Abstract

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.
