Determine Effect of Each Fault for Pneumatic Force-balance System

Determine the final effect of each fault for this pneumatic force-balance system:

Pneumatic Force-balance System

Pneumatic Amplifying Relay

  • Clogged nozzle
  • Clogged restriction
  • Clogged tube at supply port of amplifying relay
  • Broken leaf spring inside amplifying relay
  • Major hole or tear in the diaphragm inside the amplifying relay

Be sure to explain the final effects of each of these faults!

Answer:

  • Clogged nozzle: output pressure saturates high
  • Clogged restriction: output pressure saturates low
  • Clogged tube at supply port of amplifying relay: output pressure saturates low
  • Broken leaf spring inside amplifying relay: output pressure may saturate high or possibly oscillate
  • Major hole or tear in diaphragm inside amplifying relay: The system responds very little to the applied force.
