Compressed Air as a Power Source

  • Fridolin Séquin
  • Rigmor Texhammar


The decision to use compressed air for our machines was based on the following considerations:
  1. 1)

    Easy availability.

  2. 2)

    Ease of sterilization of compressed-air machines.

  3. 3)

    Compressed-air machines can be stopped immediately because of their low inertia. Variable speed control is also easily achieved.

  4. 4)

    Air-driven machines are relatively lightweight.
