Process Pneumatic


with John Dahlgren

Calendar Nov 10, 2023 at 8 am, runs for 4 weeks

Four sessions: 11/10, 11/17, 12/1, 12/8, 8 am - 5 pm

Amatrol’s Pneumatics Learning System covers how to operate and install basic pneumatic systems, analyze performance, and design basic pneumatic circuits. Pneumatic power is a foundation of industry used in applications across fields such as agriculture, pharmaceuticals, automation, and many more.

Pneumatics includes a basic pneumatics panel, basic pneumatics instrumentation panel, and a pneumatic hose and fittings set. This system uses industrial quality components for durability and to help learners prepare for what they will encounter on the job. Learners will use these components to study major topic areas such as pneumatic power systems, basic pneumatic circuits, principles of pneumatic pressure and flow, and pneumatic speed control circuits.

Pneumatics covers major topics including circuit connections, single-acting cylinder circuits, pneumatic leverage, pressure and volume, and speed control. Learners will study fundamental knowledge like: the operation of double-acting pneumatic cylinder; the function of a muffler; calculating the force output of a cylinder in retraction; and the effect of actuator load changes on flow control valve operation.

MiniSkills Electrical

In this training, trainees will be introduced to fundamental electrical safety (OSHA-10 based), Alternating Current (AC) and Direct Current (DC) in fundamentals and their applications. Concepts of circuits. Use of measurement devices such as digital volt-ohm-ampere meters, continuity and polarity devices will be introduced and used in hands-on application. Concepts of inductance and capacitance will be described and applied. Electrical schematics and pictorial-based plans for industrial use will be introduced. A combination of online learning reinforced with hands-on application activities will be used.

Electrical Safety Introduction (OSHA-10 based)

  • Identify major electrical hazards.
  • Describe types of electrical hazards.
  • Describe electrical protection methods.
  • Recognize employer requirements to protect workers from electrical hazards.
