<emphasis role="bold">Introduction</emphasis> Pneumatic systems are power systems using compressed air as a working medium for the power transmission. Their principle of operation is similar to that of the hydraulic power systems. An air compressor converts the mechanical energy of the prime mover into, mainly, pressure energy of the compressed air. This transformation facilitates the transmission, storage, and control of energy. After compression, the compressed air should be prepared …
