Fluid Power Products & Equipment
In fluid power systems, a motor pressurizes fluid (liquid or gas) through chambers and other actuator systems to transform fluid pressure into mechanical energy and motion.
Fluid power has an advantage over competing technologies, like electric and mechanical methods, because fluid power systems can easily deliver linear motion, while other methods must use additional devices to convert rotational motion to linear motion.
Another advantage of fluid power is that these systems don’t need electric power to operate, which mitigates the risk of sparks, shocks, and fire.
Because fluid power is so useful, it’s used in most industries, which is why Greenshields stocks fluid power parts for a range of applications, including:
Product sanitation & hygienics
Types of Fluid Power Products
Fluid power solutions are built from many different parts and components. For example, fasteners, seals, numerous fittings, a piston rod, and machined metal are all required for the assembly of a singly pneumatic cylinder.
To help you understand which fluid power equipment you may need, here are three of the most common categories of fluid power components:
Hydraulic Fluid Power Components
Hydraulic fluid power systems generate linear motion by passing pressurized liquid through an actuator. Hydraulic fluid power parts include:
Pneumatic Fluid Power Parts
Pneumatic fluid power systems work much like hydraulic systems, except that pneumatic solutions use pressurized gas instead of liquid. The most common and cheapest type of gas to use in a pneumatic fluid system is air.
Pneumatic pistons are manufactured from many components, including:
Rear head cylinders
Front cylinder heads
Low-friction ball joints
Zero-friction air-bearing pistons
Mechanical Fluid Power Products
Because fluid power solutions deliver cheap, effective, and safe power, you can find them playing a role in many larger systems, including:
Airplane landing gears & brakes
Fire rescue equipment
Bulldozers, backhoes, and other digging machines
