How It’s Work : SMC Auto Drain Functional and Operation

This time I would like to share about Auto Drain operational to discharge automatically water inside compressed air receiver tank.This equipment is very important to remove 80% of water contain in compressed air and to ensure our compressed air is dry and clean.Why we need the clean and dry compressed air in our system?The main reason is to ensure our pneumatic equipment or instrument fully operated and pro long a life span.If water contaminated our compress air system,piping or equipment that operated with compress air will rusty,jammed and clog with dirt.It’s can cause a breakdown and it loss to our operation cost.

Below is example of SMC Auto Drain Operational to remove out water inside receiver tank.We can see a lot of water came out to drainage when auto drain operated.You can image how much water can go through inside to air supply system and can damage our equipment and pipeline.Feel free to watch the video and please share,like or comment if you think it’s benefit.

How to protect from surge voltage?

Each year many electrical equipment’s defected due to surge voltage from natural disaster like lightning or supply error.It very costly to replaced it back to normal system.

Theoretically single lightning strike produce 20,000 to 40,000 Ampere and about 200 Mega volts (MV) .It enough to generated a temperature about 4 times hotter than the surface of the sun.

In the market,some of surge protectors are designed to cut out  if a surge value exceeds 60,000 ampere to protected the sensitive equipment from defected. read more

Distribution substations

For electrical power distribution,substation is the one important component to serve,distributing and regulated an electricity to building,factory or private living area.

Normally substations have the several required equipment such as power transformers and the voltage-regulating device for converting the high incoming sub-transmission voltages to low voltage primary system and ensure it in specified voltage tolerances.

The others basic equipment in substations includes circuit breakers, switches, bus bars, shunt coil reactor, power factor correction capacitors, lightning arresters, read more

Definition of Surge voltage

What is the surge voltage?For our easy understanding,electrical surge is a sudden high pick out of voltage value in the system.It can happened in electrical power distribution and communications lines entering homes,factory, offices, and other facilities.

The surges voltage happened due to natural factor such as lighting or human error.It can effected and can cause serious damage for any unprotected electronic device that connected to the power or communication lines.

Electronic products that are especially vulnerable to surges include microprocessors or micro controllers, such as computers, TV, server system, cordless telephones, and inverter. read more

Emergency and standby power system

When design the electrical installation and electric power for building or factory,the main objective that we need to focus is about emergency and standby electric power systems.The main reason  is the about safety of building occupants following a power outage.

When danger or disaster happened at building or factory such as fire,heavy smoke, chemical hazard,tsunami or earthquake,the emergency procedure backup power system is important and it required for evacuation from the building.

At the very least, emergency and standby power systems should provide lighting to assure the safe evacuation and  panic-free exit of people from the building. read more

Battery systems

Batteries is one of the common thing in our daily application.We used it for domestic and industrial application.It can stored the electricity energy to made our equipment function properly.

We need to choose the suitable type of battery system depend on our application and design to ensure it can operated with maximum capacity.It have in several type such as dry type and wet types with different ampere rating from low to high current capacity.

In the market now we can selected several type of system for battery can suit for our needed and design.Below i listed basic categories for battery system read more

Energy solar

This energy come from sun.It send a enormous amount of energy.It totally free and clean source.Now the solar energy become the alternative green house technology for electricity generation.It call the green technology.It not pollute the environment and not accumulate any hazardous waste.

Day by day,cost to produce electrical energy increase and its the main factor why more people a looking to the solar power as an affordable supplement to traditional energy sources.

If we can improve solar technology with low cost and more efficiency maybe we will not facing any more for energy crisis.So anybody can use this technology to generate the power supply form the free source.
