The AC series design review is part of SMC’s ongoing investment in R&D to refine and improve the performance and functionality of its products, as well as developing new innovations to drive enhanced handling and space savings and deliver competitive advantages for customers. In this regard, the AC series brings a double layer structure bowl guard for better visibility and extended working life, while also reducing time and space required for maintenance.
Space saving is achieved due to the compactness of the modular units and the integrated and selectable pressure gauges and switches. Moreover, the introduction of an in-bowl assembled element construction, together with a new bracket system that allows for initial tightening by hand, allows for easier control and quick in-hand maintenance and replacement of elements. Ideal for automotive, facility and machine manufacturing, these highly flexible F.R.L. units also feature a simple to use bowl lock button and interchangeable modular mounting.
• Better visibility and environmental resistance.
• Easy replacement of the element: the element and the bowl are in one piece. Replacement can be done in hand.
• Reduced required maintenance space.
• Regulator: set pressure 0,05 to 0,85 MPa, 0,02 to 0,2 MPa.
• Selection of pressure gauges: square embedded type pressure gauge, round type, digital pressure switch.
