Specific Product Precautions (Silencers)


Be sure to read before handling.

Design

Mounting

1. The exhaust port could become blocked by the


clogging of the exhaust cleaner.

1. If the silencer body (case) is made of plastic and is


tightened too much, the silencer may be damaged.

Warning

Caution

Therefore, make sure to provide a safe design so as not to


cause the whole system to malfunction.

Caution
1. The silencer is intended to reduce the noise of
exhaust air of the compressed air emitted from
pneumatic equipment.

Please follow the procedures below for mounting.


When the body (case) is made of resin
Hold the tip of the main body (the side without thread) and
screw it in.
At the point where the thread begins to feel tight, use a
wrench on the hexagonal flats to tighten an additional 1/4 turn.
Tighten securely by hand for AN103-01.

Noises other than exhaust air (noise generated inside piping,


noise generated by vibration of equipment, noise of switching
valves, etc.) cannot be reduced.
Take appropriate measures to find the cause of noises other
than those generated by exhaust air.

For BC elements
Hold the tip of the main body (the side without thread) with
your fingers and screw it in tightly.
Do not hold the sintered metal part with a wrench, etc. to
tighten.

2. The inlet pressure obtained in the flow


characteristic graph of silencer indicates the
pressure (P1) prior to silencer. (Refer to the
diagram below.)

When the main body is made of metal (Except BC


elements) [Series 25]
Within the recommended tightening torque shown in the chart
below, use a wrench on the hexagonal flats and tighten.
Tightening by using a pipe wrench or pliers may cause
damage to the silencer. This method is not recommended.

3. If the compressed air supply is contaminated with


fluids such as oil and oil mist, such fluids will be
dispersed to the environment.
In such a case, an exhaust cleaner is recommended to
recover fluids and reduce noise.

4. The silencing effect could vary depending on the


pneumatic circuit or the pressure that is used.

Selection

Caution
1. Select a model which has a bigger effective area
than that of the solenoid valve (including
compound effective area).
2. Be certain to use at or below the level of
recommended flow.

2. Make sure not to apply a lateral load to the body


during or after the installation.
3. When the main body of the silencer is loosened by
vibration, etc. of equipment on which a silencer is
assembled, apply glue to threads to prevent
loosening and reattach.
4. Mounting metal rod accessories
After mounting the products with metal rods to the one-touch
fitting, please do not replace the tube, resin plug, reducer, etc.
It may cause loosening or detachment.

Maintenance

Caution
1. Never disassemble the silencer.

AMP

The silencing material is not replaceable.

2. If the exhaust speed drops and the system


performance decreases due to clogging, replace
with a new silencer.
Make sure to verify the operating conditions of the actuator at
least once a day.

Specific Product Precautions


Be sure to read before handling.

Design

Maintenance

Warning

Caution

1. The exhaust port can clog due to a clogged or


frozen silencer.
Consider design safety to avoid malfunctions of the entire system. Also, under conditions conducive to freezing, use a freezereduction model. (VCHNF series)

Caution
1. A silencer reduces compressed air exhaust
noise from the pneumatic equipment.
Noise other than that generated by the exhaust assembly (noise
generated inside piping, due to equipment vibration, solenoid
valve switching, etc.) cannot be reduced. As for noise generated
by sources other than the exhaust, locate the cause and take
measures.

2. Silencer inlet side pressure shows the solenoid valve supply pressure (P1). (See below.)

Valve

P1

1. When exhaust speed begins to slow from


clogging and system functionality begins to
degrade, replace with a new silencer or
sound-absorbant material.
Also, be sure to confirm the actuator's operation status once per
day.

How to Replace the Sound Absorbing Material

Caution
1. When replacing the sound absorbing material, please follow the instructions below.
Hexagon bolt
Tighten the screw with
a torque of 20 to 25
Nm after applying an
anti-loosening agent.
Also, the antiloosening agent is
recycleable.
