SMC Products for Mineral Extraction & Processing Applications
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 Mining industry's need for robust performance while minimizing energy costs and downtime.
CQ2 Standard Cylinder
IL Booster Relay
Booster relay series IL100 is used when the piping between instrumentation and operational area is long, or when operational area has large capacity. Series IL100 can help accelerate actuation speed considerably.
CS1 Large Bore Cylinder
Series CS1 air cylinder is SMC's largest bore cylinder. This series is available in bore sizes up to 300mm and stroke lengths up to 2400mm. Additionally, the CS1 can be ordered auto-switch capable. Other options include, large bore sizes up to 300mm, various mounting configurations, cushion for noise damping.
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.
VFN 5 Port Solenoid Valve
SY 5 Port Solenoid Valve
SMC has improved product performance and reliability with the redesigned SY series valve. The SY3000 and SY5000 have the same valve width as their predecessors, but the flow has been increased by up to 80%, allowing the valve size to be reduced. A built-in strainer in the pilot valve prevents trouble caused by foreign matter. By using H-NBR seal material for the main valve and seals, Ozone resistance has been improved. Side, top and bottom port/pipe directions are available to allow flexible installation. The SY is available in body ported or base mounted styles, and can be used individually or manifold mounted.
VX2 2 Port Valves
The VX2 series is 2 Port direct solenoid valve for general purpose air, medium vacuum and water. Available body materials include resin, aluminum, brass or stainless steel with port size up to 1/2 inch. Resin body is offered with one touch fitting to reduce installation time. It is also available as a manifold to reduce piping.
ISE Pressure Switches
Pressure Switch series has been designed to meet the diverse needs of our customer base. Various options include IP65 protection, 2 color display, fluid switch, stainless construction, and high purity options. A compact size option also exists. Applications for digital pressure switches include areas such as positioning, leakage testing, and supply pressure verification.
VHS Residual Pressure Relief Valve
AR-B Pneumatic Regulator
AMD Micro Mist Separator
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.
AFF Main Line Filter
The new AFF70~90D improves upon the performance of the classic AFF with a 1 μm particulate rating and increased water removal capabilities. Additionally, flow capacities are improved over the current models. Installation space is saved by integrating the traditional AFF filtering function with the water removal of the AMG. A lightweight stainless bowl assembly saves improves handling and simplifies service.
IDFB Refrigerated Air Dryer
IDF refrigerated air dryer series, in compliance with the Montreal Protocol Regulations, uses refrigerants R134a and R407C to prevent any damage to the earth's ozone layer. (Medium size series use R22). Series IDF can accommodate an inlet temperature of 40°C. Corrosion resistance is improved by using a stainless steel, plate type heat exchanger.
KQ2 one-touch, metric and inch size fittings are available in a wide variety of sizes, body styles and thread types. The use of a special profile seal allows the KQ2 to be used for a wide range of pressures from a low vacuum up to a pressure of 1MPa. The KQ2 release collar releases both the chuck and collet to provide a low disconnection force for easy removal of the tubing.
SMC manufactures Fluoro-resin tubing for use in environments involving high temperatures and/or corrosive fluids. Pneumatic tubing is also available in a number of other materials both with and without reinforcement for use in standard applications. SMC fittings incorporate a positive tube seal while the fitting is under pressure which allows polyurethane tubing to be used.
Tubing is available in sizes of 1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", and 1/2". Metric tubing sizes of 3.2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 16mm are available.
