Air Preparation Equipment – Air Preparation Filters
SMC's upstream air preparation filters separate and remove mist and particles in compressed air that is difficult to remove with standard air filters. Depending on the unit, removal of contaminants down to 0.01 micron is possible. Large capacity filters and centrifugal water separators are also available.
Series AM can separate and remove oil mist in compressed air, which is difficult to remove by ordinary air filters and removes solid particles such as rust or carbon of more than 0.3 micron. It is the most suitable for air sources that drive pilot, metal seal solenoid valves.
Series AMH is a high precision, micro-mist separator combined with a prefilter. The AMH can separate and eliminate aerosol state oil mist in compressed air and remove carbon or dust of more than 0.01micron. The AMH series is suitable for drying/cleaning pneumatic measurement instruments (air micrometer) and precision parts.
The AMG series water separator is installed on the air pressure line to remove water drops from compressed air. It is available in 7 sizes with a variety of optional combinations to meet your application requirements.
Series AMD can separate and remove aerosol state oil mist in compressed air and remove carbon or dust of more than 0.01um. It should be used as prefilter for compressed air in precision instruments or for clean room requirements.
Series AME separates and absorbs aerosol state fine oil particles in compressed air and changes the oil lubricating compressed air to oil-free equivalent air. It should be applied for filtration of compressed air requiring high cleanliness for coating lines, compressed air for clean rooms and compressed air for equipment necessary to avoid oils.
Series AMF odor removal filter efficiently removes odor in compressed air with an activated carbon element. The unit is designed for use in food processing, pharmaceutical, and brewing systems where odor must be removed.
Series AFF is mounted to main piping to remove impurities like oil, water and foreign matter in compressed air. No screw threads or tie rods are required; therefore, removal and replacement of the element is made quick and easy. Series AFF improves the function of downward dryers, extends the life of precision filters and prevents trouble with equipment.
AFW large capacity compressed air filters and centrifugal water separators ensure high quality compressed air, which is essential to pneumatic and automation systems. Correct air preparation minimizes component failure, increases the operating life of equipment and reduces energy consumption. Filters and separators are suitable for use with mineral and synthetic oils, plus oil-free compressed air applications. Depending on the model, flow capacities are available from 150 to 16100 CFM. The AFW is available for US and Canadian customers only.
