2019 Industry Open Day Event

The NFPC invites you to attend the Industry Exhibition & Open Day.

Our industry-lead exhibition has grown to become a key annual event for companies associated with Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Electronics, Control and Automation.

We anticipate there will be over 80 companies expected to be taking part in the 2019 Industry Open Day event which will give you a chance to network and see the latest technologies as we take a lead into Integrated Systems Engineering.

You’ll have the chance to attend a variety of Technical Lectures throughout the day delivered by our key speakers, and an opportunity to see the world class training facilities we have at the National Fluid Power Centre.

A free buffet lunch and refreshments will be provided to all of those attending and there is car parking available on site.

Sam Keating – Laboratory Manager- Hydac Technology UK

Correlation between “Membrane Patch Colorimetry” (MPC) test results and the differences observed between Particle Count data at 20 degrees and 80 degrees C in mineral oils.

New oil samples have a low MPC and show negligible differences between particle counts between 20 and 80 degrees, however used samples begin to display differences between particle counts at the two temperatures. This indicates that deposits dissolve back into the oil at high temperatures and high MPC is not reflected in particle counts indicating that filter membrane colour is not due to varnish but other contaminants.
