How to Make a Positive Impact in 2016 BY RANDALL (RANDY) D. SMITH, CFPHS 2016 FPEF Chairman

Now that the holiday rush has ended, we settle into the New Year and brace ourselves for the onslaught of winter. It is now, when the hustle and bustle is over, that I find myself nestling down in front of the fire, reflecting back on the old year and thinking about what I want to do to make the New Year better. Who has positively influenced me, and how can I positively influence others? This past year, my oldest son, Joshua, earned his Eagle Badge in Boy Scouts, applied to the Coast Guard Academy, and earned some scholarships to attend a few great schools. He ultimately ended up going to school at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. As you may have guessed, I am very proud of him and his accomplishments! I am also very impressed by a few of his fellow Eagle Scout buddies. One went to Purdue University, and two others went to the community college as a stepping-stone to other universities. However, there was one of my son’s Boy Scout friends whose decision about his future really caught my interest. This young man walked up to his parents after graduation and said that he really didn’t want to embark on this four-year journey, go into debt, and not be guaranteed a job in the end. He already had a job doing mechanic work he enjoyed, and he wanted to learn a trade. He was offered the opportunity to apprentice in the shop while he put his application into the union training program. The first time this boy interviewed for the training program, he was selected. This company knew this young man had the focus to follow through. He was proven. What bothered me were a few of the comments I heard from other people judging his success on whether or not he went to college. Learning a trade was not in their definition of being successful. This young man is going to learn a trade where he can earn good money, have benefits, and have a career. He is going to contribute to the local economy, volunteer in the local church and community organizations, buy a home, start a family in the area where he grew up, and continue building a lifetime of memories with family and friends. If that isn’t the definition of success, I don’t know what is! How many of you started your careers the same way? Perhaps you started with a local fluid power business, learned the trade, and earned promotions as you gained experience. Maybe you joined the International Fluid Power Society and became certified in one or more aspects of fluid power. Despite the challenges, you found your path and made a career. Who was that person or mentor in your life who became pivotal in your success? Who gave you that hand-up? What can you do to give someone else that handup? At Christmas, we give handouts because it just feels good. Now that Christmas is over, let’s give a hand-up and make a real difference in someone’s life. Join me, as the 2016 chairman of the Fluid Power Educational Foundation, in giving a hand-up to students attending classes in fluid power. Let’s give a hand-up to our returning veterans who are starting a new career. Let’s give a hand-up by helping the FPEF scholarship recipients start a new career in our industry. Log on to www.FPEF. org and make a donation today to make a true difference in the lives of our future fluid power professionals.

THE PHOTO CONTEST

The International Fluid Power Society (IFPS) has dedicated June 19 as “Fluid Power Professionals' Day” - a day of recognition for all of us who work in the fluid power field! It has been said that fluid power is a “hidden giant” because it is so common in every aspect of our day-to-day existence that we have simply overlooked the obvious. There is not a vehicle, ship, plane, or train that can operate without fluid power. There is no consumer item, no electronic gadget, and no morsel of food we grow that can exist in enough quantity at a cost we can afford without the use of fluid power and our efforts.

Why June 19th? A little bit of history behind the date is interesting. Blaise Pascal—a French mathematician, inventor, writer, and physicist—was born on this day clear back in 1623. His work in hydrodynamics and hydrostatics, including the invention of the hydraulic press, paved the way for all future innovations.

ECONOMIC REPORT

Global Manufacturing Update BY CHAD MOUTRAY, Ph.D., CBE, Chief Economist, National Association of Manufacturers

December 2015 – The latest National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) quarterly survey found that 59.6% of respondents were positive about their own company’s outlook, down sharply from 91.2% one year ago. Export expectations help to explain much of the deceleration in the economic outlook for the sector. Of those companies that anticipated increased exports over the next 12 months, 75.4% were positive in their outlook in this survey. In contrast, the percentage of respondents who were positive fell to 61.7% for those expecting their exports to remain the same and to 39.1% for those predicting decreased exports over the next year. Overall, respondents expect relatively flat export growth in 2016. Along those lines, 57.9% said that the recent slowdown in global growth had negatively impacted their in-

