Introducing BFPA’s new searchable library of fluid power standards

08 Feb 2024

In the dynamic realm of fluid power engineering, staying abreast of the latest standards and best practices is paramount for professionals striving for excellence. The fluid power industry plays a pivotal role in numerous sectors, including manufacturing, aerospace, automotive, and beyond. However, accessing relevant, comprehensive, and up-to-date standards has often been a cumbersome and time-consuming task – until now.

New for 2024, BFPA is pleased to launch a new, free of charge and accessible to all, searchable library of UK and international standards dedicated to the fluid power industry, a resource designed to streamline access to vital information and elevate industry practices.

The idea for the library stems from a recognition of the challenges faced in accessing pertinent standards which previously required sifting through an array of sources and often relying on outdated or fragmented information. This not only impeded efficiency but also hindered the dissemination of best practice across the industry. To address these pain points, BFPA has created a centralised source of information which consolidates the vast body of knowledge underpinning fluid power engineering.

The library has a user-friendly interface designed to empower professionals to swiftly pinpoint relevant standards with the ability to search by category, by individual words, phrases and by technical committee.

Whether delving into hydraulic system design principles, pneumatic component specifications, or safety protocols, the library offers a comprehensive list of fluid power standards which meets the needs of engineers, technicians, researchers, and educators alike.

Beyond serving as a source of existing standards, the searchable library enables professionals to stay abreast of updates as it is regularly amended in line with national and international published standards.

As the fluid power industry continues to evolve in response to shifting market dynamics and technological advancements, the importance of a centralised repository of professional standards cannot be overstated as we strive to remain at the forefront of the evolution of the fluid power industry. By empowering professionals with the tools and resources needed to excel, this initiative paves the way for a future defined by innovation, excellence, and shared knowledge.
