Special Invitation to Discuss Energy Efficiency (Hydraulic Power Loss) in Systems

Since November 2013, an ad hoc group of the U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 131 for Fluid Power Systems has been meeting by teleconference to discuss the feasibility of creating Standards for determining power consumption of components within the fluid power industry. To date, the focus has been to explore the possibility of adding such methods to current ISO fluid power standards.

In 2015 we would like to broaden our focus to systems and include input from fluid power users and distributors, as well as manufacturers. An in-person meeting has been scheduled in January for discussion among all stakeholders on the energy efficiency and power loss in hydraulic systems. The members of the US TAG to SC 2 and SC 9 are also encouraged to attend the full day meeting because it will concentrate on hydraulic pumps and hydraulic systems.

Date/Time:  Tuesday, January 13 from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Agenda and Supporting Documents will be e-mailed to participants before Christmas.

The location will be Milwaukee, but the meeting facility will depend on the number of participants indicating interest. Therefore, please RSVP to Denise Rockhill at drockhill@nfpa.com as soon as possible.
