Pneumatic Tube, all there is to know about it!

The pneumatic tube system is a technical equipment in which cylindrical carriers are transported by air pressure, or by vacuum through a network of tubes. The system is not very well known anymore, but is still widly used for transporting physical objects in i.e. factories, hospitals and stores.

Pneumatic.Tube is an online or virtual museum. Here you will find technical, historical and comical information about the past, the present and the possible future of the pneumatic tube system. I hope that through this website, the long life of the transport technology pneumatic tubes won't be forgotten!
