Hello everyone, for fun I'm building a small automated assembly station in my bedroom. A big part of automation is fluid power. That being said, I want to make sure I add some safety features into my Pneumatic line so I don't blow a hole in my roof.
Attached you'll see an image of my proposed schematic.
It consists of the following:
1) Small hobby 12v 120psi Air Compressor with NO tank or safety features. Just a quick connect for a hose.
2) I purchased a tank to connect to my compressor. It is just a 2 gallon tank with two 1/4" NPT ports. No pressure relief or any other safety device.
3) The output from the tank will run into an Air Pressure Regulator
4) From here I will run directly into my solenoid valve
5) Pneumatic Cylinder
I know I probably need at least a pressure relief and/or a shutoff lever.
I am completely new to fluid power, so I'm not sure what spec/ guidelines here are.
I assume the pressure relief valve would be for backpressure, so after the tank?
Then before the tank would be a shutoff valve (lever) so I can disconnect the compressor
Do you guys have any input?
Anything would be appreciated!
Thanks (:November 22, 2020 at 9:23 am #20806adminKeymaster
Hi, there are lot of things to consider when building a system. I would suggest you go through some online training sites to learn more before you begin.
