The Pascal Society is the annual giving society of the National Fluid Power Association’s Education and Technology Foundation, which works to help meet the U.S. fluid power industry’s workforce development needs.
Two fluid power companies, Schroeder Industries, a manufacturer of liquid filtration products, and its parent company HYDAC, a manufacturer of compressor and generator turbomachinery, recently announced donations in support of the Pascal Society.
Both organizations, global advocates for a cleaner fluid power, pledged an amount equal to 50% of their membership dues. Other donors included authorized Schroeder distributors such as Iowa Fluid Power, Applied Industrial Technologies, Hydra-Power Systems, and SunSource.
The society is named after Blaise Pascal, the French mathematician, physicist, and inventor whose famous law describes fluid power’s force multiplier effect. The society “seeks to create a similar multiplier effect for the fluid power industry,” according to NFPA’s website.
“This program reaches children who are our future, and we need to actively engage their interest in fluid power if we want a shot at creating a sustainable future,” said Timothy Rodman, marketing manager at Schroeder Industries. “That’s what the Pascal Society means to us.”
