85-IP Main

A sample copy of the Intermediate Pneumatics Student Reference Guide is also included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training, making it the perfect course takeaway.

Intermediate Pneumatics Training System | Hands-On Fluid Power Skills

Learning System: 85-IP

Amatrol’s Intermediate Pneumatics Training System (85-IP) builds on basic pneumatic skills by introducing more advanced concepts such as air logic, ways to decelerate a pneumatic cylinder, and how to prevent condensation in a pneumatic circuit. Learners will have the opportunity to study these concepts while working with a hands-on training module, which enables practicing skills such as connecting and operating a two-way valve and changing an air filter element; this approach of simultaneously teaching theory and practice reinforces each element and results in a thorough understanding of the topic.

The Intermediate Pneumatics training system includes directional control valves, check valve, pneumatic cylinder, Venturi block, assorted filter elements, and much more. Amatrol’s commitment to using top-flight, industry-standard materials ensures that learners work with components they’ll actually see on the job. This attention to quality and detail culminates in a durable, attractive, user-friendly industrial training system that will last for years.

After completing the Intermediate Pneumatics curriculum, learners can continue to build on these skills by moving on to Amatrol’s Advances Pneumatics (85-AP) and the Pneumatics Troubleshooting (950-PT1) training systems. Advanced Pneumatics covers topics such as motor loads, pneumatic cylinder loads, and quick exhaust valves, while Pneumatic Troubleshooting is the first product to offer a realistic troubleshooting experience for learners because the faults are inserted throughout the system.

Learning Topics

  • Pneumatic Directional Control Valve Applications
  • Air Logic
  • Pneumatic Maintenance
  • Cam Valves
  • Two-Way Valves
  • Externally Piloted Valves
  • Air Filtration
  • Water Removal
  • Lubrication
  • Servicing Pneumatic Components

Real-World Industrial Pneumatics Applications

Intermediate Pneumatics’ curriculum will explain how concepts and skills are applied in real-world environments including petroleum refineries and food processing plants. As two examples, Intermediate Pneumatics will explain how an externally air-piloted pneumatic directional control valve is implemented in a pneumatic punch press and why sliding plate spools are preferable to other spools in a cement plant.

Additional Pneumatics Training Opportunities

The next levels for purchase in Amatrol’s pneumatics training are Advanced Pneumatics (85-AP), Basic Pneumatic Troubleshooting (950-PTB1), and Advanced Pneumatic Troubleshooting (950-PT1). Advanced Pneumatics introduces learners to advanced pneumatic components such as vacuum gauges, manometers, vacuum generator, and orifice plate flowmeter. Advanced Pneumatic Troubleshooting models real world electro-pneumatic machines with 30 faults that can be inserted into the system. Advanced Pneumatic Troubleshooting covers topics such as system tuning, startup/shutdown, and rodless cylinders.

Practice Hands-On Pneumatic Maintenance Skills

One of the major topics within the Intermediate Pneumatics’ curriculum is the maintenance of pneumatic components and systems. Because contamination of pneumatic circuits can greatly decrease performance or even breakdown certain components, learners will benefit from the industrial maintenance skills they’ll acquire from practicing on the Intermediate Pneumatics training module. Specific topics include how to select the correct air filter, how to calibrate pressure gauges, the functions of after coolers and dryers, and the process of aerosol lubrication. This pneumatic training course is presented in a multimedia eLearning format that features interactive quizzes and exercises, 3D graphics and illustrations, and audio voiceovers of all of the text.

Free Learning Management System (LMS)

Amatrol eLearning is easy-to-use for both students and instructors. Its web-based interface is simple to navigate and available on any WebGL-compatible Internet browser. Instructors love Amatrol eLearning for its simple, yet sophisticated Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS allows instructors to create custom courses, monitor student participation, track course progress, assess knowledge levels prior to a course, and test knowledge levels after completion. Learners appreciate the fact that they can start and stop as needed, moving through each Amatrol course at their own pace. If a self-review reveals that they didn’t understand a particular topic as well as they thought they did, they can revisit it before moving on.
