Safety-related Pneumatic Valve Shut-off
More safety in food and beverage processes
Minimum requirements for safety standards for machines and equipment are regulated in the Machinery Directive EN ISO 13849. Bürkert adjusted itself to the new conditions.
The diverse areas of application for the valve island type 8640 and the automation system type 8644 in the food and beverage industry are expanded by the pneumatic valves 6524 and 6525 for safety-related shut-off. These valves allow safe shut-down of your processes up to performance level C according to Machinery Directive. In addition, performance level D can be achieved by integrating the redundancy block.
