Dust, Bulk and Powder Environment Products
Pneumatic components used in a dusty environment require a different design mindset. The designs must incorporate a method of sealing the dusty outside from the internal pneumatic components as well as limiting electrical and thermal energy. Static electricity control is also a consideration in bulk and powder applications. SMC has products that are specifically designed to be used these types of applications.
