Fluid Power Solutions 

Since 1932, S.G. Morris has been a full-service distributor and resource for fluid power solutions. With access to Certified Fluid Power Specialists, Mechanics, and Technicians, we are your comprehensive fluid power resource.

Fluid Power Solutions

Industrial fluid power systems are preferred for many industrial applications because they offer precise control, high power density, and can operate in various environmental conditions. They are crucial components of modern industrial processes, improving efficiency and productivity across a wide range of industries.

There are two main types of systems: Hydraulic and pneumatic.

Hydraulic systems are known for their ability to provide high force and precise control, making them suitable for applications where heavy loads or precise movements are required.

Pneumatic systems are advantageous for their simplicity, clean operation, and fast response times. They are commonly used in situations where a lighter force is sufficient, and speed and quick actuation are essential, and are widely used in industries like manufacturing, automotive, packaging, and assembly lines.

Both hydraulic and pneumatic systems offer advantages in specific applications, and both hydraulic and pneumatic systems have their unique advantages and applications. The choice between the two depends on factors such as the required force, speed, precision, environmental conditions, and available resources. 

S.G. Morris offers fluid power solutions for hydraulic and pneumatic systems, including:

  • Reservoirs
  • Pumps
  • Valves
  • Actuators
  • Power sources
  • Piping

Custom Fluid Power Solutions

Custom fluid power solutions from S.G. Morris are most appropriate when you have specific requirements or challenges that cannot be adequately addressed by off-the-shelf components, including:

  1. Unique Applications: If your application has specialized needs or operates in a unique environment that requires a tailored approach, custom solutions can ensure optimal performance.
  2. Complex Systems: For complex hydraulic or pneumatic systems where standard components might not integrate seamlessly or efficiently, custom solutions can provide a more streamlined and effective setup.
  3. Performance Optimization: When you need to maximize the efficiency, accuracy, or speed of fluid power systems, custom designs can be engineered to deliver precise results.
  4. Space Constraints: If your equipment or machinery has limited space available, custom solutions can be designed to fit within those constraints without compromising functionality.
  5. Unique Challenges: When you encounter specific challenges or issues that cannot be resolved using standard components, a custom solution can be developed to address those issues effectively.
  6. Cost Efficiency: In some cases, a custom solution might be more cost-effective over the long term, as it can be tailored to precisely meet your needs without unnecessary features or components.
  7. Performance Upgrades: If you want to upgrade an existing system's performance or capabilities, custom solutions can be designed that integrate seamlessly with your current setup.
  8. Prototyping and Testing: Custom solutions are beneficial during prototyping and testing phases, allowing you to iterate and refine designs before full-scale production.
  9. Competitive Advantage: Using custom fluid power solutions can give you a competitive edge by providing unique features, improved efficiency, and enhanced performance that differentiate your products or services.


Before opting for a custom solution, it's essential to carefully assess your requirements, budget, and long-term goals. Collaborating with the experienced fluid power engineers and consultants at S.G. Morris can help you determine whether a custom solution is the right choice for your specific situation.
