Pneumatic tubes are an important component of pneumatic systems. They provide efficient and safe transport of compressed air and contribute to the reliability and efficiency of systems. They are usually made of flexible materials such as polyethylene, polyurethane or Teflon, available in different sizes and marked with different colors to facilitate their identification.
Pneumatic tubes are used in a wide range of applications, including industrial machinery, automation systems and aviation. It is advisable to specify the tubes for your system taking into account the following criteria:
- Match the pneumatic tube material and wall thickness to the environment to be used and the compressed air pressure
- Determine the diameter of the pneumatic tube in relation to the compressed air flow rate
- The length of the pneumatic tube is determined according to the distance required for the application
- Use color coding for identification purposes, so that a user less familiar with the system can understand the operation more quickly
