Integrated automation features in a simple and clear system architecture combined with optimal characteristics for use in hygienic production environment: B├╝rkert presents the "element" series. The valves, controllers and sensors of the series are completely made of stainless steel 316L and are well suited for use in hygienic processes, since they can be easily cleaned with all common procedures and are corrosion resistant.
The element-process control valves are especially compact, robust and easy. They allow an unprecedented compact system design is especially for designs with welded connection. Here is the complete valve element program understands optimized for food use by the conformity of all components of the EC Regulation 1935 / 2004 / EC. For optimum hygiene slightly inclined outer surfaces and the ultra-fine processing. The hygienic seal design with double seal guarantees depending on the type of valve protection classes IP65 and 67 (partially IP69K) and ensures the continued successful operation.
Inside the member control valves highly polished shafts ensure minimum friction of automatically self-adjusting gland packings. Also integrates an inductive displacement transducer that operates without contact, not blocked and the spindle stroke is recorded particularly precise. The position sensor inside the unit is perfectly protected and makes the external mounting of positioners superfluous.
The Element Series includes straight type, and diaphragm seat valves with welding, flange, clamp or socket connection in sizes up to DN100. Matching control heads, positioners and process controllers can be selected modular and interchangeable with all types of pneumatically actuated process valves. The intelligent control heads, hygienic design accept as distributed automation component, the complete pneumatic Ansteuerungs-, feedback and diagnostic function up to the bus communication and are constructed using the same criteria as the valves.
