I amd designing a keg washer I will be using some assured automation angle valve pneumatic. SO I will be using the bcs462 to control the diferent valves thru a festo manifold. will the output of the bcs manage pulse cycles or should I use a ssr to drive the manifiold

Yes, the BCS can do pulsing, but what is the frequency of pulsing? If it is just on/off every few seconds or is it a PWM (pulse width modulation) you're talking about? If it is PWM, then you have to use the BCS to drive an SSR. If it is just turning on/off to cycle a process, then the BCS can drive a mechanical relay.

just pulsing to just create water shocks on the keg vs steady flow with washing acid