ternational sales. Indeed, manufactured goods exports have declined 6.1% year-todate through October in 2015, including to our top four markets. In addition to the stronger U.S. dollar, the weaker international demand in large part reflects soft economic conditions abroad. Manufacturing activity expanded in half of the top 10 markets for U.S.-manufactured goods exports for the month, with the other half experiencing contractions. This has been unchanged since July, and the challenge remains that many of the nations in negative territory have been there for much of this year. Manufacturers in Brazil, for instance, reported a further deterioration in new orders and output, with its PMI falling to its lowest level since March 2009. Activity continued to decline in Canada, China, Hong Kong, and South Korea. Moreover, the emerging markets have now contracted for eight straight months, with only the Czech Republic and Poland standing out as bright spots. Overall, manufacturing activity continued to expand, albeit at a pace of growth that remains far from robust. The J.P. Morgan Global Manufacturing PMI edged slightly lower, down from 51.4 in October to 51.3 in November, but each month reflected improvements after softer data in August and September. The October reading, for example, had represented a six-month high, and in November, output picked up a little, expanding at its fastest rate since March. One area where conditions appear to be moving in the right direction overall is Europe, but even there, global challenges persist. The Markit Eurozone Manufacturing PMI increased to its highest level since April 2014, with key indicators higher across the board. With the exception of Greece, manufacturers reported expanding levels activity in every major market, even for those that experienced some easing in growth rates in November. Sentiment in Germany, Italy, and Spain improved for the month on decent demand and production growth. With that said, real GDP grew 0.3% in the third quarter, slowing from 0.4% growth in the second quarter, and retail sales were off by 0.1% in October. In addition, the unemployment rate remained highly elevated despite falling to 10.7% in October, its lowest rate since January 2012. Along those lines, the European Central Bank (ECB) remains concerned enough about sluggish growth and a very low annual inflation rate to lower its key interest rate and expand its quantitative eas-

ing program through March 2017. These moves were less than financial markets anticipated, however, prompting speculation of further ECB moves down the line. In contrast to these moves (and similar stimulative moves in other nations), the Federal Reserve is likely to begin raising short-term interest rates at its next meeting, with further increases expected in 2016. More than half of respondents to the most recent NAM survey worry about such a move at the December 15-16 Federal Open Market Committee meeting, hoping that the Federal Reserve would wait for better manufacturing data before acting. More than anything, this likely speaks to current concerns over the global economic outlook, and it also speaks to the strength in the U.S. dollar, something that is exacerbated by the diverging monetary policy strategies of the Federal Reserve and its foreign counterparts. After more than a five-month lapse, the President signed into law a multi-year reauthorization of the Export-Import (ExIm) Bank of the United States. Congress is preparing to act this week on new trade facilitation and enforcement legislation. Congress may also potentially repeal provisions on Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) for meat that are contrary to international rules. Next week, the World Trade Organization (WTO) holds its 10th Ministerial Conference in Nairobi, Kenya, with few concrete outcomes likely. Discussions continue between the Obama administration and Congress on the path for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement, while the next round of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) talks will await the new year.

TRAINING

FOCUS

A tool supplier called one day asking for help. A fiberglass plant was experiencing problems with one of its compressed air powered tools, a circular saw used to cut large pieces out of the molds. The performance of the tool was sluggish, and the workers complained that the tool lacked power and often stalled, which negatively affected productivity. The tool supplier was blamed for supplying what was thought to be a substandard tool, but as it turned out, the real problem was

“THE DIRTY 30.”

The Dirty 30 BY RON MARSHALL FOR THE COMPRESSED AIR CHALLENGE

Compressed air pressures can vary across the system piping in a typical industrial plant due to friction loss inside the pipes and restrictions to flow caused by system components such as air dryers, filters, regulators, connectors, and hoses. The air pressure might start out at 125 psi at the air compressor, be only 115 psi as it exits the compressor room, then drop only 110 psi by the time it reaches the piping to the end use at the far end of the plant. But in most cases, it is the last 30 feet of piping, “the dirty 30,” where most of the pressure differential occurs. In the fiberglass plant, a special test was done to assess the issue. A pressure gauge on a T connection was connected to the tool. The pressure was first measured with no air flowing while the tool was at rest. A second test was done with the tool running. The readings were compared. The initial pressure was about 118 psi, but with the tool consuming air, the pressure dropped to only 44 psi, a difference of 74 psi. To operate correctly, this tool needed at least 90 psi. It was fairly easy to determine the cause of the pressure differential. The molds being cut were about 30-feet long, requiring a fairly long air hose to access both ends freely without restriction. To make work with the tool easier, a long ¼-in. hose on a retractable hose reel was used. The connection to the reel was supplied through a ¼-in. quick-connect coupler. A second coupler had been installed midway along the hose where a hose extension was added. A third quick-connect coupler was located where the tool was connected. Each of these elements contributed to a portion of the large pressure loss.

