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.

ATEX Control Panel Design and Build Expertise

2017-02-01 14:17:29

Designing and building process control panels requires considerable experience and expertise, especially when they are destined for hazardous areas. These potentially explosive atmospheres, or zoned areas, are more common than you’d think, with applications spread across a number of industries from obvious ones like oil & gas to less well-recognised areas such as food & drink or rail.

Fluid Control Expert Maintains Price Freeze For 2017

2017-01-05 11:01:41

Bürkert has bucked the industry trend for price increases by implementing a price freeze for January 2017. While many other manufacturers have already communicated price rises between 5% and 11%, Bürkert aims to maintain current price levels for its customers.

10 Day Full-bore Mag Flowmeter Delivery

2016-12-16 08:16:21

The traditional lead time of 6-8 weeks for an electromagnetic flowmeter has been cut to just 10 working days by Bürkert. Although a relatively low volume product, ‘magmeters’, as they are commonly known, are used in many applications but replacement parts are often made to order which can delay projects or reduce productivity for a considerable time. Faster delivery should benefit end users and process equipment manufacturers alike.

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.
