Specific Product Precautions
Be sure to read before handling.
Refer to front matters 38 and 39 for Safety Instructions and pages 844 to 846 for
Vacuum Equipment Precautions.
Selection
Handling of One-touch Fittings
1. Do not use in a line where a pressurized condition is maintained since the body may be damaged.
1. Tubing attachment/detachment for one-touch fittings
1) Installing of tubing
(1) Use tubing with no flaws on its periphery and cut it off at a
right angle. When cutting the tubing, use a tube cutter,
TK-1, 2 or 3. Do not use pinchers, nippers or scissors, etc.
If cutting is done with tools other than tube cutters, the
tubing may be cut diagonally or become flattened, etc.
This can make a secure installation impossible, and cause
problems such as the tubing pulling out after installation or
air leakage. Allow some extra length in the tubing.
(2) The outside diameter of the polyurethane tubing swells
when internal pressure is applied to it. Therefore, it may
not be possible that the tubing can be re-inserted into
the one-touch fitting. Confirm the tubing outside diameter, and when the accuracy of the outside diameter is
+0.15 or larger, re-insert the tubing into the one-touch
fitting without cutting it. When the tubing is re-inserted
into the one-touch fitting, confirm that the tubing goes
through the release button smoothly.
(3) Grasp the tubing and push it in slowly, inserting it securely all the way into the fitting.
(4) After inserting the tubing, pull on it lightly to confirm that
it will not come out. If it is not installed securely all the
way into the fitting, this can cause problems such as air
leakage or the tubing pulling out.
2) Removal of tubing
(1) Push in the release button sufficiently. When doing this,
push the collar evenly.
(2) Pull out the tubing while holding down the release button
so that it does not come out. If the release button is not
pressed down sufficiently, there will be increased bite on
the tubing and it will become more difficult to pull it out.
(3) When the removed tubing is to be used again, cut off
the portion which has been chewed before reusing it. If
the chewed portion of the tubing is used as it is, this can
cause trouble such as air leakage or difficulty in removing the tubing.
2. Do not install the SMC’s KQ one-touch fitting series with a
metal rod into the ZFC05/10 series fittings. The metal rod will
not be held and the fitting will shoot out.
Warning
Caution
Mounting
Warning
1. Connect tubing to the IN and OUT one-touch fittings in accordance with the precautions for one-touch fittings.
Caution
1. Connect the piping in accordance with the flow direction
marked on the case. Proper sealing of the element cannot be
guaranteed if connections are reversed.
Maintenance
Warning
1. When the element becomes clogged, stop operation and adjust the internal pressure of the filter to atmospheric pressure
before replacing the element.
Caution
1. As a rule, replace the element when the pressure drops by 20
kPa.
2. During disassembly and assembly, confirm that there are no
scratches or damage, etc, on the O-ring.
3. Before using, confirm there is no leakage after replacing elements.
Operating Environment
Warning
1. Do not use tubings in atmospheres of corrosive gases, chemicals, salt water, water steam, or where there is direct contact
with any of these.
2. Do not wipe the product with alcohol, acetone, etc. or use it in
an atmosphere and place where these elements are likely to
adhere to the equipment.
Other Tube Brands
Caution
1. When tubing of brands other than SMC’s are used, verify that
the tubing O.D. satisfies the following accuracy;
1) Nylon tubing
: Within ±0.1 mm
2) Soft nylon tubing
: Within ±0.1 mm
3) Polyurethane tubing: Within +0.15 mm, within –0.2 mm
Do not use tubing which does not meet these outside diameter
tolerances.
It may not be possible to connect them, or they may cause
other trouble, such as air leakage or the tube pulling out after
connection.
2. Tubing O.D: ø2
Other tube brands cannot be used. It may not be possible to
connect them, or they may cause other trouble, such as air
leakage or the tube pulling out after connection.

Caution
1. Tubing attachment/detachment for One-touch fittings
1) Installing of tubing
(1) Use tubing with no flaws on its periphery and cut it off at a
right angle. When cutting the tubing, use a tube cutter,
TK-1, 2 or 3. Do not use pinchers, nippers or scissors, etc.
If cutting is done with tools other than tube cutters, the tubing may be cut diagonally or become flattened, etc. This
can make a secure installation impossible, and cause problems such as the tubing pulling out after installation or air
leakage. Allow some extra length in the tubing.
(2) The outside diameter of the polyurethane tubing swells
when internal pressure is applied to it. Therefore, it may
not be possible that the tubing can be re-inserted into the
One-touch fitting. Confirm the tubing outside diameter,
and when the accuracy of the outside diameter is +0.15
or larger, re-insert the tubing into the One-touch fitting
without cutting it. When the tubing is re-inserted into the
One-touch fitting, confirm that the tubing goes through the
release button smoothly.
(3) Grasp the tubing and push it in slowly, inserting it securely all the way into the fitting.
(4) After inserting the tubing, pull on it lightly to confirm that it
will not come out. If it is not installed securely all the way
into the fitting, this can cause problems such as air leakage or the tubing pulling out.
2) Removal of tubing
(1) Push in the release button sufficiently. When doing this,
push the collar evenly.
(2) Pull out the tubing while holding down the release button
so that it does not come out. If the release button is not
pressed down sufficiently, there will be increased bite on
the tubing and it will become more difficult to pull it out.
(3) When the removed tubing is to be used again, cut off the
portion which has been chewed before reusing it. If the
chewed portion of the tubing is used as it is, this can
cause trouble such as air leakage or difficulty in removing
the tubing.
2. Do not install the SMC’ s KQ One-touch fitting series
with a metal rod into the ZFC5 series fittings. The
metal rod will not be held and the fitting will shoot
out.

Other Tube Brands
Caution
Warning
1. When tubing of brands other than SMC’ s are used,
verify that the tubing O.D. satisfies the following accuracy;
: Within ±0.1 mm
: Within ±0.1 mm
: Within +0.15 mm,
Within –0.2 mm
1) Nylon tubing
2) Soft nylon tubing
3) Polyurethane tubing
Do not use tubing which does not meet these outside diameter
tolerances. It may not be possible to connect them, or they
may cause other trouble, such as air leakage or the tube pulling out after connection.
2. Connecting products with metal rods
After connecting the products with metal rods (Series KC, etc.)
to the One-touch fittings, do not use tubes, resin plugs or reducers, etc. These may come off the fittings.
1. Type of fluids
Please consult with SMC when using the product in applications other than compressed air.
2. When there is a large amount of drainage.
Compressed air containing a large amount of drainage can
cause malfunction of pneumatic equipment. An air dryer or
water droplet separator should be installed upstream from
filters.
3. Drain flushing
If condensate in the drain bowl is not emptied on a regular basis, the condensate will overflow and allow it to enter the compressed air lines. This will cause a malfunction of pneumatic
equipment. If the drain bowl is difficult to check and remove,
installation of a drain bowl with an auto drain option is recommended.
Refer to “SMC Air Preparation System” for further details on compressed air quality.
