    SY-valve What are the differences between metal and rubber seals types of valve?

    Metal seal type


    • Have durability and long life.

    • Have a small amount of air leakage due to the air gap clearance between sliding parts.

    • Micro particles of foreign materials may tend to adhere. High filtration mist separator is required.

    • Fast response time.Suitable for continuous duty cycle.

    Rubber seal type


    • Low air leakage

    • Seal material may be affected by certain oils or the content of exhaust air.

    Did You Know Honey Is The Only Food That Doesn’t Spoil?

    3,300 years. That’s the approximate shelf life of honey that’s kept in a honeydoesnotspoil-300x225jar. Well, that’s what we think anyway after a discovery by archaeologist T.M Davies.

    Davies found a jar of honey in an Egyptian tomb which was over 3,300 years old. To his amazement, it was still in good condition and perfectly edible.

    For this long shelf life to remain however, honey must be stored in a jar with a screw tight lid to prevent moisture from entering. This is because the honey will absorb the moisture and begin to ferment.

     エア系統に湿気が含まれていると機器にダメージを与え、設備のチョコ停につながります。 とくに湿気に敏感な工程(塗装や医療機器、食品関連)では、エア清浄度が確保されているか、乾燥度合を確認することが必要です。

    SMCではエア乾燥度の無料診断を実施させていただいております。 特別に開発された湿度計を使って、スタッフが圧縮空気の乾燥度をチェックします。
