Introduction to Pneumatics (IFME1140)
Gain familiarity with the physical principles of compressed air and learn about the ways in which air and vacuum are used in this field.
Pneumatic power is defined as the art of generating, controlling, and applying smooth, effective power from compressed air in order to push, pull, rotate, regulate or drive the machines, equipment and appliances of modern life. In this course, students will gain familiarity with the physical principles of compressed air and learn about the ways in which air and vacuum are used in this field. Also included are compressed air production and preparation, operation and application of pneumatic components, standard pneumatic symbology, pneumatic working elements, directional control valves, pressure and flow control valves, basic logic circuits, pneumatic timer and pressure sequence valve.
- Sketch the symbols for and describe the operation of directional valves, cylinders, and other control devices
- Use a 3/2 pushbutton to control a single acting cylinder
- Use a 5/2 valve to control a double acting cylinder
- Demonstrate memory control
- Explain and demonstrate control with pushbutton and limit valve on a cylinder
- Use the "OR" and "AND" Function with two pushbuttons
- Explain the function of needle valves, check valves and flow controls
- Use the quick exhaust valve for fast return and the pressure actuated valve on a cylinder
- Explain and demonstrate the function of the timing valve
- Explain and demonstrate the function of a sequence control with two cylinders, using limit valves
