Pneumatic systems are widely spread in industry. One major downside of these systems is their low efficiency. In traditional systems the exhaust air from the actuators is released into the atmosphere, which results in a waste of energy. The goal of this study was to analyse the effect of a pneumatic energy saving unit that is recirculating exhaust air in pneumatic system. Results showed a clear improvement in energy efficiency of the system when this unit was applied.
