FPWR 1050 - Industrial Pneumatics

Fluid Power Part-time Studies Course

School of Energy

Course Details

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.

Prerequisite(s)
