High-pressure pneumatic loops periodically need to return some of their pressurised air to the atmosphere to stay balanced. Whether they’re lifting, pushing, or holding, pneumatic exhausts and outlets help keep the internal psi levels in valves, cylinders, and pipelines stable and safe.
If you work with pneumatics, the chances are that you will recognise the famous Festo brand. Known for its high-quality solutions, Festo is a trailblazer in pneumatic circuit design. Hydrastar has worked in partnership with Festo for over 25 years, and strongly endorses the service of this crucial company. Here is an updated profile:
Air escaping from a pneumatic valve can be alarming. The consequences, at best, include reduced efficiency and, at worst, may lead to expensive damage. Diagnosing pneumatic system problems can be time-consuming, but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s a quick guide to troubleshooting!
Today’s cylinder catalogue is a toybox of variety. Many different sizes, designs, and configurations are available, but how do you know which one is optimal for your pneumatic requirements? Here’s a guide to selecting the right size:
If you use machinery that relies on compressed air to work, you should keep a careful lookout for common pneumatic faults. As compressed air systems rely on exact tuning and a tight enclosure to work correctly, secondary issues often end up damaging or breaking the entire system.
Hydrastar is the premier choice for industrial buyers in the UK looking to purchase custom-designed and off-the-shelf hydraulic and pneumatic components, cylinders, motors, and pipelines. With over 50,000 different products in stock and available for rapid dispatch, we’ll have what you need.
The UK lockdown to combat Coronavirus (COVID-19) has affected the hydraulic and pneumatics industry as much as any other. Nevertheless, there are some great, positive news stories breaking through in the world of hydraulics despite all the gloom elsewhere during the pandemic.
Here are our favorite uplifting stories about engineering, hydraulics, and pneumatics from the past few months.
Your system is only as durable as your weakest industrial hose. This statement works for any system and equipment that uses hoses. Even though hoses may look the same, they are highly sophisticated and diverse.
Choosing the wrong hose can lead to leaks, breakdowns, and potentially complete system failure. In order to select the right industrial hose, you need to take a careful approach to several parameters.
Improving the efficiency of your pneumatic system is central to minimising your manufacturing costs. Improving compressed air efficiency can cut electricity consumption by up to 50%: a significant saving for manufacturing companies! However, many operators are unaware that their pneumatic systems are performing inefficiently, even though a series of simple steps can make a significant difference.

Pneumatic systems are complex so, when a problem occurs, it tends to fill the operator with dread. To avoid lost production time it is important to troubleshoot the problem in a logical step-by-step way. Compressed air is potentially dangerous if safety is not observed and can cause serious injury, so when you experience troubleshooting problems with pneumatic systems, make sure you follow these steps: Continue reading “Troubleshooting Steps To Resolve Problems With Pneumatic Systems”
