French term or phrase: 1 ALIMENTATION MATIERES PR 3 E

1 AUTOLAVEUSE H500B PR LE SITE

PR = pour / matières premières

Explanation:
In your first two instances, I feel pretty sure it simply means 'pour' > 'for'. However, your third instance is more tricky; it might still mean 'pour' (matières pour 3 E) — but we might just have to consider it could be referring to 'matières premières'; though I've only really encountered that abbreviated to '1ere'

Just some ideas to start you off, at any rate!
