“Fluid Power” is the term we use to describe hydraulic and pneumatic technologies, as both use a fluid – either liquid or gas – to transfer power from location to location. Hydraulic and pneumatic technologies fall into the category of “power transmission,” which means power is converted to a more compliant form and then transported to where the power is needed. Fluid Power isn’t the only form of power transmission – mechanical and electrical are also common methods.
a technology that uses a liquid, usually oil, to transmit power
a technology that uses gas, usually compressed air, to transmit power
Cranes and Boom lifts

Check and ball valves
Paint spraying systems
T-LON’s series of Piston Seals are specifically engineered to serve the Fluid Power Industry. Hydraulic cylinders can be very large in size – for an application like a dam. Pneumatic cylinders are typically smaller in size and can be used in applications such as pneumatic brakes.