This tool consumed about 15 cubic feet per minute when it operated at full output. A check of the pressure drop of the 50 feet of ¼-in. hose showed a rated pressure differential of 40 psi. Each quick-connect coupler contributed slightly over 10 psi to the total pressure drop. There wasn’t anything wrong with this tool; the piping and connectors running to it were too small. What was just described is a common problem in industrial plants. A standard size of hoses and connectors is often applied to all compressed air powered equipment in the plant as a standard installation with little regard to the varying flow rates of the different types of equipment. This policy saves on the number of parts you must stock in the stores department, but it causes problems when a tool requires higher-than-average flow rates. Small tools will have small pressure differential, but large consumers of compressed air will be starved for pressure, causing poor performance. In this plant, the discharge pressure of the compressor had been jacked up as high as it could go. This higher pressure causes the air compressor to consume about 1% more power for every 2 psi of extra pressure. In addition, any unregulated compressed air will consume about 1% more air for every 1-psi increase in system pressure. All this adds up to higher ongoing electrical costs for the compressed air system due to wasted energy. The solution to the problem can be seen by examining Table 1. If a 3/8-in. hose size is selected, the pressure differential reduces substantially. This installation was upgraded to larger size hose, and all but one quick connector was removed. A new 3/8-in. full-flow quick-connect coupler was installed to further reduce connector loss. As a result, the tool now receives 92 psi and is performing wonderfully. Further improvement could have been gained by increasing the hose and connector size even larger to the next largest size. During a recent plant tour, the cutter operator gave us a big thumbs-up for making his work life much more productive.

On the left, the pressure at the tool is 118 psi; on the right, it drops to 44 psi when the tool trigger is pulled. TABLE 1: Pressure differential at 118 psi, 15 cfm, for various hose sizes

NEF UPDATES

National Engineering Forum Convenes Leaders in Orlando, Florida

common vision for transforming the way we perceive, experience, and prioritize engineering in the United States. NEF is identifying solutions for the challenges facing the U.S. engineering enterprise—the capacity of our technical talent to fill current and future jobs, our engineering workforce’s capability to address 21st century challenges, and our nation’s competitiveness on the world stage—the 3C’s. A series of regional dialogues is creating a grassroots network of key influencers from academia, business, government, and the media. The regional dialogues provide NEF with a nationwide survey of thought leaders, and enable a dynamic view of both the past and current state of engineering based on the expertise of those best positioned to help address the three engineering challenges. These sessions provide a platform for an engaging narrative that appeals to students and engineering professionals.

Key Themes from the Orlando Regional Dialogue

Leaders from industry, government, and academia gathered with the National Engineering Forum (NEF) on November 9, 2015 to celebrate Orlando’s place in American engineering. The University of Central Florida (UCF) and its president, John C. Hitt, hosted the event, with Albert Manero II giving keynote remarks. Manero is a UCF mechanical engineering Ph.D. student and executive director of Limbitless Solutions, an

Orlando-based non-profit organization that leverages advanced manufacturing to create 3D printed limbs for children and provide them at no cost.

Overarching Mission In 2012, Lockheed Martin launched the National Engineering Forum in partnership with the Council on Competitiveness and the National Academy of Engineering to promote a

Ninety-one leaders from industry, academia (including students), non-profits, the media, and government participated in the NEF regional dialogue at the University of Central Florida (UCF). Engineering opportunities in Orlando and the greater Florida region were highlighted: fast-growing, popular, and increasingly diverse education systems, as well as dynamic industries attractive to next-generation engineering leaders (robotics, design, gaming, aerospace, etc.). Yet, critical “infrastructure” issues challenge the community in attracting and retaining worldclass engineers in Central Florida. First, inconsistency in state-level programs to fund and support the engineering and in-

novation ecosystem inhibits greater growth, such as the inability to issue bonds to finance new university facilities. Second, as in many U.S. regions, day-to-date infrastructure issues, such as stressed highways/road systems, are becoming detractors for potential engineering employees. One type of engineering and innovation infrastructure that is growing—but could use much more support—is the “bridging spaces” linking engineers with business students and leaders to turbo-charge business development and entrepreneurship.

Recommendations that Emerged from the Dialogue ƒƒ Skew Pell Grant and student loan support toward engineering studies ƒƒ Recruit future engineers from underrepresented groups and regions—and start STEM engagement before high school, focusing on the dimensions of engineering relevant to younger generations through “hybrid classes,” more and more extensive private sector-driven mentorships, internships, and demonstration projects ƒƒ Align university curriculum to multi- and

trans-disciplinary opportunities, and focus state and federal funding efforts and peer review to reward/provide grants to multi-disciplinary initiatives ƒƒ Connect industry and universities to initiate “junior design projects” and develop more relevant senior design projects that map to the real world—in terms of timing (longer than two months) and scope to include concrete experiences around manufacturing processes, sustainability, etc. ƒƒ Pair engineering with humanities to foster options in universities, aligning core classes to engineering ƒƒ Support efforts to keep the best and brightest U.S.-educated students in the United States after graduation

CASE STUDY

ROUGH-TERRAIN TELESCOPIC FORKLIFTS Keep Expeditionary Military Operations Up and Running

DuraForce Pumps from Eaton Equip the RT022 forklifts with reliable, precise control and maneuverability, even in difficult terrain. Kalmar specializes in port automation and energy-efficient cargo handling. Working to make every move count for its customers, the company has provided cargo-handling solutions to ports, terminals, distribution centers, and heavy industry since the 1940s. Kalmar was looking to build a new telescopic forklift for rough-terrain operations, and needed a durable and reliable ground drive solution for the vehicle. THE CHALLENGE Looking to meet impeccable standards, Kalmar developed the RT022 light-capacity rough-terrain forklift. With a robust lift capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, the machine is compact enough to drive right into a container and features two-wheel, four-wheel, and crab-steering modes. Designed to load and unload ISO containers, which carry supplies and ammunition for military expeditionary operations, the machine required excellent maneuverability on terrain ranging from sand to mud to water. Additionally, the military needed machines with a life cycle of at least 15 years.

