How Do Pneumatic Systems Work?


Pneumatic systems use compressed gas (usually, air or nitrogen) to control and transmit energy. They utilize a variety of filters, valves, and regulators to treat, direct, and control the gas as it moves from the compressor to the actuating cylinder.

Because these systems rely on dry gas as their source, they require lubrication. Many pneumatic systems use a filter/regulator/lubricator (FRL) combination to clean and lubricate the gas, as well as control the pressure.
