Air Rams: Single Acting vs Double Acting Pneumatic or Hydraulic Cylinders

hydraulics tubes

If you need power from compressed air pressure to be used for industrial machinery, pneumatic cylinders or air rams can deliver the big punch. On the other hand, if you need power for heavy machinery such as heavy lifters, movers, bulldozers, dump trucks, and the like, hydraulic cylinders are the standard mobile applications.  Both pneumatic…

Air Rams: How a Motorcycle Lift Works

air rams

Getting down on your knees to repair or maintain your motorcycle can take its toll on your energy levels. Instead, you can use a motorcycle lift to “lift” your motorbike to a comfortable height to work on. Bike lift tables are flat steel textured surface plates with a lifting and locking mechanism that holds the…

Why Do Trucks and Buses Use Air Brakes?

air rams

The compressed air braking system is a type of friction brake for large vehicles, railroad cars, and other vehicles that carry heavy loads. Air brakes use compressed air that presses on a piston and then applies pressure to the brake pad to stop the vehicle. Air brakes use a pneumatic system or air rams rather…

Pneumatic Air Rams are Found in Common Everyday Tools like Nail Guns

air rams

Pneumatic air rams, or more commonly known as pneumatic system, use pressurised gasses to power either a rotation rotor system or a reciprocating piston. By comparison, pneumatic hydraulic systems use liquids to apply pressurised power. Essentially, pneumatic systems work by compressing to a higher pressure that forces a spindle or piston to move. But while…

Air Rams: Industrial Equipment is Vital for the Economy During the Pandemic

air rams

The present pandemic crisis has turned into a global crisis, unprecedented in scale. No industry has escaped unscathed, even if those sectors are considered as essential. Industrial equipment is no exception. All types of industrial equipment are grappling with this health and economic crisis, as both manufacturing, distribution, and supply chain operations have been disrupted.…

Are Industrial Parts Such as Air Rams Considered “Essential”?

air rams

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to expand, manufacturers and distributors are facing challenges on several fronts. At the outset of the economic disruption, the industry had to question whether industrial parts such as valves, cylinders, air rams, etc. were considered as “essential.” The answer was a “yes” because many industries are dependent on industrial parts…

The Essentials of Pneumatic Cylinders with Air Rams

air rams

Some industrial applications need linear motion for necessary operating sequences. One of the most cost-effective methods to accomplish this is by using pneumatic actuators or pneumatic air cylinders using air rams. An air cylinder is a device that translates a source of static power into useful output motion. It can also be used to apply…

Pneumatics Through the Ages: The Evolution of the Valve and Air Rams

air rams

Most of today’s modern machinery utilises some form of pneumatics within its function, be it valves or air rams. However, many people, even engineers, know very little about the history of valves or how the science of pneumatics evolved into its essential elements today. Here’s a short history and evolution of valves, air rams, and…

The Pneumatic System: Pneumatic Valves, Actuators and More Parts

pneumatic valves

The word “pneumatic” comes from a Greek word Pneuma, which means air. Pneumatics work by means of collecting gases and using it as a medium to create a workforce that can operate heavy machinery and other systems that uses linear or rotational energy. Pneumatic valves are used to control the flow of compressed air into…

How to Maximise the Power of Air Rams

Air rams

Air rams are a type of pneumatic device that simulates the effects of an explosion. Commonly used by performers who step on a large “pedal”, and by using compressed air, the “pedal” is released sending the performer hurtling through the air. The precision and accuracy of an air ram or pneumatic device is a result…

Master Mac 2000: How to Maintain the Quality of Air Rams

air rams

The pneumatic system has four main parts: the tank, the compressor, the valve, and the cylinder. Pneumatics are governed by air or gas resources, therefore, it needs a tank to use as a storage area to preserve excess gas. The compressor is the one that converts air into pressurised gas, which is then used as…