For more information, visit www. eaton.com.

THE SOLUTION Eaton’s DuraForce HPV pump and HMV motor with CA control provided the RT022 with a robust solution that met the exacting control requirements. The CA control regulates both the pump and motor displacement in accordance with engine speed and operator input, enabling smooth and repeatable vehicle motion through high-resolution control of the pump’s output flow, which in turn is synchronized to the motor rotation speed. Control of the forklift ground speed is predictable and highly reproducible, independent of external factors such as vehicle load and system operating temperature, thus making the forklift easy to use for skilled and novice operators.

18

The CA motion control of DuraForce has demonstrated notable vehicle-positioning advantages in low-speed conditions, as well as increased productivity at high rates of operation. Both vehicle level benefits are industry recognized as critical traits for the safe and productive operation of material-handling equipment, such as the RT022. Load and temperature independence provided by the CA control also allows operators to depend on the same vehicle response again and again, regardless of the different terrains, environments, and cargo the RT022 is sure to experience over its working life. The design of DuraForce begins with the rotating kits, which replace the traditional bronze piston slipper with a steel version.

www.FluidPowerJournal.com • Systems Integrator Directory 2016 • www.IFPS.org

Other design features, including the rigid housing and hydrostatic bearing, can handle extreme duty cycles with peak operating pressures of up to 500 bar. Eaton delivered both the pump and motor with the CA control as an out-of-the-box solution that saved engineering development time for Kalmar. An electronic controller is not required, so less electrical engineering and no software development is required at the OEM level. Over the past two and a half years, more than 1,000 RT022s have been deployed, with more on the way. No issues have been reported in the field, and the military has been pleased with the performance and operation of the machines.


IFPS EXECUTIVE PROFILE

Robert Post,

CFPHS

Robert Post is application engineer for Bailey Hydraulics, Inc., In Knoxville, Tenn. He graduated from the Pennsylvania State University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Influential and supportive people in Robert’s career encouraged him to pursue and achieve the Hydraulic Specialist certification and a position on the IFPS Board of Directors. His work experience includes exposure to a wide variety of mobile hydraulics equipment, including earth-moving equipment, refuse trucks, and fork lifts.

Q

How did you get started in the fluid power industry?

My career started in the 1980s developing construction equipment. A hydroelectric clamshell bucket was built to replace the pulleys and wire rope commonly found in such devices. I didn’t design that bucket, but I prepared the documentation and manuals. I was fortunate to work with a millwright, Ted Rathburn, to assemble and test this new product. Ted’s patience and explanations fueled my curiosity. I was very intrigued and learned as much as possible about the hydraulic components and their interaction before the bucket shipped. On a follow-up visit to the customer site, I was able to watch the hydroelectric clamshell bucket work in a high-volume sand-casting plant. That was a rewarding experience that few young engineers are afforded.

Q

How and why did you get involved with the IFPS?

I became involved in the IFPS so that I can help others get the same feeling of accomplishment that I received years earlier. This was my way of thanking Ted and giving back to the industry.

Q

Why did you decide to pursue IFPS certification, and how has it helped your career?

My boss asked me to consider certification because he knew it was the best way to verify my experience. Years passed before I actually took the exam, but I am so glad I did. My resume shows hydraulic exposure, but certification provides credibility and confidence for me and for my employer.

Q

What have you learned so far by working in the fluid power industry?

I’ve learned that fluid power is growing smarter and more efficient all the time. As controls advance, so do the applications for hydraulics. Not so long ago, aircraft control surfaces were manipulated by cables. The combination of fluid power density and electronic controls continue to develop in other applications, such as earth-moving and mobile equipment. Advanced and highly precise movements can be controlled via satellite if you so choose.

Q

Where do you see the fluid power industry heading in the next 10 years?

Q

What advice would you have for someone starting out in the industry?

Q

What are some of your hobbies and interests?

Q

What would people be surprised to learn about you?

I see continued improvements in efficiency, power density, and performance. However, to achieve those gains, we must identify new technicians and engineers. This field has always been an under-staffed profession. As the current group ages out of the workforce, it is very important to locate and develop our replacements.

There are three things I’d like to share for anyone considering this field: 1. Resources are temporary. Learn all that you can in all possible areas while you can. 2. The hands-on part of this industry is just as important as the computer simulations. 3. Don’t be afraid to fail.

