Registration is open for the Thursday, December 2, NFPA/FPIC Quarterly Conference on “Advanced Technologies for Eco-Friendly Fluid Power Systems.” This program will be a live webinar using the Remo Online Conference Platform and features a look at several innovations in fluid power.
The half-day event begins at 8 a.m. with a brief welcome and icebreaker and allows for short networking breaks throughout the morning to allow attendees to break into rooms for meetings at virtual tables. These tables will be shuffled every minutes to allow attendees chances to meet with as many attendees as possible.
Technical presentations include:
8:30 – 9:20 a.m. — “Sustainability & Manufacturing – Schroeder Industries’ 2030 Initiatives & Products,” presented by Chris Bortnik; V. P. Engineering; Schroeder Industries. Schroeder is committed to delivering its advanced fluid conditioning solutions in a clearly defined sustainable platform. It’s called Schroeder 2030. The initiatives, services and products provide fluid system designers and operators with a direct pathway to carbon neutrality and better profitability.
Schroeder is designing and delivering the energy efficient, volume reducing solutions for high horsepower off-highway equipment or high-volume industrial fluid systems. These solutions are supported by fluid diagnostic tools and a portfolio of services that can significantly reduce and prolong the useful life of almost every fluid type. This accomplished by reducing the volume of fluid used in a system or by reducing, and in some cases eliminating, the frequency of liquid disposal. The following fluid system solutions will be discussed:
- Energy-Saving (E-Drive Filtration Media): Lowest energy loss at a given level of Filtration
- Hydraulic Reservoir Optimization with Air from Oil Filtration Solutions & advanced reservoir modeling: Volume Reductions of up to 78% through air removal
- Asset Management Filtration Station (AMFS): Smart Filtration systems to extend oil drains
- No Oil Left Behind (N.O.L.B.): Automated and mobile PAG Compressor waste oil recycling units
- Schroeder Industries’ Filtration Management as a Service (FMaaS)
Case studies using Schroeder 2030 Initiatives for OEM and MRO customers will highlight their ability to deliver clean power & cleaner energy to their customers and the consumers.
9:40 – 10:30 a.m. — “4 techniques to achieve Eco-Friendly Fluid Power System design for Industrial Machinery,” presented by Neal Gigliotti; Application Engineering Manager; Bosch Rexroth Corp. In today’s competitive manufacturing environment, having an efficient source of machine power is a necessary requirement. This presentation will discuss modern hydraulic drive technology and “new” engineering techniques that are used to achieve increased efficiencies, noise reduction, and reduced oil volume with lower cooling requirements.
Case studies will be presented focusing on the benefits of these techniques.
10:50 – 11:40 a.m. — “Electronification of Mobile Equipment – Impact and Opportunities on the Fluid Power Industry,” presented by Marty Christianson; Market Manager E-Mobility/AE Cooling Systems; HYDAC Corp. The removal of the internal combustion engine in favor of an electronic option is often referred to as an electrification of the vehicle. The movement of electrification has been prevalent in the automotive industry for over ten years. We are now seeing that electrification movement gaining momentum in mobile equipment that consumes a significant amount of fluid power components. Therefore, the fluid power industry is beginning to see the positive and negative impacts on their business with this growing trend.
This presentation will review the major market trends in electrification; for example, battery and fuel cell power sources and the required infrastructure for each. The presentation will discuss the impact on the hydraulic circuitry when the internal combustion engine and its limitation are removed. Transitional phases that most companies will go through as they evolve the hydraulics circuity will also be reviewed. There will be a major focus on hydraulic efficiency, productivity and weight reduction. Areas of opportunities for fluid power on the work functions, as well on new opportunities based on the integration on new technologies (for example – battery cooling, hydrogen filtration and pressure sensing) will be highlighted.
HYDAC designs and manufactures a comprehensive line of innovative and reliable hydraulic, electronic, control and fluid conditioning solutions optimized for mobile and industrial applications. They have been focusing on fluid power solutions for the electrification market including hydraulics, electronics, cooling and filtration technologies. Several solutions include the following:
- Valving solutions design on efficiency
- Filtration on hydraulics and hydrogen media
- Cooling solutions for batteries, fuel cells and hydraulic fluid
- Hydraulic power units to drive work functions, steering and braking
- Accumulator solutions to store energy increasing vehicle efficiency
- Electronic solutions for controlling the vehicle control system along
Case studies will be presented showing increased system efficiency and educed energy usage.
