The P1V-A and P1V-B air motors from Parker Hannifin, provide an alternative to conventional AC and DC motors. These air motors are compact, lightweight and they use an innovative vane rotor design. A controlled flow of compressed air drives a high efficiency rotor enclosed in a steel cylinder. The air paths are constructed so that the direction of force is always at ninety degrees to the vanes as the rotor turns, producing optimum levels of power and torque. The vanes are spring mounted into the rotor, ensuring that they form a consistent, low friction seal against the cylinder wall, giving superior start-up, slow running and high speed characteristics. The powered rotor turns a keyed output shaft, which can be connected directly to a workpiece or to a conventional design of planetary, worm or helical gearbox.
