Rationale
Different types of pneumatic elements like compressors, valves and actuators are essential in all the manufacturing industries. This course is designed to develop understanding of such pneumatic systems which are widely used in machine tools, material handling, construction, mining, elevators, material processing equipment and other fields. This course also enables the diploma students to operate and troubleshoot different types of pneumatic systems in industries.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practicals should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Select pneumatic power system based on given conditions.
ii. Select, operate and maintain various pneumatic elements such as compressors, valves, actuators and accessories.
iii.Design pneumatic circuits by selecting suitable components for a given application.
iv.Use and maintain various pneumatic devices and systems.
v. Install, maintain, and troubleshoot various pneumatic systems.
vi.Develop hydro pneumatics circuit diagram for given application
