Welcome to Rowse Pneumatics, the specialist division of Rowse where pneumatics is our particular focus. We've been building up our expertise in this field for many years; our company was originally founded in Plymouth in 2004. As our network of valued customers has expanded outwards from the South West, so our portfolio of pneumatic products has grown and diversified. And the further we move into the 21st century, the more we find that pneumatics is taking over from traditional mechanics. We're a forerunner in that area, so if you want to know what's new in pneumatics, you'll find it here.

Troubleshooting Pneumatic Systems

Post By: Ryan King On: 04-05-2021 Read Time: 4 minutes

A pneumatic system is a complex collection of interlinked components. Like any machine, these need regular tuning to run at peak performance. This usually means making frequent adjustments to correct minor imbalances, and regular check-ups...

How To Size Pneumatic Pipe/Tubing

Post By: Ryan King On: 06-04-2021 Read Time: 5 minutes

It's not uncommon for a pneumatic system to be running inefficiently because it can't get an adequate airflow. This is usually because the compressed air pipework or tubing is too narrow, and isn't delivering enough pressure...

What Is An FRL?

Post By: Ryan King On: 25-03-2021 Read Time: 3 minutes

An FRL is a combination assembly for your pneumatic system, comprising a filter, a pressure regulator and a lubricator. Even atmospheric air isn't clean, as you can see when you watch dust motes dancing in the sunshine...

When To Replace Pneumatic Filters

Post By: Ryan King On: 08-03-2021 Read Time: 4 minutes

As we know to our cost, air is not pure, and can pick up even more contaminants as it travels through a pneumatic system. A filtration unit of some kind is therefore essential to keep your pneumatic machinery in tip-top condition...

Pneumatics today is a cutting edge industry that forms an integral part of Industry 4.0, or the fourth industrial revolution. Smart factories now boast machinery that's seamlessly connected in a communication network which you can control with portable devices. This Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is enabling radical changes in the way we work, so that modern pneumatically driven systems are often fully automated.

A lot of this is due to the gradual integration of artificial intelligence, and the increased use of logic controllers and Human Machine Interfaces (HMI). The scope of pneumatic capabilities is rapidly developing from a well-established technology into an industry leader, in a wide variety of sectors and diverse applications. Pneumatic systems are inherently reliable, as well as simpler and safer to use, even in hazardous environments.

Today's pneumatics is also focused on improving energy efficiency, in an effort to reduce both consumption and costs. Environmental issues are very much to the fore, and industry is working towards a cleaner and less destructive form of energy use. Developments in advanced pneumatic technologies also benefit productivity and system maintenance, and it's our aim at Rowse Pneumatics to bring you all the news and latest advances as they happen.