I enjoy building automotive engines, restoring and racing. That seems to be a common hobby in this field.

People might be surprised to learn that I am an aquaponics gardener. Fluid power plays a supporting role, of course, but the fish and plants do the work. Robert Post can be reached at robert.post@baileyhydraulics.com.

FIRST NEWS

Robotics: The Only High School Sport Where Every Kid Can Go Pro FIRST® Builds Momentum for Robotics as Official Extracurricular Sports Activity; Texas Joins Growing List of States to Sanction Robotics Program as Official Sport FIRST® announced a major step forward in the movement to sanction robotics as an official extracurricular sports activity in high schools across the country. This announcement coincides with the launch of a statewide robotics program in Texas, implemented in collaboration with its state activities association and FIRST® in Texas. This pilot program includes opportunities to make robotics a full-fledged sport, accessible to students throughout the state. Texas

joins Connecticut and Minnesota in leading the way in this effort. “Robotics is a sport for the 21st century. The skills students can learn, including teamwork, collaboration, and problem solving, are the same as those learned in other sports, but unlike most sports, robotics provides all students—no matter their background or physical ability— the opportunity to become a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) professional,” said Donald E. Bossi, FIRST president. “That’s why FIRST believes all states should recognize the hard work of students, coaches, and mentors with statewide support.” According to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), of the eight mil-

lion students who participate in high school athletics in the United States, less than 6% will compete at a collegiate level, and of that group, only a fraction will realize their goals of becoming professional athletes. In comparison, FIRST participants are two times as likely to major in science or engineering, and 89.6% of FIRST alumni are currently in a STEM field as a student or a professional. The Texas robotics pilot program, and similar initiatives in other states, allow for FIRST teams in schools to be recognized as official sports teams and receive similar support of other such activities. These benefits include extracurricular program structures; the active support of school executives, teachers, and community leaders; and the opportunity to apply for varsity sports letters for high performance. These efforts come at a critical time, as nationally, STEM occupations are growing 1.7 times faster than non-STEM careers—according to the Office of Science and Technology Policy. In Texas, National Instruments is working with community leaders to support initiatives and programs that will help support education workforce needs in the Lone Star State. The pilot program in Texas, with support from National Instruments, a FIRST Strategic Sponsor and global advocate for STEM education, will engage teachers and students from 1,400 high schools and 1,500 middle schools in Texas in project-based, hands-on robotics engineering challenges. “Robotics teams in Texas will now have the opportunity to play at the same level as traditional sports teams,” said Ray Almgren, vice president, National Instruments. “The state’s recognition of robotics means millions of students will now have access to robotics and an opportunity to learn STEM skills in a hands-on way. This is a turning point for the widespread accessibility and adoption of student robotics programs across the state and nationwide.”

FIRST ANNOUNCES SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM MILESTONE $25 Million Available to High School Students; Nearly 200 Providers Offer College Scholarship Opportunities to FIRST Alumni FIRST® announced a milestone in its 20-year-old scholarship program: In 2016, $25 million in college scholarship opportunities will be made available to nearly 200 providers to FIRST alumni. The scholarship program connects FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition participants with colleges, universities, corporations, and associations, making available hundreds of scholarship opportunities exclusively set aside for FIRST participants. “This is a significant milestone for the FIRST scholarship program,” said Donald E. Bossi, FIRST president. “Our mission is to inspire young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). We are able to do this by offering students a hands-on learning experience and exclusive access to $25 million in scholarship opportunities. With the general support of our nearly 200 scholarship providers, we are excited to help FIRST students pursue the next steps toward becoming leaders in their fields.” One such provider, Kettering University, continues to grow its support in developing these future leaders. The University offers up to 25 $5,000 scholarships to FIRST participants. Last year, it expanded its support by opening the FIRST Robotics Community Center in Kettering. “In the one year Kettering University’s FIRST Robotics Community Center—the only facility of its kind on a college campus in the country—has been open, it has already had a profound and dramatic impact on students in our community and beyond,” said Dr. Robert K. McMahan, Kettering University president. “This is just the beginning; we are going to expand our programming aimed at exciting young people about the possibilities of a STEM education and career. The FIRST Center has truly made Flint, Michigan, and Kettering University a national hub for robotics.” In addition to representing 22% of incoming freshmen at Kettering University this year, FIRST alumni make up 30% of the incoming

freshmen class at Capitol Technology Institute; 13.4% of the incoming freshmen class at Worcester Polytechnic Institute; 10% of the incoming freshmen class at Milwaukee School of Engineering; and 10% of the incoming freshmen class at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. New to the scholarship program this year is the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The school is making available up to four non-renewable $2,000 scholarships for engineering majors from FIRST teams. In 2015, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign was ranked No. 5 in the U.S. News & World Report Best Undergraduate Engineering Program rankings. FIRST scholarship program opportunities are available to high school students in the following programs: ƒƒ FIRST Tech Challenge is designed for students in grades 7-12 (ages 12-18) to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams are responsible for designing, building, and

