Pneumatic technology is used in vehicle tires, air brakes of buses, trucks or trains, compressed-air engines, vacuum pumps, and more. Hydraulic systems are used in vehicle braking systems, power steering systems, shock absorbers, material handling vehicles such as excavators and aerial work platforms, and more. Making sure the right gas or liquid pressure is administered to these systems is crucial, especially when we speak about hydraulics, where the liquid in the system may be flammable. If the pressure or the temperature range is not correct, this can cause dangerous leaks and accidents.
