This course aims to enable technical personnel to understand the Pneumatic and Electropneumatic Automation System better; improve participants operation, maintenance and troubleshooting skills. The Pneumatics and Electropneumatic course is a comprehensive, highly practical and interactive course. You will have an opportunity to discuss pneumatic systems specification, construction, design-applications, operations, maintenance and troubleshooting issues and be provided with the most up-to-date information and best practice in dealing with the subject.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the basic physical principles of compressed air, basic SI units and other physical quantities used in Pneumatic and Electro-Pneumatic systems
  2. Read pneumatic schematics
  3. Understand the operation and application of standard pneumatic valves and actuators
  4. Perform simple circuit design using standard symbology and functions such as automatic return, logic control, speed control, pressure sequencing, reduced actuator forces and timing
  5. Work safely with pneumatic components and systems
  6. Troubleshoot and repair simple pneumatic problems
  7. Understand essential pneumatic terms and understand their key applications
  8. Discuss the correct operation, control sequences and procedures for the safe operation of various pneumatic systems

Target Participants

Maintenance Technicians/Engineers, Supervisors, Electromechanical personnel, and newly recruited Technicians
