SMC, the worlds leading provider of pneumatics, is cleaning up the market with the launch of its new clean exhaust filter. The SFE Series is both a filter and silencer and has been designed so that it can exhaust air directly within a clean room. This innovation removes the standard requirement to exhaust air outside the clean room and the associated piping needs, delivering both cost and space saving benefits. The SFE delivers high precision filtration with 99.99% efficiency rating and the silencer function reduces noise by 30dB or more. With three mounting variations male thread, plug-in and one-touch fitting types the one-touch fitting option is the solution where space is of a premium. Highly flexible across a number of applications, the SFE has wide ranging flow capacity from as little as 3 L/min up to 200 L/min (ANR) and includes a bracket to increase mounting flexibility. Recognised as a global technology leader, SMC has a diverse customer base covering all automation industries.
