Introduces the concepts of control and transmission of power by means of pneumatics (compressed air). The course delivery combines hands-on practical exercises with discussions of typical industrial applications and lectures. Simple control circuits will be developed using ISO and JIC schematic symbols, and tested using up-to-date pneumatic equipment.
BCIT reserves the right to cancel courses. In the event of a part-time studies course cancellation, you will be notified at least two business days prior to the course start. Please ensure that your contact information is current.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
Discuss safety and environmental concerns in pneumatics.
Identify key components of typical pneumatic systems.
Relate pressure, temperature, and volume using gas laws.
Use both SI and imperial units in analysis of pneumatic systems.
Describe typical compressors and interpret air flow in CFM and SCFM.
Describe the filter, regulator, and lubricator (FRL) unit.
Describe and apply pneumatic AND, OR, and NOT logic elements.
Describe pneumatic speed control and apply pneumatic flow control valves.
Describe and apply pneumatic directional control valves.
Describe pneumatic pressure sequencing and apply pneumatic pressure control valves.
Describe and apply pneumatic cylinders.
Represent pneumatic circuits using ISO and JIC schematic symbols.
