The vane air motor is a power device that uses compressed air as the working medium and uses the expansion effect of compressed air to convert pressure energy into mechanical energy. The air motor is used in mining, rock drilling, drilling, loading and other mechanical equipment power, and is widely used in ships, offshore platforms, metallurgy, papermaking and petrochemical industries.
ATO.com online store offers six kinds of vane air motor for you to choose. ATO series pneumatic vane motor has a wide range power from 300W to 7000W, with rotate speed 200 rpm to high speed 10000 rpm. The air vane motor has simple structure, small size, light weight, large horsepower, easy operation, convenient maintenance and whicy has the characteristics of water resistance, fire resistance, explosion resistance, moisture and dust resistance, and the pneumatic motor can work in harsh environments such as humidity, high temperature, and high dust.
ATO vane air motors are produced with power ratings up to approximately 7 kW. To understand how a pneumatic vane motor works is the important step.
The gas with a certain pressure reaches the air distribution plate through the air-controlled reversing valve. At this time, the gas enters the rotary vane air motor in two ways: the pressure gas enters the brake chamber and pushes it away brake piston; or the pressure gas enters the motor chamber from the motor air inlet. The pressurized gas generates pressure on the blades and overcomes a certain friction force to push the high torque air motor rotor to rotate. When the blades leave the air inlet 1 behind the chamber, the chamber is at a critical position A. When the front vane of this chamber reaches the main exhaust port, the adiabatic expansion of the chamber is over and it is at the critical position B.
When the rear vane of this chamber leaves the main exhaust port, enters the critical position C. Chamber undergoes adiabatic compression stage. When the rear vane of the chamber leaves the auxiliary exhaust port, the auxiliary exhaust of this chamber ends and the next cycle of air motor is entered. In this way, the vane type air motor can continuously rotate and output the speed and torque outward.
