  4. Pneumatic equipment v hydraulic equipment

    Pneumatics v Hydraulics? It’s a common debate within the manufacturing world. Both are tried and tested means of actuation and both are widely relied upon across industry. In this article, Best Pneumatic Systems looks to resolve the “pneumatic equipment v hydraulic equipment” debate once and for all. From discussing their individual benefits and why you might decide to use them, it’s time for pneumatic equipment and hydraulic equipment to go head-to-head!

    Benefits of pneumatic equipment

    The main difference between pneumatics and hydraulics is the medium used to transmit power. Pneumatic equipment uses compressed air and gases to function, whereas hydraulic equipment relies on fluids and oils. One of the main benefits of pneumatic equipment over hydraulic is the ability to work faster. Because air is agile and can flow with little resistance, pneumatic equipment benefits from higher compressor flow rates. As a result, pneumatic components deliver higher operating sp
