Pneumatic control device manufacturer SMC says that its new JSXF Series SmartVent pulse valve delivers higher impact force and reduced air consumption, making it ideal for use in mining applications.

This valve features a springless robust elastomer diaphragm and optimised internal design.

The company asserts that mines demand energy-efficient dust control systems that can effectively collect dust and other impurities from air or gas, as they are viewed as the key to the prevention of health and safety risks.

It adds that the JSXF Series solenoid-type valve is the latest innovation with the design improving its service life to ten-million or more cycles, while producing faster response times and energy savings.

“Product development and innovation is at the core of SMC’s strategy and sets us apart as a global market leader. We work closely with customers who understand their industry challenges and their needs, so we can offer them top-notch products and solutions,” says SMC global accounts manager Angus Christian.

JSXF has a built-in control board, making it more compact and easily installed. The company says that a single base valve can control up to 31 valves, for efficient collective control of response times and, when used in combination with a differential pressure sensor, filter clogger is easily detected.

“According to the Reserve Bank of Australia, mining accounts for over 14% of Australia’s gross domestic product. Since its inception, SMC has serviced this essential sector, and we plan to continue evolving with its needs,” concludes Christian.
