  • Principles of pneumatics are the same as hydraulics, the main difference is that pneumatics uses a gas to transmit power.
  • Compressed air is the main type of gas used in pneumatics. Nitrogen and other inert gases can also be used for certain applications.
  • Most operate at 100 PSI or less
  • Advantages: components are lightweight due to lower pressure, pneumatic systems offer "give", simpler design because air can be exhausted to the atmosphere, and pick and place of delicate objects (using a vacuum to pick up a sheet of paper)
  • These systems are used widely in factory automation, medical and food processing equipment. They are also used for off- and on-highway vehicle systems.
