It should also be noted that the pressure ratio of many pressure amplifiers is boldly printed on the body of the unit as shown in Fig. 2-26. Pressure amplifiers can also be set up to operate as hydraulic pumps for applications that do not require particularly high flow rates. In the case of a hydraulic pump, a second hydraulic cylinder is added, and the pneumatic cylinder is operated as a double-acting unit. An automatic four-way valve is used to control the cycle of the pump. Hydraulic fluid is supplied to the cylinders from a reservoir, and the flow is controlled via the check valves.
These are commonly found in muffler and front-end shops where they are used to split exhaust pipes and dislodge ball joints. This type of air hammer is very inexpensive and will normally be found in any mechanic’s toolbox. Figure 2-29 shows a typical jackhammer. You have probably seen jackhammers used for breaking up concrete by local road and utility crews. These tools are very powerful and are not for the faint hearted. Figure 2-30 shows a rivet/bolt cutter. The chisel point is placed at the base of the head of the rivet or bolt to be cut.
Pneumatic controls are generally about one-third the size of their electrical counterparts and they have the added advantage of being impervious to water. Washdown rated electrical controls are extremely expensive and have a rather short life expectancy. Food processing plants, for instance, require regular washdown operations. Pneumatic controls are ideal for this industry and provide many years of service in these otherwise hostile environments. Another arena is petrochemical plants, where pneumatic controls shine.