IN MEMORIAM

Russell Henke (1924–2015)

After a long battle with Alzheimer’s, Russell “Russ” Henke died at the age of 91 on November 2, 2015. Russ is described by his wife of 68 years, Constance, as a man who loved life with a devotion to the fluid power industry. He graduated from Wauwatosa High School in 1942. He joined the U.S. Navy at age 19, and trained for flight school, where he traveled to various states, and served in the Pacific on an aircraft carrier during World War II. After the war, Russ graduated from UW-Madison with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Within Russ’s professional legacy were active roles in education, as well as in numerous committees and professional associations. Russ was the founding director of the Fluid Power Institute at Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), a role that carried with it the rank of Professor of Mechanical Engineering. He served on many committees and on the Board of Directors for the International Fluid Power Society, serving as president from 1966-67. After gaining an impressive amount of engineering and manufacturing experience working for companies including Racine Hydraulics Co., American Marietta Corp., Badger Meter Mfg. Co., and The Heil Co., Russ focused his skills and time at his own consulting firm, Russ Henke Associates. His business consisted of consulting, conducting educational seminars, and serving as an expert witness. Russ loved to write about fluid power, particularly hydraulics. He authored over 100 published articles, papers, etc., on a range of technical, marketing, and management topics. He also wrote six technical books. Russ was the recipient of many fluid power awards, including the Pascal Medal from the International Fluid Power Society in 1970. Russ enjoyed many hobbies in his life, including photography, gardening, and travel. He enjoyed taking pictures of lighthouses around the world. Russ is survived by his wife, Constance, and his children, Christopher and Pamela. His life was celebrated in a private ceremony.

Fluid Power Industry Reviews, Selects Research Projects for CCEFP BY ERIC LANKE, NFPA CEO

CUSTOMER SERVICE CUSTOMER SERVICE Customer service CUSTOMER SERVICE ALL all OVER WORLD overTHE the world

ALL OVER THE WORLD

ALL OVER THE WORLD One of the most common questions I get about the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) is how they pick which research projects to fund. It’s a question I love answering, because it’s a welcome surprise for many to learn that it is the fluid power industry, not academia, that provides the majority of input into this decision. Within the CCEFP, there lives a group of industry professionals called the Industry Engagement Committee. Since we began providing financial support from the NFPA Foundation and its new Pascal giving and recognition society to the CCEFP, seats on this committee have been extended to Silver and Gold donors in the Pascal Society. The industry members of the committee elect their own leadership, with the current chair being Eric Bretey of Danfoss and the current vice chair being QingHui Yuan of Eaton. One of the jobs of the committee is to identify the research topics that CCEFP projects should focus on. In this respect, they rely heavily on NFPA’s industry-driven Technology Roadmap for the Fluid Power Industry and on their own real-world understanding of the pre-competitive research challenges facing our industry. They are committed to identifying the challenges that will “lift all boats” for the industry—focused neither on the product development objectives of any single company, nor on a far-out research frontier with no foreseeable application. For the upcoming funding cycle (for which the call for proposals has already been sent, with proposals due December 11, 2015), the committee prioritized the following as the top three research topics: ƒƒ Increasing the energy efficiency of fluid power components and systems ƒƒ Improving and applying the energy-storage capabilities of fluid power components and systems ƒƒ Reducing the environmental impact of fluid power components and systems (lowering noise, eliminating leaks, etc.) Looks like they really have their finger on the pulse of the broad R&D needs of our industry! But identifying the general topics under which proposals can be submitted is only the first step in the review process. Once the proposals are in, the industry members of the same committee will review, score, and ultimately determine which receive the funding.

NFPA UPDATES

ISO Technical Committee Works to Advance Energy Efficiency The International Standards Organization (ISO) technical committee for fluid power (TC 131), along with 19 of its subcommittees and working groups, converged on Frankfurt am Main, Germany and Milan, Italy in October to foster standards development within the hydraulics and pneumatics industries. The delegates in each committee/ working group worked diligently to resolve and move many fluid power ISO projects forward. Along with building consensus to confirm and/or withdraw individual projects in each of the committees, ISO/TC 131/SC 9 - Installations and Systems continued its discussion on the importance of developing standards to address the energy issues facing customers. The following resolution for developing energy-related standards was adopted as a result:

Recognizing that energy is an important issue facing the users and manufacturers of fluid power, ISO TC 131/SC 9 will pursue the development of standards and technical reports, as deemed appropriate, to measure, model, analyze, or rate energy efficiency or power consumption of fluid power systems as well as recommendations for good practice. Accordingly, ISO TC 131/ SC 9 will re-activate: WG 1 for hydraulic systems; WG 2 for pneumatic systems. Each working group will receive proposals for discussion and follow the ISO procedures to develop standards or technical reports.

