The Ins and Outs of Pneumatic Timers

Considering the risk of fire on an oilrig, it is important to take multiple steps to prevent any potential fires. This is why you'll find that these rigs almost exclusively use pneumatic products and controls. This includes pneumatic timers, pistons, and valves. The devices work with compressed air, so there is no electrical current needed. Other types of timers require electricity, and so having electricity on an oilrig could potentially lead to damages to humans and property.

The intricacies of pneumatic devices are extensive. When acquiring new goods, it is important to contact professionals who are able to help in determining specific devices. Before reaching out, one can look into the basic devices like pistons, valves, and timers. The three devices must all be connected to the air supply. This will ensure that the devices function properly. The air supply is responsible for activating the piston. The process is continued until the piston reaches its destination.

As the piston approaches its destination it will be slowed. Airflow builds up in behind the piston, which pushes it. The destination of the piston is specially built to prevent air from escaping to quickly. This design allows for precise times to be set. This is all done with the help of a pneumatic timer. This is rather similar to doors that are built with mechanisms that prevent the door from being slammed. As the door gets closer to shutting, it moves less and less (until the door shuts quietly).

A pneumatic timer allows user to have total control over airflow. Regulating the time that it takes for a piston to move back and forth allows for this control. The timers are easy to use (most coming with dials), and the will control how wide and far the valve opens. It is possible to change the settings on the timer for each usage. The timers are what allow a multitude of different industries the ability to have precise timing control, all without having to worry about electricity and fires.

There is such a wide array of different timers that no individual should make a purchase without consulting a professional in the industry. Make sure you acquire the appropriate pneumatic timers, pneumatic valves, and pneumatic pistons. Getting the wrong item will only lead to fault operations and the wasting of money.
