The power available from compressed air can be used profitably in most industrial fields as a substitute forsteam,electricity or other force. compressed air saves time,cut costs & eases physical burdens.
some typical uses of compressed air are described below.
01) Acid & Chemical Industries :-
Agitation process in liquids can be carried with much ease with the help of compressed air in acid & allied industries. This plays an important part in soda manufacture,in hydrogenationof coal,in manufacture of synthetic ammonia & polymerization of ethylene.
02) Agriculture Industry :-
Compressed air is used in processing of food,farm maintenance by spraying of insectisides,inflating tyers of tractors & trucks.
03) Construction Industry :-
To dig a hole in land for foundation of bridges,building,dam structural work,sewageand tunnel & practically all other types of construction is helped by the compressed air to do the job better and faster.
04) Aircraft Industry :-
Air Operated drills,wrenches & rivetting hammers are used for completing various tasksin aircraft industry.To operate this tools compressed air is used.
05) Ammunation Depots :-
The safety of compressed air is well as its versatility makes it desirable form of powerfor many operations in ammunation depots.air operated ammunation hoists are spark free and quick acting.
06) Mining Operation :-
In mining machine where electric motors or combustion engines can not be usedbecause of risk of fire due to the presence of imflamable fumes & gases.compressed air power is paramountutility in running mining equipments.
07)Manufactureing Industries :-
Compressed air is mostly useful for blowing of pet bottles,to operate pneumaticcylinders,for proper mixing of formulation in pharamaceutical industry.
08) In general :-
Compressed air is used for starting of internal combustion engines,for spray painting,glass blowing.
Compressed air is most useful commodity because it can be store & use whenever we required.production costis less compare to others,neat & clean form of energy.in every industry compressed air is common utility.Few more important topics will be cover in next post.
