Fluid Power Conference & Expo co-located at WasteExpo

May 20th - 21st, 2013 • New Orleans, LA

Past Event:

The Fluid Power Conference & Expo co-locates at WasteExpo, which will be held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans May 20-23. The event will feature more than 550 exhibitors, and numerous conference sessions targeted to fleet operators and maintenance personnel.

Because hydraulics are used heavily in waste reduction and recycling machinery and vehicles, The Fluid Power Conference & Expo will offer a variety of topics on hydraulic fundamentals, symbols, circuits, schematics, and troubleshooting. The Conference will be held the first two days of WasteExpo.

Introduction to Hydraulics 1

Advantages of hydraulics; system operation; flow, pressure, speed, force, and torque; major components — pumps, valves, conductors, actuators, filters, fluids, reservoirs; symbology (reading schematics) and component interactions.
Presented by: CFC Industrial Training

 

Manufacturing Benefits of Ductile Iron Components in High Pressure Systems
Until recently, pressure ratings for ductile iron components were based on book values and theoretical calculations and have been somewhat conservative. This presentation will highlight the manufacturing benefits that can be gained by using continuously cast ductile iron bar stock for ductile iron components. The recent developments being done at Milwaukee School of Engineering determining the pressure ratings for ductile iron will also be presented.
Presented by: Dura-Bar 

Introduction to Hydraulics 2

Discrete, proportional, and servo control; directional, pressure, and flow-control circuits; energy-saving circuits; pump controls; electronic controls and sensors; hydrostatic drives; contamination and filtration.
Presented by: CFC Industrial Training

 

Hydraulic Components & Systems 1

A more in-depth discussion of hydraulic components, circuits, controls, and their interactions, with emphasis on contamination control to improve system reliability and reduce machine downtime and operating costs.
Presented by: CFC Industrial Training

 

Hydraulic Components & Systems 2

Additional discussion of hydraulic components, circuits, controls, and their interactions, with emphasis on system and component troubleshooting and predictive and preventive maintenance to get more work out of equipment.
Presented by: CFC Industrial Training

 

Hydraulics in Mobile Equipment

Just about any heavy equipment that moves relies on hydrostatic drives. This session explores the operation of hydrostatic and implement drives used in excavators, dozers, loaders, and specialized mobile equipment, such as shredders, crushers, and grinders.
Presented by: CFC Industrial Training

 

Hydraulics in Stationary Equipment

Hydraulics is essential to the operation of balers, shredders, crushers, grinders, conveyors and other equipment used in waste disposal and recycling. This session examines some of the hydraulic circuits used in these powerful machines.
Presented by: CFC Industrial Training

 

Booth Tour

Attendees will be invited to an optional tour of a booth showing the real-world application of hydraulics in waste reduction equipment on the show floor.
