Pneumatics

Pneumatics is a section of technology that deals with the study and application of pressurized gas to produce mechanical motion.
Pneumatic systems are used extensively in industry, and factories are commonly plumbed with compressed air or compressed inert gases. This is because a centrally located and electrically powered compressor that powers cylinders and other pneumatic devices through solenoid valves can often provide motive power in a cheaper, safer, more flexible, and more reliable way than a large number of electric motors and actuators.

Applications

  • Air brakes on buses and trucks
  • Air brakes on trains
  • Air compressors
  • Air engines for pneumatically powered vehicles
