SMC Pneumatics has launched the ARG series regulator with built-in pressure gauge onto the Australian market.
According to SMC, this is the only regulator available in Australia to incorporate the pressure gauge into the handle, drastically reducing the space required for mounting.
Another advantage of the unit is that it requires less labour time to fit than previous units which, because they required two holes to be cut rather than one, and therefore more labour time to fit.
Available in three sizes, the ARG series regulators are suitable for mounting in conjunction with other modular FRL products including filters and lubricators.
Other features of the product series include a reverse flow function which can be used in combination with a pressure relief valve; and a non-rotating gauge which remains vertical for ease of reading even when the mounting handle is rotated.
An operating pressure of 1MPa is standard across all models and a set pressure ranging from 0.05MPa to 0.85MPa is available depending on the model selected.
Weighing between 0.32kg and 0.58kg, the ARG regulators are a compact pressure-regulating solution, measuring as little as 110mm in height and 40mm width.
The ARG product series is an addition to SMC's space saving range which has been designed to address the growing need to reduce installation time and energy saving in Australian manufacturing facilities.