This was a well-debated issue among the experts during the meeting, and a consensus was reached to allow those WGs to develop energy-related standards or technical reports on their components. All experts were invited to make proposals regarding energy systems at the next meeting. Fifty-three fluid power engineering experts attended this round of meetings, representing ISO member bodies from China, Japan, United Kingdom, Italy, France, Germany, and the United States. Thirteen U.S. experts traveled to the meetings from NFPA member companies Cummins Filtration, Main Manufacturing, Parker Hannifin, and SMC. U.S. Technical Advisory members from John Deere and PAMAS also attended as U.S. delegates. A special thanks to VDMA and DIN for the gracious hospitality that they extended to the delegates. Poland, Germany, and the United Kingdom are being researched as possible meeting locations in 2016. The location and dates will be finalized over the next couple of weeks. If you would like to learn how to get involved in standards work, please contact Denise Rockhill at drockhill@nfpa.com.

Hose Testing Methods for Optimal Performance BY JEFF ANDRASIK, SMITHERS RAPRA NORTH AMERICA

Predicting the life of a hose and determining the source of a failure can be difficult. Understanding how or when a failure occurs is time, temperature, and stress dependent. Service conditions and fault situations often vary from product to product, and without testing, failure modes are most often unknown before initial use under normal operating conditions. For complex applications, it’s impossible to fully replicate service conditions in an accelerated test. Failure mechanisms are not always progressive, but a stepwise change in properties can occur. Hose failure can be caused by several common conditions. Flexing, twisting, or pulling a hose to a degree that is smaller than the specified bend radius are typical failure modes. If an insufficient amount of pressure is applied during the crimping process, it can cause the hose to break loose from the crimp, while too much pressure can cause internal tears in the hose. Improper assembly, such as incompatible hoses and connectors or a lack of fittings and clamps, can lead to leaks and losses. Additionally, abrasion or hoses that rub against other surfaces can cause changes in the surrounding operating system, resulting in incompatibility with existing designs.

Testing For Quality – Key Considerations Throughout the product development lifecycle, there are key opportunities to assess how a product will perform in its final application. Material testing allows you to understand how polymers behave in specific applications and measures the effect of different environmental factors under isolated conditions. Data can be carried over to new applications and can aid in the initial selection of candidate materials. Product testing

Hose Failure

more effectively replicates the service conditions and only relates to the specific product being tested. Common industry standard test methods include FMVSS 106, SAE J1610, SAE J2260, SAE J2044/J2045, GMW 16153, and GMW 14785 for automotive, and SAE J343, SAE J517 for industrial. In addition, both material and product testing can bring to light compatibility issues that may exist in the various reinforcing materials and components that can go into a hose. Before beginning the test process, determine the property that should be measured, the critical function for the application, and the key attributes that must be replicated to achieve true, comparable results. Ask: what is the end of life or threshold criterion? A 50% loss in property is commonly used, but an absolute value may be more appropriate. Consider the thickness of the test sample, as it influences the rate of diffusion of a gas or liquid into the material. Thinner parts are more susceptible to short-term degradation, while the bulk properties of very large components may remain almost unaffected. Developing a test to evaluate a product after a specified period of time is easier than testing to failure, so also consider the duration, working temperature, fluid exposure, mounting, and any other moving parts.


Types of Hose Testing Evaluations Increasing Efficiency in Testing Internal testing can often become bottlenecked in the proof-testing phase of the product-development process. Delays result in lost time, the product not going to market on schedule, and subsequently lost revenues. But, there is a solution: the addition of external testing can save time and money. It allows the testing of different variables, multiple iterations, and benchmarking against competitive products. Internal testing can be supplemented with external testing to decrease the runway to product launch and un-jam the proof-testing phase.

The Value of Ex ternal Testing Smithers Rapra has created a tool for businesses to compare the value of internal testing versus external testing according to their individually unique circumstances. It provides an accurate prediction of potential revenue gains and losses based on the estimated retail market price of the final product, the forecasted monthly volume sold, the projected delays for internal testing, the adjusted delay for external testing, and the cost for external testing.

PRESSURE TESTING Every hose has a Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP). There are three common pressure tests used to verify the hose and house assembly’s pressure range: • Static (Leak Checks or Proof) tests require pressure at the MAWP to verify that the hose will not rupture and the assembly (i.e., crimp area) does not leak. • Impulse tests produce a high-pressure/low-pressure effect on the assembly to simulate the pump being turned on and off. • Burst tests require a constant increase in pressure inside a hose assembly until failure occurs. This determines the Safety Factor Ratio of the hose.

