The single best fluid power reference source available to industry is the Fluid Power Handbook & Directory. For over 50 years, this biennial publication has served engineers and technicians with the most comprehensive information available.
The first section features Engineering Data that includes brief explanations of how fluid power components work. For example, if you want to learn more about hydraulic pumps, go to page A/5 and you will find a technical explanation of the mechanical device that converts mechanical power into hydraulic energy. It generates flow with enough power to overcome pressure induced by the load.
And that kind of information goes on for 126 pages. If you go to our online version of the book you will find more great fluid power engineering data that would fill another 128 printed pages. Your cost for this great information is exactly free.
Now turn to the Directory section of the book where we provide a Manufacturers Directory and a Product Directory. Again, online versions of both are offered on our website that can be accessed from our homepage under Fluid Power Handbook & DirectoryManufacturers Directory. Here you will discover which companies offer which components.
Finally, we present the Local Sources or distributor section of the publication. This starts on page C/1 and gives you a geographical listing of fluid power distributors. Again, please go ahead and access the information on our website at Fluid Power Handbook & DirectoryDistributor Directory.
