Process automation primarily controls fluid flow (air, water, oil and steam), regulates fluid pressure, measures and doses volume, proportionally mixes multiple fluids and countless other tasks by using diaphragm pumps, diaphragm valves, shut-off valves, pinch valves, microfluidic valves and standard 2-way On/Off valves.
SMC fluid process products support industries: Food & Beverage, Life Sciences, Medical Equipment, Blood Analyzers, Water and Wastewater Treatment, Dust Collection (e.g. baghouses), Power Generation, Mining and Mineral Processing, Pulp & Paper etc.
Process Valves for Various Fluids
Solenoid control valves are good for general purpose use. Direct acting poppet valves available in normally closed and normally open varieties. Available in a varietey of materials including resin, aluminum, brass and stainless steel.
Process control solenoid valves for oil (fluid viscosity not exceeding 50 mm²/s) is available with brass and stainless steel body. Three body sizes are available, with port size ranges from 1/8 to 1/2 inch. FKM seal is standard and EPDM is optional. Flow rate ranges from Cv of 0.23 to 49.
Direct air and solenoid operated 2 and 3 port valves can be used with a wide variety of fluids. The manifolds are available in a common SUP style or individual SUP style (for vacuum use). The VXA31/32 series manifold is individually ported. Valves for both are easily replaced without changing existing piping.
Solenoid valve is designed for special applications like air, gas, steam, water and oil. The VXK includes a Y type strainer installed inside the body to remove foreign materials mixed in fluids before they enter the actuating part of the valve (armature), as well as preventing the flow of foreign materials to downstream equipment. The VXH is high pressure capable of a maximum operating pressure is 2.0 MPa.
Coolant solenoid valve provides the perfect solution for high speed machining and is available as solenoid or air operated. Features like a scraper, squeeze seal, grease channel and dry bearing construction, increases the valves service life.
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.
Color change solenoid valves are applicable for water/chemical base paint, in, cleaning solvent and air.
2-port solenoid valve was designed for special applications like air, gas, steam, water and oil. The VXK includes a Y type strainer installed inside the body to remove foreign materials mixed in fluids before they enter the actuating part of the valve (armature), as well as preventing the flow of foreign materials to downstream equipment. The VXH is high pressure capable of a maximum operating pressure is 2.0 MPa.
Fluid process pumps are designed specifically to meet industry demands, SMC's series diaphragm pumps are constructed to be used with using high purity chemicals. Our pumps are lightweight, compact, high flow rate solution to meet the most demanding needs.
Industrial filters series offers a variety of elements that can be selected according to the filtration conditions and are suitable for high flow rate filtration
