ISO 7241:2014 which specifies the interface dimensions and basic performance requirements for two series of hydraulic quick-action couplings has recently been published.
This Standard provides users of hydraulic components with a standardized method to help reduce the environmental impact of fluid power components and systems.
The two series of hydraulic quick-action couplings are in widespread use and have similar technological advantages. Series A is used predominantly in Europe and is preferred worldwide for agricultural and forestry machinery, and also specifies additional requirements for use in agricultural machinery applications covered in ISO 5675. Series B is used predominantly in North America and in the chemical industry.

NFPA recently met with Matt Purdy, the Director of Career Services at Murray State University. In this webinar, we discussed several ways to get in contact with university students looking to join the fluid power industry. Although our conversation was specifically with Murray State, the information that was discussed can be applied to reaching students…
This fall, NFPA’s schedule of Regional Meetings again includes Cleveland, scheduled for Thursday, November 3. This year it will be held at Merwin’s Wharf in downtown Cleveland. NFPA Regional Meetings offer a chance to meet with other area fluid power professionals over dinner. NFPA members and non-members alike are welcome to attend and as with all other…
