Double Acting Pneumatic Cylinder, Foot Operated Direction Control Valve, Pneumatic Source


In automobiles, clutch is used to transmit the power from driving shaft to drive shaft by engaging and disengaging the clutch plate and flywheel of vehicle. In clutch, one shaft is connected to an engine and other shaft provides output power or work. Now a days, due to improvement in technologies there were lots of new updates in new vehicles. New vehicles were introduced with new features like automatic brake system, power steering system etc. This project is proposed to reduce the efforts required to press the clutch and to disengage the clutch in less time. This clutch operates with the help of direction control valve and double acting cylinders. Due to use of two double acting cylinder, smooth engagement and disengagement of clutch takes place. Due to this project, driver will experience more comfort while driving the vehicle. Thus this project will be more comfortable in heavy vehicles.
