Oil, Gas, Power Plants & Bio-Fuel

SMC's pneumatic products are specifically designed for harsh environments. The Oil, Gas, Power Plant and Bio-Fuel Industries can be very harsh on pneumatic components.  SMC has designed many products and options that address the challenges in these industries.

Rugged SMC Actuators Are Well Suited For Fuel Industry

Light Weight Large Bore Cylinder (Series CS2)

Where light weight is critical in such cases as transport, the new CS2 Series offers all aluminum tube and end covers. This results in weight savings of up to 50% compared to steel construction cylinders and is available in bore sizes of 125mm, 140mm and 160mm. Oversized piston rod adds to the overall cylinder strength and specially designed rod seal prevents internal contamination. The CS2 also utilizes a unique end of stroke cushion seal to reduce end of stroke shock and start up problems.

Standard Pneumatic Cylinder (Series CQ2)

The CQ2 series offers an extremely lightweight aluminum construction. The compact size allows the CQ2 to fit in extremely tight spaces. The CQ2 series is available in 42 different standard options which makes the CQ2 one of the most versatile cylinders on the market. The CQ2 series is available with a large range of end of stroke sensors that are mounted directly to the cylinder. The CQ2 is available in bore sizes from 12mm to 200mm.

CQ2-Two

NFPA Standard Cylinder (Series NCA1)

The NCA1 series is our NFPA Interchangeable Medium Duty pneumatic cylinder. The NCA1 series features a lightweight design and end of stroke air cushion is standard. It is available in bore sizes from 1.5" to 8".

NCA1

Compact Guided Cylinder (Series MGP)

Characteristics defining the MGP are the dual guide rods and single bore in a compact body. Guide rods offer two primary advantages -- non-rotation and dramatic lateral load resistance. The large tooling plate is ideal for pushing or lifting larger objects, or attaching custom tooling in a stable, secure manner.

MGP D-M9

All Stainless Steel Cylinder (Series CG5/CJ5)

The CG5 and CJ5 series are all stainless steel exterior actuators. They include a rubber rod wiper to keep potential contaminants from penetrating inside the cylinder. This wiper helps increase life by up to 5 times when compared to a conventional cylinder. The smooth exterior surface reduces the potential number of particle trap areas.

The CJ5 is the small bore version and is available in 12mm and 16mm bore sizes. The CG5 is available in bore sizes from 20mm to 100mm.

CG5/CJ5


SMC Valves are the Heart of a Pneumatic System

SMC Fitting & Tubing are a Critical Part of a Pneumatic System

One-touch Fittings (Series KQ2)

With a broad base of pneumatic component suppliers, the importance of a solid design and an accurate production process is more critical than ever. SMC's fittings are designed to reduce your setup time with an easy grip and release feature.

KQ2

Fittings w/Unifit Threads (Series KQ2)

The KQ2 with Unifit threads utilizes a stainless steel gasket laminated with NBR on both sides. The gasket will seal on the port chamfer instead of the port threads. Therefore, the same Unifit fitting can be used for Rc, G, NPT and NPTF port threads.

KQ2 Uni

Stainless Steel One-touch Fitting (Series KQG2)

Series KQG2 is our all stainless steel one-touch fitting. These fittings are made from 316 stainless steel and are oil and grease free. The seal material used in these fitting is made from FKM so the fittings can withstand temperature ranges from 23 to 302°F. Available port connection thread types include M, R, Rc, UNF, NPT and G. These are also available in inch and metric tubing sizes.

KQG2 Series

Stainless Steel Insert Fitting (Series KFG2)

The KFG2 Series is an all 316 stainless steel insert fitting and uses no rubber parts in the construction. This allows for a high temperature range of -85°F to 500°F.

KFG2

Polyurethane Tubing (Series TU/TIUB)

Due to its many desirable properties, the SMC Polyurethane line is utilized across industries; helping medical device manufacturers produce life saving equipment through to assisting giant land movers excavate masses of material. SMC tubing has a high dimensional accuracy due to our continuous laser inspection of outside diameter and monitoring of wall thickness during production.

Air Prep is Vital to Keep Any Pneumatic System Working Properly

Water Separator Series (AMG)

The AMG Series of water removal filters can be a simple solution where water needs to be removed but true drying may not be an option. The resin element of the AMG efficiently collects water droplets of all sizes with no additional power required and allows the liquid to be drained. They can be quickly added to equipment as a point of use solution when water problems are not widespread throughout a plant.

AMG

Lubrication System (ALD)

The ALD uses differential pressure to generate a very fine mist of oil that will carry through over 70 meters of piping length and 5 meters in height. One ALD can provide airline lubrication to a whole machine center or line of equipment eliminating the need for using numerous drip style lubricators. The fine oil mist provides a more even and consistent supply of oil reducing the occurrences of flooding or drying out of cylinders and valves.
ALD

Electro-pneumatic Regulators (Series ITV)

Using an ITV allows a machine to control the pressure based on an electronic signal, making the machine more productive. Today's buyers want a better-performing and easier-to-use regulator with an output signal and LED display. The ITV has an advanced design and features that leave it unequalled by its competitors.

 

ITV1000

Precision Regulator (Series IR)

The IR is a leading air operated precision regulator providing sensitivity within 0.2% F.S. (full span). The IR offers a compact and light weight design. Constant fluid pressure is accomplished through the IR's ability to adapt to the cylinder's piston displacement. In addition, since there is a large effective area for supply and exhaust, pressure setting can be done quickly accomplishing constant fluid pressure.

IR

Micro Mist Separator (Series AMH)

Series AMH Micro Mist Separator provides the performance of a high quality 0.01 µm oil removal coalescing filter with a built in prefilter. The AMH eliminates the prefilter for multi filter installations reducing element replacement, saving space and a total pressure drop reduction.

AMH

Modular FRL Units (Series AC)

Series AC Modular FRL Units contain most of the basic necessities of clean and dry point of use air. These units have excellent flow characteristics and are easy to assemble.

The regulator (Series AR) has a built-in gage option to make it easy to set system pressure. The AR series is capable of a low setting sensitivity of within 0.2% of full scale. Reverse flow functionality and integral digital pressure switches are standard features.

The air filter (AF Series) is installed at the inlet to prevent moisture and dust contained in compressed air from entering the pneumatic control circuit. A 5μm (standard) has been employed for the air filter's nominal filtration rating. Filter elements are 2μm, 5μm, 10μm, 20μm, 40μm, 70μm or 100μm.

AC

Lockout Valves (Series VHS)

Safety is the main purpose for the VHS Series Lockout Valve. It is a manually operated valve that, when turned off, removes residual pressure in pneumatic lines. It can also help prevent accidents because it can be padlock secured. This prevents an inadvertent air supply to the main pneumatic components. The VHS series also adds versatility because it can be mounted to our modular style FRL units.

VHS

Lockout Slo-Start Valves (Series AVL)

The AVL is an O.S.H.A. compliant, lockable soft start valve. The AVL gradually increases supply pressure which helps eliminates rapid movements at system start up. It also rapidly exhausts the system air at shut down. I can also help prevent accidents because it can be padlock secured. This prevents an inadvertent air supply to the main pneumatic components. The AVL series also adds versatility because it can be mounted to our modular style FRL units.
