Advantages and Disadvantages of Pneumatic Control System


 Simplicity of the components and no complex structure
 Easy maintainability
 Useful in flame-proof applications
 Low cost of installation
 Good reliability and reproducibility
 Speed of response is relatively slow but steady
 Limited power capacity for large mass transfer


 Great distance lag can be a crucial setback with pneumatic controls.
 Slow response
 Difficult to operate in sub-normal temperatures
 Copper piping is vulnerable to damage
 Pipe-couplings can give rise to leaks in certain ambient conditions
