Festo’s new PCRP a tough filter regulator for many harsh environments
Corrosive atmospheres, extreme temperatures, explosive zones, indoor or outdoor applications: 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 entirely of premium stainless steel to ensure high corrosion resistance. The UV-resistant PCRP functions reliably outdoors and at temperatures ranging from -60°C to +80°C. Its also built rugged for potentially explosive zones 1, 2, 21 and 22.
The PCRP's stainless steel 316L housing meets all material requirements to NACE MR0175, guaranteeing a high level of corrosive resistance even in hydrogen sulphide environments such as those in the petrochemical industry.
The PCRP combines filter and pressure regulator functions in a single space-saving design, with a flow rate up to 4,115 l/m and a grade of filtration 5 or 40 µm, depending on which ISO 8573 air quality compliance level is required. The unit's patented seal technology protects against back flow and ensures reliable exhausting without the need for special accessories.
Installation is simple and fast. The PCRP has two pressure gauge connections for mounting flexibility. It can be installed in-line or using the available simple mounting bracket. Once it's in place, there is just the pressure gauge (Festo's PAGN) to be screwed in. Pneumatic connections are either ¼" or 1/2" in G or NPT.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
