Energy: Air Cut Technologies

Air Cut Technologies

System X-Block creates a closed system on the minus side of a single or a group of pneumatic cylinders. Unlike a standard system, little to no new compressed air is needed for the return stroke. The pressure contained in the inner loop generates the force needed for the return stroke. Additional energy savings are realized as the system can operate with considerably less pressure usually on both sides of the cylinder.

In short, the system X-Block:

• Stores the air usually on the negative side of the cylinder(s) and compensates with additional air, if leakage.

• The stored air acts both as a shock absorber for the inner rod and as a spring for the return stroke

• The pressure for both sides of the cylinder(s) is regulated with X-Block to achieve optimal efficiency in terms of both running efficiency and energy consumption.

• System X-Block saves less air in applications where full power is needed for the return movement and where full power is needed to hold the stroke in position for extended periods of time.
