Fluid Power Training Seminars

F700 Basic Pneumatics

Seminar Duration:  2-3 Days

This is a three-day course designed to familiarize maintenance personnel with pneumatics as they relate to industrial machinery.  Students will learn how pneumatic components work and how to properly  maintain pneumatic systems.  Hydraulics is also offered as one of our fluid power training seminars.


Some of the key topics covered are:

Force Transmission Through a Fluid 

Energy Transmission Using Pneumatics 

Control of Pneumatic Energy 

Compressor Types 

Air Distribution Systems 

Operation of Pneumatic Components - cylinders, etc.  

Directional Control Valves 

Flow Controls 

Regulators 

Various Hands-On Exercises to Demonstrate Principles

F701 Basic Hydraulics

Seminar Duration:  2-3 Days


This is a three-day course  designed to familiarize maintenance personnel with hydraulics as it  relates to industrial machinery. Students will work with fluid power  principles and experience the functional characteristics of hydraulic  components, which include pumps, flow control valves, pressure valves,  directional control valves, cylinders, etc. Proper maintenance of  hydraulic systems along with troubleshooting techniques will be discussed.


Some of the key topics covered are:


Hydraulic Transmission of Force and Energy

Hydraulic Fluids
Operation of Hydraulic Pumps
Hydraulic Actuators – cylinders, motors
Control of Hydraulic Pressure
Check Valves, Flow Control Valves
Directional Control Valves
Pilot Operated Control Valves
Reservoirs, Coolers, Filters
Various Hands-On Props and Exercises to Demonstrate Principles
