    Rice-sorting-machineSimple but yet effective way to amplify suction or discharge flow rate

    Ever wished to increase suction or discharge flow rate without increasing supply air flow?

    You can make it possible by using SMC air amplifier ZH-X185.

    Air amplifier is a simple, light and cost effective tool that uses a small amount of compressed air to produce high velocity and high volume output air flow. ZH-X185 can multiply the flow rate up to 4 times with the same supply air flow. It is air driven and hence no electrical supply is required. What’s more, it is maintenance free as it has no moving parts.

    Make sure your compressed air is dry

    Service-lifeUsually, compressed air contains moisture in both liquid and vapor phases. If water is present in the compressed air system, the price to pay is in the form of maintenance costs, equipment breakdown, and the worst of all is production downtime.

    Prior to removing the moisture out from the compressed air, it is necessary to gauge the air dryness in order to apply the appropriate type of air purification system, especially for moisture sensitive processes such as spray painting, medical & pharmaceutical processes, food packaging etc.

    You definitely need help from the expert to make sure your compressed air is dry. Our team is able to determine the dryness of the compressed air using our specially developed dew point tester.

    Feel free to contact SMC Singapore, Malaysia and Philippines for compressed air dryness check at No Cost.

    Did You Know A Man Nearly Exploded When An Air Valve Lodged Into His Buttocks?

    Steven McCormack, a New Zealand Trucker, had a lucky escape from a freak accident which nearly made him explode. The unfortunate event saw Steven have compressed air pumped into his body, inflating him to twice his size!

    It occurred at a gas station where he was working. He tripped and fell on a broken air pressure valve. Within moments, 100 of lbs of compressed air was being pumped into his body.

    Miraculously, Steven made a full recovery. The air had to be released from his body. That is, by burping and passing wind.
