Operating a pneumatic cylinder on hot air

  1. Sep 1, 2013 #1
    I have a portable compressed air cylinder - pressure 10 kg/cm2 - powering a small reciprocating pneumatic piston/cylinder assembly.To increase the usage time of the system,I want to fit electric air heaters in the cylinder on both sides of the piston as well as in the compressed air cylinder.What will be the pressure increase with temperature?

    Roughly, p = kT, T = 273 + deg C. But mind that it don't blow p!
