Pneumatics: The Power of Compressed Air is part one of the Pneumatics eight-part training series.
Power transmission systems are found in equipment ranging from simple devices to complex industrial machines. This course introduces pneumatics the transfer, control, and use of energy contained in compressed and flowing air. It provides a basic description of the characteristics of matter and describes the relationship between pneumatic properties. In addition, it describes the factors that affect air flow and velocity as well as the effects that temperature, water vapor, air saturation, and condensation have on a pneumatic system.
The course covers:
- The characteristics of matter
- Molecular level
- Properties of pneumatics
- Specific volume, pressure, and temperature
- Air flow
- Factors affecting air flow
- Air saturation
