Do you think you know your stuff when it comes to industrial air preparation techniques?
Air preparation is an essential component to industrial automation and compressed air applications, which forms a part of the larger subject of pneumatics.
Pneumatics is a specialized subfield of mechanics that studies the properties and application of compressed air and gases that produce motion. Pneumatic technicians manufacture products ranging from actuators, valves and other industrial air preparation accessories and components used in fluid, hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
Proper air preparation products are used in compressed air applications as a way to measure important factors, including airflow, filtration, pressure and safety levels.
Dryers, filters, regulators, sensors are only a few of the types of air preparation products available in the industrial market.
Now, are you properly prepared for the following quiz? Test your air preparation know-how with these 10 questions to see if you have what it takes to be smarter than an air automation expert.
1. What is another name for a liquid or a gas?
2. What kind of air is greater than atmospheric pressure?
3. What type of valve works when fully opened or fully closed?
4. What type of pressure control valve has the main function to limit outlet pressure?
5. What is the name of porous materials that perform the filtration process?
6. Name the kind of force usually expressed in pounds per square inch or force per unit area.
7. Name the rate type that measures mass, volume or weight of fluid passing through a conductor per unit of time.
8. What type of element not only absorbs contaminate but also draws contaminate to it?
9. What kind of pressure is exerted by the atmosphere at any specified location (hint: sea level is around 14.7 pounds per square inch)?
10. Name the type of air that has a temperature of 20°C (or 68°F ), a pressure of 14.70 pounds per square inch and a relative humidity of 36%.
