Festo pre-assembled MS series ensures clean compressed air in food zones.
Festo introduced its MS series of filtration products that lower the risk of particle contamination when compressed air comes into direct contact with food or packaging in the food zone. The three models in the series – MS4, MS6, and MS9 – conform to FDA and US Food Safety Modernization Act guidelines as well as Safe Quality Food Institute Codes Edition 9 · 3-A standard 604-05 · British Compressed Air Society Guideline 102 · ISO2200:2005. MS series filtration systems are rated for air flow ranging from the MS4 at 360 l/min to MS9 at 7,800 l/min. Once the pressure point is set, a lockable filter regulator prevents tampering. Visual-cue red/green gauges indicate the unit has the correct/incorrect pressure range and whether filters require replacement. The MS series is compatible with a wide range of fittings from NPT 2 all the way down to G 1/8.
