Fluid Power Journal Features Series of Articles on Standardization

fluid power standardization

Since its founding, the NFPA and the fluid power industry have recognized the value of standards development to simplify the use of fluid power and help assure fluid power system integrity and safety. NFPA continues to serve as the focal point in representing U.S. interests in international standards development as the TC 131 fluid power secretariat and U.S. TAG administrator. Over 140 fluid power industry volunteers participate in standards development committees, and over the past year, a number of these volunteers have also been contributing standards-related content to Fluid Power Journal. The resulting article series can help standards participants and the general public alike better understand the role of standards in the fluid power industry.

The spring series of TAG and ISO meetings begins next week in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Learn more about how you can get involved in standards development and contact Denise Husenica at dhusenica@nfpa.com with any questions.
