Hydraulic and pneumatic devices are all around us.
In the world of mechanics and engineering, there are many different ways to create motion and do work. Two of the oldest, most popular and basic methods are hydraulics and pneumatics. Both rely on similar principles of physics and motion, but they achieve it in different ways.
Actuators are critical in controlling and facilitating practically every mechanized process. The actuator business is currently expanding at a compound annual growth rate of 5. This economic activity involves the three main actuator types — hydraulic, pneumatic and electric. Actuators are mechanical devices that convert energy into motion. This involves a control command that signals a change in a physical system which then generates force to accomplish a task. The commanding signal can be human-operated or automatically controlled while the energy source varies. Actuators control machines and allow system parts to move.
Both hydraulic and pneumatic systems are u sed to run machinery we encounter in our day-to-day life, from car brakes and construction equipment to elevators and automated doors on commuter trains and buses. While hydraulic and pneumatic power circuits have a number of mechanical similarities, and even share some integral components including specific pumps and a set of valves that direct flow, providing force and velocity control of the actuators. Still, end-users of many kinds of machines may be wondering which kind of system is best for their specific applications. Read on to learn the key differences between hydraulic and pneumatic power systems. Hydraulic systems apply pressure to fluid in order to generate power. A pump moves mechanical energy into the system by transporting fluid — usually a hydraulic oil or synthetic lubricant — into a reservoir, where the fluid is stored and residual material including air and other moisture particles are removed. Then, pressure is exerted against one side of the reservoir, forcing the liquid through valves using electrical, manual, hydraulic, pneumatic, or mechanical methods.
There are major differences between hydraulic and pneumatic systems, but also a number of similarities. Both systems, hydraulics and pneumatics, work as an actuator using a pump, and are controlled by valves to convert fluid pressure to mechanical motion. The force that is applied at one point is transmitted to another point via an incompressible fluid. This is usually a type of oil for hydraulics and air for pneumatics. Hydraulics use fluids which are not compressible and maintain their consistency. Hydraulic systems are used in many industries, especially by the automotive industry. They are also used in elevators, dams, machine tools, amusement parks, and turbines.

Both hydraulics and pneumatics are the application of fluid power. Fluid can define as a substance which is capable of flowing and does not maintain its shape for a long time. Fluids have the ability to take the shape of the container depending on the surroundings and flow in a large area when the surrounding removed. In physics, a fluid is a substance that continually deforms under applied shear stress.
Both pneumatics and hydraulics are applications of fluid power. Pneumatics use an easily compressible gas such as air or other sorts of suitable pure gas—while hydraulics uses relatively incompressible liquid media such as hydraulic or mineral oil, ethylene glycol, water, or high temperature fire-resistant fluids.
Pneumatic and hydraulic systems have many similarities. Both pneumatics and hydraulics are applications of fluid power. They each use a pump as an actuator, are controlled by valves, and use fluids to transmit mechanical energy. The biggest difference between the two types of systems is the medium used and applications. Pneumatics use an easily Pneumatic and hydraulic symbols: read and interpret e.

Последний месяц был для Лиланда Фонтейна временем больших ожиданий: в агентстве происходило нечто такое, что могло изменить ход истории, и, как это ни странно директор Фонтейн узнал об этом лишь случайно. Три месяца назад до Фонтейна дошли слухи о том, что от Стратмора уходит жена. Он узнал также и о том, что его заместитель просиживает на службе до глубокой ночи и может не выдержать такого напряжения. Несмотря на разногласия со Стратмором по многим вопросам, Фонтейн всегда очень высоко его ценил.
Никогда еще государственные секреты США не были так хорошо защищены.
Мы говорим о математике, а не об истории. Соши замолчала. - Полезный груз? - предложил Бринкерхофф. - Количество жертв. Ущерб в долларах. - Нам нужна точная цифра, - напомнила Сьюзан. - Оценки ущерба всюду приводятся разные.
