What is a pneumatic system?

A pneumatic system is a type of technology that utilises compressed air or gas to transmit power and control mechanical motion. It involves the use of pneumatic components such as compressors, air receivers, valves, cylinders, and pneumatic tools.

What applications do they have ?

As we said pneumatics can move objects and perform various tasks with ease. Due to that ability they have many applications in various industries. That industries can be:

  • Automotive Industry
  • Robotics
  • Transportation
  • Medical Industry
  • HVAC Systems
  • Packaging and Material Handling
  • Food and Beverage Industry
  • Mining and Construction
  • Energy and Utilities

What are some common issues of the pneumatic systems ?

Some common issues of the pneumatic systems can be:

  1. Air Leaks
  2. Moisture and Contaminants
  3. Inconsistent Pressure
  4. Component Wear and Tear
  5. Improper Sizing or Selection
  6. Lack of Lubrication
  7. Incorrect Installation
  8. Overload and Overuse
  9. Inadequate Maintenance
  10. Improper System Design

The above issues are all of them fixable, but the best way to keep your system running smoothly is to prevent those issues. For example you can

  • inspect the air tubes for any leakage before you start operating the pneumatic tools
  • use proper filtration systems to avoid the concentration of moisture
  • check for any damages in the components and replace them
  • Make sure the lubrication system is filled with fluid
  • Make some breaks and give time to the system to “relax”
  • Advise experts of the field to install it properly and avoid any accidents
