Problem aim:
1. Test the knowledge to read and interpret pneumatic and hydraulic fluid
power diagrams.
Q1. How are you symbolizing a control valve with correct numbering
system according to ISO 1219 standards? Explain with the relevant
drawings. Give symbols of double solenoid 5/3 valves and manually
operated with spring return 4/2 valves. [P1.1]
Q2. A pneumatic motor is planned to be used at a vehicle workshop as a nut
fastening and tightening tool. Design and produce a circuit for a
pneumatic reversible motor having speed control in both directions.
[P.3.2] [M2].
Q3. Two sensors are inspecting items travelling on a conveyer. Sensors give
following digital outputs.
Sensor 1: 0- Idle
1- Item Arrived
Sensor 2: 0-Good Item
1-Bad Item
It is necessary to develop a system to,
1. Hold each item
2. Print on each item whether it is good or bad.
Q3.1 Evaluate the advantages of using pneumatic actuators for this task [P4.1]
Q4. The factory has a 100kg metal sheet lifting mechanism developed using a
pneumatic cylinder.
a. Calculate the minimum resultant piston area required to lift the metal
sheet if the system pressure is 6Mpa. [P4.2]
Q5. Consider the system shown below.
Piston A has a diameter of 20cm and it is having a full bore length of
40cm. Diameter of Piston B is 40cm and it has a load of 200kg acting on
its rod.
Calculate the height the piston B will move for a complete play of Piston
A, if you used,
a. An uncompressible fluid.
b. Air (with a compression ratio of 1% per 1kPa).
