Operator Inspection: Pneumatic System Inspection is part one of the Operator Inspection nine-part training series.
The course teaches students the basic inspection procedures for pneumatic systems and their components. It is designed to introduce the basics of pneumatic pressure, including the properties of air, the basic operation and components of the pneumatic system, and establishing general inspection points for pneumatic components.
Course objectives include:
- Understand the basic characteristics of air, including pressure, flow, and volume
- Explain how external conditions can affect air
- Identify the operating principles of pneumatic systems, including Pascal's Law
- Identify the components and function of the air compression system
- Understand the general safety procedures for operating a pneumatic system
- Differentiate between suction pressure and discharge pressure
