Compressed air is used on board ship for a number of purposes and at varying pressures depending on that purpose.

  1. High-pressure air – 25 to 40 bar – for the starting and reversing of diesel engines.
  2. Medium pressure air – 7 bar – for general service air, deck air pneumatic systems, power positioners, servos and air puff soot blowers.
  3. Medium/ low-pressure air – 4 and 5 bar – "pneu-press" and "grinell sprinkler".
  4. Low-pressure air – 2 bar – pneumatic control systems.
