How To Maintain Optimum Level And Flow Control For Food & Beverage Processes

2017-07-12 05:27:33

Process control equipment used in the food and beverage industry has to operate effectively with a wide variety of fluids, granules and powders. Add to this different viscosities and the requirement for a hygienic environment, plus, the ability to keep process lines clean and sterile, then the scale of challenge in managing effective flow and level control in a food processing line becomes apparent.

Minimising Waste In Hygienic Control Valve Applications

2017-07-03 11:53:04

Manufacturing processes that operate under hygienic conditions are arguably under more pressures to increase efficiency and reduce waste due to high relative operating costs. However, this specialist area is required to prioritise cleanliness and precision ahead of other considerations, which can lead to some cost saving opportunities being missed.

Solenoid Valves Receive Seal Of Approval

2017-05-24 05:11:39

Industry design validation and approvals can be a lengthy, but essential, process that ensures components are suitable for operation in specialist applications. Bürkert Fluid Control Systems has achieved over 20 approvals for its solenoid valve range - that together provide a guarantee to end users that every product has met or surpassed the required standard.

Prevent Oxidation, Corrosion & Improve Wear Resistance Using Modern Coatings Technology

Achieving the best result with coating technologies from Ion Implanting, PVD and CVD, to Thermal spray and Welding

Fluid Control Stock Levels Support Maintenance Market

2017-05-01 10:08:47

As more companies tighten maintenance budgets they are less willing to hold stocks of spare parts

Instead they are expecting original equipment manufacturers and their service agents to hold stock for them. Bürkert Fluid Control Systems is one manufacturer that supports this model, with a complete parts and specifications catalogue online and distributors holding increased stock levels.

Do Food & Beverage SMEs Need to Push for more Process Automation?

2017-04-12 06:42:07

Most large scale food processing plants have already grasped the advantages of improved automation and used them to minimise production costs and boost productivity. However, some medium and smaller scale businesses, although appreciative of the benefits, remain reticent about the process of implementation and how the latest technology will combine with an existing installation.

New Light-weight Precision Flowmeter Suits Process Skids

2017-03-29 08:31:46

Recent developments by Bürkert have enabled its ground-breaking precision liquid flowmeter, FLOWave, to be incorporated into process skids providing a lightweight, cost effective, solution for hygienic applications.

Alternative To Coriolis Flowmeters When Fluid Density Is Not Required

2017-03-08 10:05:16

Coriolis flowmeters first came into commercial use in the 1970s and ever since they have been developed and refined to meet a growing number of applications across a wide range of industries. However, where fluid density is not required, there is an alternative that offers all of the accuracy of Coriolis as well as addressing many of its substantial drawbacks.

How To Improve Pneumatic Conveying System Flow Control

2017-02-23 16:13:54

For many industries, pneumatic conveying brings a number of advantages, not least the lack of moving parts and system flexibility. However, it is essential that such systems are properly controlled in order to maintain efficiency and the quality of the product in transit. Delivering effective process control systems requires an understanding of both the technology and the industry itself.

Choosing The Right Control Valve Solution

2017-02-09 04:53:48

The world of fluid control systems presents a whole host of challenges for those involved in designing, operating and maintaining them. Not least of these is finding the most suitable valve for an application; the choice seems almost endless but help is at hand for those who prefer to select all of their components from one source. With a comprehensive catalogue and easy access to expert technical advice, Bürkert can provide the complete solution.

MFC / MFM, LFC/LFM and proportional valves

MFC / MFM, LFC/LFM and proportional valves

Massflow under control

Massflow gas measurement is independant of temperature and pressure, thus controlling a process gas can be stable and reproduceable. Massflow controllers contain a PID-controller and can be driven through norm signal or field bus. Massflow meters are without actuators and are only for measuring massflow.

Control valve strokes proportionally

Positioning valves can be combined with pneumatic, motorized, piezoelectric or solenoid actuators. The main differences between the various actuation principles are type of media separation, dynamic and force properties. Solenoid-operated positioning valves are known in practice as proportional valves and cover the nominal diameter range below 25 mm. Open and closed control loops can be developed using proportional valves. Open control loops control the valve without feedback signal, while closed control loops control the difference between the set-point and actual values. Switching solenoid valves, which are normally closed, form the basis for Bürkert proportional valves. Direct-acting proportional valves receive their feed below their seat, while servo-assisted models receive their feed above their seat.



The range of products varies from singular or aligned solenoid valves to field bus controlled decentralised I/O-Systems with electrical and pneumatic I/O\'s.
