SMC Pneumatics Dust-Resistant Cylinders

Certain contaminants like ceramic powder, paper particles, or metallic powder can severely shorten a cylinder’s operating life, even when using a heavy-duty rod scraper. SMC Pneumatics’ XC92 dust-resistant option consists of floating lube-retainers on the piston rod, preventing particles of 30 microns or less from entering the cylinder, thereby extending the cylinder’s life.

  • Improves cylinder life by a factor of 4 compared to standard SMC cylinders in dusty environments.
  • Available for a range of standard cylinders including round type (CM2), two compact cylinder models (CQS and CQ2) and a compact guide type (MGP).
