Pneumatic hoses and tubing create the pathways within a machine or system, to ensure high-quality airflow. They can also be used for transporting liquids, and are designed with flexible materials for adapting into different spaces.
Types Of Pneumatic Tubing
Pneumatic tubing is also available in a number of other materials both with and without reinforcement for use in standard applications. Orange Coast Pneumatics fittings incorporate a positive tube seal while the fitting is under pressure which allows polyurethane tubing to be used. These materials include fluoro-resin, nylon, polyurethane, polyethylene, and polyolefin. All of these contribute to flexible tubing, which can be cut or arranged as needed.
Choices for tubing include the sides for the outside diameter or OD, the color, and the length of the roll. Color coding can assist with organizing your system, especially if you have to use tubes with different ODs. Roll sizes work when you have machines with larger tube demands. The tubes can also be cut to fit the length of your machine.
Orange Coast Pneumatics manufactures Fluororesin tubing for use in environments involving high temperatures or corrosive fluids. Thus, they are best when chemical resistance is a necessity. Due to the nature of their material, they are corrosion-resistant to ensure durability.
If you need to comply with Food Sanitation laws in a smaller space, then we believe that you should try the TID series. Its flexibility is high, and it can fit into compact areas. The OD is remarkably small for this purpose, so it can handle delicate operations.
When working to prevent condensation of water vapors in tubes — the liquid can cause parts within a pneumatic machine to rust and clog — use moisture-control tubing. The IDK series is designed to prevent machine failure proactively. It does so by diffusing the water vapor outside of the piping.
Tubing is available in sizes of 1/8″, 5/32″, 3/16″, 1/4″, 5/16″, 3/8″, and 1/2″. Metric tubing sizes of 3.2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 16mm are available. Roll length can go up to 50 feet or 60 meters. Some work with push-to-connect fittings, to reduce the number of possible leaks.
Do you work in a pneumatic operation with welders? Then you may know that welders can potentially pose a fire hazard by releasing sparks into the atmosphere. Then you need spark-resistant tubing, that will ensure that you have no fires in the workplace. The outer layer has flame-resistant resin. We recommend using the TRB system for spark-resistant inner tubes.
Applications For Pneumatic Tubing
Quite simply, pneumatic tubing provides a flexible circulation of air. They are linked to a compressor, which creates the necessary pressure and assists in pumping the molecules into the nylon, fluoro-resin or polyethylene. The operator must decide how to arrange these within a pneumatic system.
Larger tubing can also be used in air pipelines to transfer money, messages, or goods. Air moves canisters filled with such items throughout connected lines. In fact, this was a safe way to transport money in department stores and backs. They were used throughout the 19th century and still are in some businesses. In the case of modern pneumatic tube transport systems, offices to dispatch and receive these canisters can be equipped with key cards and pads.
Another practical function of pneumatic tubing is that it can conduct neutron analysis within nuclear cores. At plants that provide this energy need to meet high safety standards, they can quickly transport samples with short half-lives. Such analysis saves lives in the long-run by allowing for constant research.
One of the benefits of such a pneumatic tubing system is that they are secure since it is hard for a person to intercept a canister. There is a lesser chance of damage in transportation and it saves human operators the time in carrying these items. One downside is that buildings and other structures need to have the system in place since it is hard to implement such tubing. Thus, it’s best used when the circulation and tubing are already placed in the area, or when a building is under construction.
