Pneumatic Power Variables

Provided by: ToolingU

The class "Pneumatic Power Variables" provides users with a foundational knowledge of pneumatic power and the pneumatic systems that generate it where pneumatic power variables are measurable/quantifiable characteristics of a pneumatic or system component. The two most integral variables are fluid flow and pressure. Additional power variables include speed, horsepower, and torque. After taking "Pneumatic Power Variables" users will understand how the different variables of a system affect the transmission of power in a system. Further they will understand how to evaluate and select the most appropriate and efficient components to power a pneumatic system.
