Use a flow divider to double cylinder speed
A cylinder in a transfer unit on a production line transferred parts from an inbound conveyor to a sizing die, then to an outbound conveyor. Due to changes made upstream, the production line was now “waiting” for the transfer unit.
Fundamentals of Air logic
In the age of microchips and personal computers, air logic can still provide an effective, efficient, and inexpensive means of control for certain pneumatic machines.

CHAPTER 4: ISO Symbols and Glossary, part 3
Absolute viscosity - the ratio of shear stress to shear rate. It is a fluid's internal resistance to flow. The common unit of absolute viscosity is the poise. Absolute viscosity divided by fluid density equals kinematic viscosity. Absorption - The ...
CHAPTER 4: ISO Symbols
A family of graphic symbols has been developed to represent fluid power components and systems on schematic drawings. In the United States, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is responsible for symbol information. The Institute controls ...
