Numatics’ 652 FRLs Ideal for Broad Range of Air Preparation Applications

ASCO Numatics introduces its 652 Series filter, regulator, and lubricator (FRL) line of air preparation products. The 652 Series features high flow characteristics and the widest high- and low-temperature ratings of any FRL – making it ideal for a broad range of applications.

Numatics 652 Series filter

These modular FRL products have robust construction and are easy to assemble, mount, and position. In addition, their new manifold endplate flanges allow the maintenance technician to pull the manifold assembly out of service without disconnecting the piping. The product line is available in three port sizes ranging from 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch (NPTF, G, or R threads).

The 652 Series incorporates front-facing easy-to-read, low-profile gauges. It is the only product of its type to also offer these gauges on its shut-off isolation valves and slow-start/quick-exhaust valves. Optional integral pressure range indicators allow the user to easily set the red/green color indicators to the desired pressure range. The 652 Series not only meets the need for a small footprint, but also results in clean lines and robust, modern-looking equipment.

An optional pressure regulator with reverse flow check permits the design engineer to place the regulator between the valve and cylinder. This allows air to be exhausted back through the regulator without causing damage or reduced life. Additionally, an optional 3-micron pleated pre-filter has been added to the line’s coalescing filters and coalescing filter/regulator combination units. This filter eliminates the need for a separate particulate filter unit, reducing cost, size, and weight. For more information, contact Pat Burns Jr. at

Numatics’ new air preparation products are the perfect fit for applications in the automotive and tire, packaging, food and beverage, and process industries requiring high flow, wide temperature characteristics, highly reliable operation, and easy installation and service.
