Parent Category: Engineering
Being the driving force behind most factory, manufacturing, mining machinery, heavy vehicles and equipment, pneumatics are a vital part of our industry today. The field of pneumatics is vast and knowledge is constantly requested in the workings and troubleshooting thereof.
spool valve A spool valve is a multidirectional hydraulic or pneumatic valve usually operated by a joystick. It has several hoses attached to it leading to different pneumatic rams. When the joystick is pushed in one direction, it causes the valve to shut off one of the pneumatic hoses leading to t…

it is because pneumatics is more flexible and easy to use rather than hydraulic[ebolton] There is no need to have a reservoir or return piping. The working "fluid", air, is non-toxic and non-flammable.Poster below is correct. Air systems typically have a tank that is the analog of a hydraulic reserv…
