Pneumatic technology uses pressured gas to drive some sort of mechanical motion. The most common gas used in pneumatic technology is dry air. The air must be dry as moisture has different compressive qualities. Pneumatic technology is very similar to hydraulic technology, however the fluid used to drive the motion here is always a liquid.
Pneumatic systems are operated using a central pneumatic device (such as an air motor or compressor) and utilise manual or automatic solenoid valves to control the airflow around the system.
Pneumatic systems contain many components, pneumatic straight threaded to tube adaptors being one example.
Pneumatic straight threaded-to-tube adaptors have one threaded side and the other with a tube connection. The threaded side connects to the system and the other to the tube.
Pneumatic straight threaded-to-tube adaptors come in a variety of diameters, thread sizes, grades and materials. These adaptors allow the user to change the connections in a system so an assortment of hoses can be attached.
