Festo, a manufacturer of pneumatic and electrical control systems and drive technology for factories and process automation, has launched its MS-Basic family of pneumatic service units in polymer housings that cover most application needs.

According to its developers, the MS-Basic air preparation components perform the most important technical tasks necessary for proper compressed air preparation. The line-up consists of pressure regulators, filter regulators, electric on-off and soft-start valves and manual on-off valves with filter-regulator combinations.

MS-Basic components are compatible with Festo’s MS line of premium service units. Machine builders and engineers can reportedly combine MS-Basic pressure regulators, filter regulators, on-off and soft-start valves with MS series safety valves, lubricators, distributors, filters and dryers to assemble the ideal mix of low-cost basic functions with high-end functionality.

Further, the MS-Basic pressure regulators and filter regulators are powerful, yet lightweight and have a high flow rate of up to 6,000 liters per minute.
