Fluid Power Journal

Hydraulic and Pneumatic Specialist Study Group Web Seminars

While the nation was hunkered down during quarantine, Tom Blansett, CFPAI, Dan Helgerson, CFPAI, and Ernie Parker, CFPAI, were busy conducting free biweekly online study groups. These recorded presentations are available to IFPS members and are especially helpful to those preparing for a certification test. Visit ifps.org/web-seminars to register and view the presentations and others on safety, pneumatics, actuators, hydraulic valves, electrohydraulics, contamination control, pumps, and more. Registration is free for members.
