What is air
What is Air?

The weight of a

one square inch

column of air

(from sea level

to the outer atmosphere,

@ 680 F, & 36% RH)

is 14.69 pounds.

In a typical cubic foot of air ---

there are over 3,000,000

particles of dust, dirt, pollen,

and other contaminants.

Industrial air may be 3 times (or more)

more polluted.

Pressure
Pressure

  • It should be noted that the SI unit of pressure is the Pascal (Pa)

  • 1 Pa = 1 N/m2 (Newton per square meter)

  • This unit is extremely small and so, to avoid huge numbers in practice, an agreement has been made to use the bar as a unit of 100,000 Pa.

  • 100,000 Pa = 100 kPa = 1 bar

  • Atmospheric Pressure

  • =14.696 psi =1.01325 bar =1.03323 kgf/cm2.


P1 x V1 = P2 x V2

P2 = P1 x V1 V2

V2 = P1 x V1 P2

Example P2 = ?

P1 = Pa (1.013bar)

V1 = 1m³

V2 = .5m³

P2 = 1.013 x 1 .5

= 2.026 bar

Isothermic change (Boyle’s Law)with constant temperature, the pressure of a given mass of gas is inversely proportional to its volume


V1 = T1

V2 T2

V2 = V1 x T2 T1

T2 = T1 x V2 V1

Example V2 = ?

V1 = 2m³

T1 = 273°K (0°C)

T2 = 303°K (30°C)

V2 = 2 x 303 273

= 2.219m³

Isobaric change (Charles Law)…at constant pressure, a given mass of gas increases in volume by 1 of its volume for every degree C in temperature rise. 273

P1 x P2 T1 x T2

P2 = P1 x T2 T1

T2 = T1 x P2 P1

Example P2 = ?

P1 = 4bar

T1 = 273°K (O°C)

T2 = 298°K (25°C)

P2 = 4 x 298 273

= 4.366bar

Force formula transposed

D = 4 x FE  x P

Example

FE = 1600N

P = 6 bar.

D = 4 x 1600 3.14 x 600,000

D = 6400 1884000

D = .0583m

D = 58.3mm

A 63mm bore cylinder would be selected.

Force formula transposed


Load ratio
Load Ratio

  • This ratio expresses the percentage of the required force needed from the maximum available theoretical force at a given pressure.

  • L.R.= required force x 100% max. available theoretical force

  • Maximum load ratios

    • Horizontal….70%~ 1.5:1

    • Vertical…….50%~ 2.0:1


Speed control
Speed control

  • The speed of a cylinder is define by the extra force behind the piston, above the force opposed by the load

  • The lower the load ratio, the better the speed control.


Angle of movement
Angle of Movement

1. If we totally neglect friction, which cylinder diameter is needed to horizontally push a load with an 825 kg mass with a pressure of 6 bar; speed is not important.

2. Which cylinder diameter is necessary to lift the same mass with the same pressure of 6 bar vertically if the load ratio can not exceed 50%.

3. Same conditions as in #2 except from vertical to an angle of 30°. Assume a friction coefficient of 0.2.

4. What is the force required when the angle is increased to 45°?


Y axes, (vertical lifting force)….. sin x M

X axes, (horizontal lifting force)….cos x  x M

Total force = Y + X

 = friction coefficients


Example

 = .01

F = ________ (N)

150kg

40°

Force Y = sin  x M = .642 x 150 = 96.3 N

Force X = cos  x  x M = .766 x .01 x 150 = 1.149 N

Total Force = Y + X = 96.3 N + 1.149 N = 97.449 N


 = __

Relative humidity r h actual water content x 100 s aturated quantity dew point

Example 1

T = 25°C

r.h = 65%

V = 1m³

From table 3.7 air at 25°C contains 23.76 g/m³

23.76 g/m³ x .65 r.h = 15.44 g/m³

Relative humidity (r.h.) = actual water content X 100% saturated quantity (dew point)

13


Relative humidity example 2

V = 10m³

T1= 15°C

T2= 25°C

P1 = 1.013bar

P2 = 6bar

r.h = 65%

? H²0 will condense out

From 3.17, 15°C = 13.04 g/m²

13.04 g/m² x 10m³ = 130.4 g

130.4 g x .65 r.h = 84.9 g

V2 = 1.013 x 10 = 1.44 m³ 6 + 1.013

From 3.17, 25°C = 23.76 g/m²

23.76 g/m² x 1.44 m³ = 34.2 g

84.9 - 34.2 = 50.6 g

50.6 g of water will condense out

  • Sonic flow = P1 + 1.013 > 1.896 x (P2 + 1,013)

  • D = 63mm (.063m)

  • d = 15mm (.015m)

  • F =  x (D² -d²) x P 4

Example1

M = 100kg following requirements:

P = 5bar

 = 32mm

 = 0.2

F = /4 x D²x P = 401.9 N

From chart 6.16

90KG = 43.9% Lo.

To find Lo for 100kg

43.9 x 100 = 48.8 % Lo. 90

Calculate remaining force

401.9 x 48.8(.488) = 196N 100

assume a cylinder efficiency of 95%

196 x 95 = 185.7 N 100

Newtons = kg • m/s² , therefor

185.7 N = 185.7 kg • m/s²

divide mass into remaining force

m/s² = 185.7 kg • m/s² 100kg

= 1.857 m/s²

P = _______bar

 = _______mm

Qt = 3.5 x 4 x 24

Qt = 336 l/min.


Peak flow
Peak Flow following requirements:

  • For sizing the valve of an individual cylinder we need to calculate Peak flow. The peak flow depends on the cylinders highest possible speed. The peak flow of all simultaneously moving cylinders defines the flow to which the FRL has to be sized.

  • To compensate for adiabatic change, the theoretical volume flow has to be multiplied by a factor of 1.4. This represents a fair average confirmed in a high number of practical tests.

Q = 1.4 x D² (m) x  x (P + Pa) x stroke(m) x # strokes/min x 1000 4


Example. following requirements:

 = 80

stroke = 400mm

s/min = 12 x 2

P = 6bar

From table 6.20... 80 at 6 bar = 4.87 (4.9)l/100mm stroke

Qt= Q x stroke(mm) x # of extend + retract strokes 100

Qt = 4.9 x 400 x 24 100

Qt = 4.9 x 4 x 24

Qt = 470.4 l/min.
