Basic Pneumatic Systems

Basic Pneumatic Systems

A pneumatic system is a collection of interconnected components using compressed air to do work for automated equipment.  With little experience, on-off control of machines and equipment can be designed and assembled quickly using pneumatic components such as valves and cylinders.  This course is designed for those working with or close to gas power systems, who need to be introduced to pneumatics for the first time.

The aim of this one and a half day course is to provide a greater understanding on the basic pneumatic principles to familiarise delegates with the design, construction and operation of pneumatic components. This includes the interpretation of circuit diagrams and symbols as well as the construction of control systems.


Participants will:

  • Understand basic theory and components of a pneumatic system
  • Understand the configuration of components in different types of pneumatic applications
  • Simple troubleshooting of pneumatic systems
  • Routine maintenance of pneumatic systems
  • Recognise safety aspects of pneumatic systems
  • Understand relationship of air pressure and air flow
  • Understand basic pneumatic circuit diagrams
  • Build and test pneumatic systems with basic components
  • Builds systems for various applications
  • Routine maintenance of pneumatic systems

This programme uses a mixture of group discussions, pro-forma examples, information input sessions along with practical application to fully involve participants.
