The authors consider the issue of energy saving in pneumatic drives of the technological equipment. The principal circuit of the energy saving pneumatic drive is provided. The energy consumption decreases at the retardation of the output element of the pneumatic drive with the help of reverse pressure, blocking the pneumatic cylinder chambers and the recuperation of the energy of the air, compressed in the output chamber, in an additional volume, with its subsequent use for the pneumatic drive output element reverse motion. The authors present a mathematical model of dynamic processes, describing the acceleration and retardation of the pneumatic drive output element. Changing the initial parameters of the additional volume provides an opportunity for the efficient control of energy and speed-drive characteristics. The authors compared the known pneumatic drive retardation methods with the suggested retardation method by means of the energy recuperation with pre-set initial parameters.
