MN 218 - Pneumatics
Contact Hours: 4
College Level Prerequisites: None
Description: This course covers the fundamentals of moving fluids and pneumatic power. Students review design requirements of pneumatic compressors, circuits and robotic applications, and gain an understanding of the laws which apply to gases independent of heat, pressure and volume. Additionally, operating pneumatic valves and selecting proper pneumatic cylinders and motors, as well as pneumatic air preparation and distribution within normal operation of industrial applications is taught.
The course is offered in both a lecture / lab format as well as a 3 module format. For credit with module course the student must succesfully pass all three modules to gain full credit for the course. Also a student must succesfully complete each module before they may take the following module.
MN 218A (Pneumatics Module A) - Places emphasize on the basics of equipment, safety and basic operating principles of fluid power considering gas.
MN 218B (Pneumatics Module B) - Builds both partical and theory by developing an understanding of the laws governing gases, allowing students to have applications providing evidence of how and why these laws effect fluids and equipment.
MN 218C (Pneumatics Module C) - Completes the students understanding of circuits, design and troubleshooting for pneumatic systems. Including compressors, DCV, Regulators and Actuators.
