Festo PCRP filter regulator for harsh environments

June 11, 2019

Festo introduced a new PCRP filter regulator for harsh process industry environments, including oil and gas. The PCRP filter regulator series withstands corrosive atmospheres, has a wide temperature range, features resistance to explosive atmosphere ratings, and delivers reliable pressure control at high flow rates. PCRP regulators also feature an all-in-one regulator and filter space-saving design.

The PCRP 316L stainless steel housing meets the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE) MR0175 standard for corrosion resistance, including hydrogen-sulfide environments. These filter regulators deliver dependable pressure control at flow rates from 1,920- to 4,115-l/min. Operating range is from 1- to 20-bar. Two pressure regulation ranges are available, 0.5- to 7-bar and 0.5- to 12-bar. The series temperature range stretches from -76° to +176°F (-60° to +80°C). These units are suitable for outdoor environments as well.

The PRCP is rated for use in explosive atmosphere, zones 1, 2, 21, and 22. Patented seal technology protects against back flow and ensures reliable exhausting with no special components required. The PCRP series is available in sizes ¼" and ½" with G or NPT threads.
