Festo PCRP Filter Regulator
By Mario Cywinski
Festo’s PCRP filter regulator delivers high flow rates and reliable compressed air pressure control in a range of harsh environments. Its housing and interior are made of stainless steel. The UV-resistant PCRP functions outdoors and at temperatures ranging from -60°C to +80°C. Its also built for potentially explosive zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.
The PCRP’s stainless steel 316L housing meets all material requirements to NACE MR0175. PCRP combines filter and pressure regulator functions in a single design, with a flow rate up to 4,115 l/m and a grade of filtration five or 40 µm, depending on which ISO 8573 air quality compliance level is required. Its patented seal technology protects against back flow and ensures reliable exhausting.
The PCRP has two pressure gauge connections. It can be installed in-line or using the available mounting bracket. Once it’s in place, there is just the pressure gauge to be screwed in. Pneumatic connections are either ¼” or ½” in G or NPT.
