Pneumatic transmission and control technology, referred to as pneumatic, is the compressed air as the working medium to carry out energy and signal transmission, is to achieve a variety of production process, automatic control of a technology. It is an important part of fluid transmission and control. In recent decades, pneumatic transmission technology has been widely used in industrial automation and labor-saving, and has played a very important role in promoting the development of automation. Pneumatic has many advantages in practical application
1. Easy to use
Air as a working medium, air everywhere, convenient source, directly discharged into the atmosphere after use, will not pollute the environment, can be set less or do not have to set back air pipeline.
2. The system is easy to assemble
The use of quick couplings makes piping very simple, so system assembly, maintenance, and component replacement are simple.
3. It’s quick
Quick action and quick reaction, can reach the required pressure and speed in a short time. Under a certain overload operation can also ensure the safety of the system, and is not easy to overheating phenomenon.
4. Safe and reliable
Compressed air does not explode or catch fire and does not require expensive explosion-proof facilities to be used in flammable and explosive places. Can be safely and reliably used in flammable, explosive, dust, radiation, strong magnetic, vibration, impact and other harsh environment.
5. Easy storage
The air pressure has a high self-holding capacity, compressed air can be stored in the gas tank, ready to use. The pneumatic system maintains a stable pressure even when the compressor stops running and the valve is closed. Therefore, the continuous operation of the compressor is not required.
6. Long-distance transmission
Because the viscosity of air is small, the flow resistance is small, the pressure loss of air flow along the pipeline is small, which is conducive to the concentrated supply of media and long-distance transportation. Air is easily piped, regardless of distance.
7. Overload protection
Pneumatic mechanism and working parts can be overloaded and stop, so there is no danger of overload.
Basic pollution-free, for the requirements of high purification, pollution-free occasions, such as food, printing, wood and textile industry is very important, pneumatic has a unique adaptability, better than hydraulic, electronic, electrical control.
