The term pneumatics refers to anything that deals with pressurized gas or air in order to produce mechanical motion, such as in machines. The use of pneumatics dates back to ancient times and is still a popular option for consistent and reliable functionality. Air compressors are the most common pneumatic machines in industrial applications and are used to compress air for storage in reservoirs or tanks. This compressed air is then directed through a series of valves, cylinders, and other components in order to perform functions like powering a nail gun, operating a robotic arm, or even running an engine.

Caring For Your Pneumatic Equipment

Since pneumatic equipment operates with pressurized air, it's essential that you keep everything in the system functioning correctly to avoid bleeds, pressure loss, and equipment failure. Here are a few tips:

Keep It Clean

Dirty, dust, and other debris can clog air filters or nozzles, causing damage to components like air intakes and connectors. Regularly clean your equipment with a cloth or soft brush, and check all hoses and connectors before use to make sure they are clear.

Check For Leaks

Air leaks will cause pressure loss, leading to reduced efficiency and power, as well as increased power requirements to keep the system functioning properly. Check for hissing noises, and inspect your hoses regularly to look for damage.

Use Proper Lubricant

Pneumatic components require routine lubrication to prevent wear and tear and make sure that the tools operate smoothly for years to come. Refer to the manufacturer's instructions to make sure that you keep your equipment working correctly and to minimize wear and tear.

Store Your Equipment Correctly

When not in use, store your equipment in a clean, dry place out of direct sunlight, moisture, and temperature fluctuations. Avoid leaving your hoses near abrasives that could wear through the protective covering, which may lead to leaks in your system.
