Energy saving with close circuit pneumatic system
AbstractThe article analyses the possibility of performance and knowledge up to this time about close circuit pneumatic systems. All facts declare that the closed circuit has the possibility for energy saving. Experimental research and theoretical analysis shows that using the closed pneumatic system combined with a servo-system does not change the performance of the actuator in relation to its performance in an open system. Furthermore, the close circuit approach offers the advantage of elimination of oil contamination from the surroundings, reduction of the effects of moisture contamination and reduction of noise emission from exhaust flows to the atmosphere.