TEMPERATURE TESTING Under accelerated aging evaluations, temperature is used to accelerate a test, producing greater energy for reactions to occur in a shorter timeframe. High temperatures can cause varying reactions, though, so material must not undergo any transitions over an accelerated temperature range. Remain below the recommended upper operating temperature for optimal results. When testing tensile strength, failure always occurs in the center, so it’s easy to measure the failure point in the product. Polymer behavior informs how the tensile strength, hardness, and elongation change; ductile-to-brittle behavior can be seen over sudden transitions. Creep testing is the measurement of the change in extension (creep strain) under a constantly applied load. TTS is used to extrapolate data and predict service life. Creep rupture is the terminal event of creep and is a measure of the time that a material under a constantly applied tensile load takes to fail. Temperature cycling is used to evaluate the behavior of the product when exposed to varying temperature extremes. An environmental chamber capable of cycling temperature is used during this test.

VIBRATION TESTING Vibration testing is used to simulate how a hose is affected when it is being flexed or shaken. Two types of testing include flex fatigue and vibration. Flex fatigue forces the hose to move in a low-frequency, high-displacement motion in which one end is typically moving while the other is stationary. Vibration forces the hose to move in a high-frequency, lowdisplacement motion, also in which one end is moving and the other is stationary.

FLUID COMPATIBILITY TESTING Fluid compatibility testing is usually conducted on the finished material. Studies need to be performed to confirm that the hose’s composition can withstand prolonged exposure with the fluid; typical testing protocol for fluid compatibility is ASTM D471. Evaluate material compatibility with fluids by measuring the change in physical properties, such as tensile strength, elongation, hardness, and volume swell, or its reaction to the elevated temperature of fluids, such as fuels, oils, coolants, brake fluid, and cleaning agents.

AIR TEASER

New Problem Why doesn't the adjustable flow control regulate the speed to open a door equipped with an automatic door closer? What is the easiest fix? The original door closer works just fine to close the door. The cylinder retracts to open the door. The TD (Time Delay) is an off delay.

By Ernie Parker, AI, AJPP, AJPPCC, S, MT, MM, MIH, MIP, MMH Fluid Power Instructor Hennepin Technical College EParker@Hennepintech.edu The teaser is posted on the IFPS website (www.ifps.org) and also printed in the Fluid Power Journal. Submit your information via the website, or fax it to 856-424-9248 attn: Donna Pollander. Those who submit the correct answer before the deadline will have their names printed in the Society Page newsletter and in Fluid Power Journal. The winners will also be entered into a drawing for a special gift.

PREVIOUS TEASER “I plan to put an eight (8)-ft. elevator in my house using an air-over-oil system in case of power outages. My air compressor has a 75-gallon tank and kicks on at 80 psi. If I were to use a four (4)-in. cylinder for a total load of 350 lbs., theoretically how many cycles would I have with a loss of power, starting at 80 psi?” Use 50 cubic inches of air space on top of the oil tank and back to the regulator. Assume 100% efficiency.

Solution: 9 Cycles Load on elevator 350 lbs. Load on cylinder 700 lbs. (2:1 Mechanical disadvantage) Cylinder diameter is 4” Area = 12.566 in². Cylinder volume = 12.566 x 48” (2:1 Mech. Disadvantage) = 603 in3 + 50 in3 in the airline = 653 in3 / cycle Required PSI = 700 lbs. / 12.566 in² = 55.7 PSI Tank Volume = 75 gallons x 231 in3 / gallon = 17,325 in3 Because of the changing in pressure as we use air volume from the tank, we need to convert our cubic inches into standard cubic inch. This can be done by finding the compression

62

ratio and multiplying it by the cubic inches. Another way of looking at this is the number of cubic inches that the air compressor would need to take in to complete the job. A formula that works for that is gage pressure / 14.7 + 1 =.80 / 14.7 + 1 = 6.442 (C. R.) (This means that it takes 6.442 cubic inches of free air to get 1 in3 of compressed air at 80 PSIG. That is what the air compressor draws in for each cubic inch it delivers at 80 PSIG.) 6.442 (C.R.) x 17,325 in3 = 111,610.7 standard cubic inches in the tank

Subtracting the minimum from the maximum = 111,610.7 – 82,971 = 28,639 useable standard cubic inches. Again, convert cubic inches required to standard cubic inches required: 55.7 / 14.7 + 1 = 4.789 x 653 in3 (needed per cycle) = 3127 standard cubic inches per cycle Take useable volume in tank and divide by required cubic inch per cycle: 28,641.3 / 3127 = 9 cycles theoretically

Minimum air pressure needed is 55.7 PSIG 55.7 / 14.7 + 1 = 4.789 C.R. 47.789 x 17,325 = 82,971 standard cubic inch that will remain in the tank at minimum PSI

Note: If one were to figure air usage at 67% efficient, you could count on at least six (6) complete cycles because the cylinder is used as a single-acting cylinder.
