This paper introduces some applications of the pneumatic drives for heavy duty machine tools. Only the machine pneumatic drives proper are presented, not their associated devices too. These applications are used for heavy duty machine tools like centre and vertical lathes, gantry type milling machines, boring and milling machines and horizontal boring and milling machines. The pneumatic systems presented hereby are an independent part of the machine since the manufacturing stage of this one or they have been attached to the machine during its remanufacturing. They are formed of typified elements mostly, supplied by specialized manufacturers.

In order to choose the optimal shape of a device, in our case, of a centrifugal pump from the technological flow of a sewage treatment plant, we must find the optimal geometry of it that leads us to an energy efficiency, implicitly the operational cost. For this, we considered two pumps, one normal centrifuge and another with retractable rotor. After normal operating, it can be concluded that retractable rotor pumps have an 80% efficiency compared to normal 77%. Therefore, efficient running costs are lower for retractable rotor pumps, making them even more productive.
