Pneumatic Power Sources

“Pneumatic Power Sources” provides a comprehensive overview of the compressors that allow a pneumatic system to perform work. Users will become familiar with the different types of compressors that may be used in a pneumatic system, as well as the various sources that power these compressors. Users will also gain an understanding of how each unique type of compressor impacts the efficiency and effectiveness of a pneumatic system. Jet engines, heavy construction equipment, and a variety of manufacturing tools would not be possible without compressors. After taking this class, users will be able to identify the different types of compressors that compress air, and the power sources that compressors to perform work.
