Asphalt, Concrete and Aggregates
SMC Products for Asphalt, Concrete & Aggregates Production
SMC has been providing pneumatic solutions to the resources sector since 1968, including development of products to withstand the harshest environments. This results in pneumatic systems that are capable of meeting stringent resource industry requirements like:
- Operation in wet, dusty, corrosive environments
- Continuous 24/7 operation
- Withstanding extreme pressures and temperatures
SMC products address the Asphalt, Concrete & Aggregates industry's need for robust performance while minimizing energy costs and downtime.
ALD Lube Unit
The ALD series, installed in a main airline, is designed to feed oil to various valves, air cylinders, air tools, etc. The use of the ALD series makes it possible to centralize control of lubrication to end-line components. This lubrication feeding system, in which oil is in the form of micro mist, ensures stable lubrication over long, complex piping systems.
Dust Collector Valves
Dust collector, 2 port solenoid valve has large port sizes and the flange and flange body type. These are designed with low noise construction and has the option of a silencer.
AFF Main Line Filter
The AFF70~90 improves upon the performance of the legacy AFF with a 1 μm particulate rating and water removal capabilities. Installation space is reduced by integrating the traditional AFF filtering function with the water removal capabilities of the AMG. Additionally, flow capacities are improved for greater applicability. A lightweight stainless steel bowl assembly improves handling and simplifies service.
AMG Water Separator
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.
ADH Heavy Duty Auto Drain
Heavy duty auto drain series ADH4000 can be maintained without changing existing piping. There is no need for electric power and no waste of air. Float style drain allows automatic drain discharge without electric power.
AMD Micro Mist Separator
The legacy series AMD micro mist separators range from 1/8" to 2" and feature a rugged aluminum housing. These coalescing filters are nominally rated at 0.01 micron for a second stage of oil removal after a particulate filter and a coarser coalescing unit.
AR-B Pneumatic Regulator
Air Regulator Series AR-B have been updated to the new urban white base color for a clean modern look. The AR-B series has a maximum set pressure of 125 psi and offers embedded gauge and pressure switch options not found in the AR-A while maintaining panel mounting interchangeability with the previous AR models. The locking adjustment knob prevents accidental setting changes. Options include a mounting bracket and set nuts for panel mounting. The modular design of the AR-B series connects with other SMC air preparation equipment of similar size. The new AR-B is available in six body sizes with piping from 1/8" to 1" in Rc, NPT and G thread.
VHS Residual Pressure Relief Valve
The VHS series provides a convenient means of isolating supplied pressure in a pneumatic system and exhausting downstream pressure for maintenance purposes. The units can be locked in the exhaust position and can be an integral part of an energy isolation system. Air flow direction is easily identified by handle orientation and labelling.
ISE Pressure Switches
Pneumatic sensors with buttons and a display to set and read values from an operator's position.
VFS Heavy Duty 5 Port Solenoid Valve
Series VFS consists of 5 port pilot solenoid valves with metal seals and base mounted or body ported type manifolds. Base mounted manifolds are available in plug-in and non plug-in styles. Body ported manifolds are available with bar or separate type manifold bases. Port sizes range from 1/8 to 3/4 with Rc(PT), NPTF & G(PF) thread types available. Various options also available.
NCA1 NFPA Cylinder
Series NCA1 medium duty tie rod cylinders are NFPA interchangeable, have a crimped piston rod assembly, are pre-lubricated and available in 11 mounting styles. Bore sizes range from 1.5 to 4 inches. The NCA1 expanded line of medium duty cylinders offer bore sizes ranging from 5 to 8 inches, and come standard with adjustable air cushion.
AF-X2729 Water Separator
The element-less specification eliminates the need for replacement. Air containing water droplets is rotated to remove them by centrifugal force.
IDFB Refrigerated Air Dryer
Series IDFB*E refrigerted air dryers are suitable for use in aftercooled systems with compressors up to ~100 hp (depending on dew point desired). These durable units have simple control systems and are easily serviced.
XT316 Air Shocker
Air shocker is a pneumatic piston type shock generator. Removes plugging due to bridging or adhesion of bulk material inside a hopper or chute.
Dust collector reverse pulse jet valves are the filter cleaning components for baghouses (dust collection systems) for preventing dust explosions by removing particulates from the air. The JSXFA dust collector valve is engineered with a robust elastomer diaphragm that requires no spring to shift, enhancing its service life to 10 million plus cycles while producing faster response times and energy savings.
The JSXFA diaphragm valve will open and close rapidly to create a short, intense blast of air with sonic shock wave to dislodge accumulated dust from bag filters and cartridge filters without disrupting regular operations.
The JSXFA can be actuated by either solenoid or air operated pilot valves, available with enclosures.
