SMC Products for Oil & Natural Gas 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 Oil & Gas industry's need for robust performance while minimizing energy costs and downtime.
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.
AFF Main Line Filter
The legacy AFF series is an excellent first stage in an air purification scheme. This coarse (3 μm) filter removes foreign matter and droplets to protect downstream dryers and extend the life of more precise filters. Units are easily serviced, and dirty elements can be disposed of while handling only the filter bowl.
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.
AW-X2622 Stainless Steel Filter Regulator
All external parts material are made of 316 stainless steel. The ambient and fluid temperature range is –40 to 80°C. Unit is compliant with NACE International Standards.
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.
ISG General Purpose Pressure Switch
ISG is a mechanical vacuum switch for applications where an electronic switch is unsuitable, or when it is desirable to trigger an electrical device when the set point is reached. ISG offers excellent repeatability and adjustable hysteresis. The circuit can be wired normally open or closed, wiht either AC or DC voltage for a range of inductive or non-inductive loads. Choose bronze/brass or 316 stainless steel wetted parts to monitor vacuum for a range of gases and liquids. CE compliant options, with IP40 or IP44 enclosure rating..Model with indicator light also available.
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.
VFN NAMUR 3 Port Solenoid Valve
VFN212N is a 3 port solenoid valve compliant with NAMUR interface. It can be directly installed on valve actuators that comply with NAMUR.
VFN NAMUR 5 Port Solenoid Valve
This is the standard non-hygienic version of the VFN2000N.
IP8000 E/P positioner is more compact than the IP6000 with improved visibility of the pressure indicator. Other features include an improved enclosure protection IP65, interchangeable mounting, excellent shock and vibration performance, and a 1/2 split range available by simple span adjustment. The IP200 cylinder positioner provides accurate and stable positioning of air cylinders. The compact design allows easy installation and maintenance. A span adjuster and zero adjuster are provided for the adjustment of the feed back spring.
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.
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.
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.
Gas Process Equipment
AP Tech, also known as Advanced Pressure Technology, manufactures a wide assortment of gas delivery components. Founded in 1987, AP Tech has grown to be a global leader in pressure regulators and valves used for semiconductor wafer fabrication and other clean industries such as solar and flat panel displays. AP Tech also services many other industries delivering specialty and bulk gases for a wide variety of applications.
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.
