A fluid regulator for drinking water and other liquids
Made of the lead-free brass material Ecobrass/Cuphin® ideal for critical application areas such as drinking water, food industry, medical industry, etc. Conforms to the DIN 50930-6/FDA/EU drinking water directives and other regulations.
The use of lead-free materials is growing in importance – in particular as an alternative material for drinking water applications, where health standards are high. As an alternative material to conventional brass, Protect-Air offers a fluid regulator made of a lead-free brass material – Ecobrass® (trade name CUPHIN).*
Drinking water is considered the most vital element for life next to air/oxygen. Since there is no alternative to this finite resource, protecting and securing the standard and quality of drinking water is a top priority for engineers, planners and technicians as well as system operators.
The use of lead-free materials is an increasing priority – in particular as an alternative material in the sanitation, food and medical sectors with their rigorous health standards. The EU drinking water directive plays an important role here. Its 2013 amendment will lower the lead concentration limit from the current level of 25 microgram per litre of drinking water to 10 microgram.
Free of toxic additives, the Ecobrass/Cuphin® materials (* see below) conform to the requirements specified in DIN 50930-6. This makes them particularly suitable for critical applications. The fluid regulators made of Ecobrass® are minimally susceptible to tension-crack corrosion and are de-zincification resistant, which makes an additional surface treatment unnecessary. This is environmentally friendly, saves cycle times, additional procedures and thereby costs. These are all good reasons to choose Protect-Air Ecobrass® fluid regulators that meet health and safety requirements and in areas that are constantly subject to corrosion risks.

The EcoReg fluid regulator is an independent diaphragm pressure regulator that can be installed in all fluid systems. The pressure regulator ensures a constant and precise output pressure independent from the input pressure. The pressure value has been factory preset and cannot be changed. This ensures that no one can manipulate the specified pressure value.
It is generally known that the pressure of fluid lines usually is too high, fluctuates or varies according to building height. In such cases, the Inline EcoReg fluid regulator protects all downstream installations, devices and components, because only the proper pressure is permitted. This is particularly important for all machines and plants dosing fluids because costly stops in production can be avoided.
If the EcoReg fluid regulator is also combined with a sprinkler nozzle, optimal conditions are created for cooling/cleaning applications with sprayed water or sprayed mists.
Materials for drinking water, etc., must meet increasingly rigorous mechanical and chemical corrosion requirements, in particular regarding hygiene safety. Free of toxic additives, the material Ecobrass/Cuphin® complies with the conditions specified in DIN 50930-6. Thanks to the selected combination of the alloying elements copper, zinc and silicon, Ecobrass/Cuphin® does not require the addition of lead. The material also promises high stability, even when expanded, permitting cold and hot forming; for instance, for processing with hot forging. As a result, Ecobrass/Cuphin® should be better to process than conventional brass materials that contain lead. The high stability and the very good resistance to corrosion of the material additionally offer ideal conditions for tight, wear-resistant connections in sanitation installations that are also subject to strong mechanical forces. The components made of Ecobrass/Cuphin® are minimally susceptible to tension-crack corrosion and are de-zincification-resistant, which makes an additional surface treatment unnecessary.
