage capacity, component pressure differential, and other system characteristics can gain huge improvements.

Presented by Ron Marshall, Industrial Systems Officer, Manitoba Hydro


4:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT (1:00 PM - 3:00 PM PDT)

• Interact with Attendees and Exhibitors in the Exhibit Hall and Networking Lounge.

• Presentations available On-Demand.
