How Air Springs Work
An air spring is a spring device that uses compressed air as an elastic medium, and is often used in automobile suspension systems and industrial machinery.
It works as follows:
Construction: The air spring consists of a closed flexible rubber or polyurethane bag filled with compressed air.
Compression and expansion: When an external force acts on the air spring, such as when a vehicle passes over a bumpy road, the air spring will be compressed, and the volume of air in the compressed air bag will decrease.
Elastic recovery: When the external force decreases or disappears, the compressed air will gradually return to its original shape through elastic properties, making the air spring re-expand.
Load support: By controlling the quantity and pressure of compressed air, the hardness and load-bearing capacity of the air spring can be adjusted, so as to realize the suspension and support function of the vehicle or machinery.
To sum up, the working principle of the air spring is based on the compressibility and elastic properties of the air. It provides elastic support and shock absorption by compressing and releasing the compressed air, making it suitable for suspension systems and supports under various loads and road conditions. device.
