Developing an alternative to Coriolis

Developing an alternative to Coriolis
Back in the 1970s, Coriolis flowmeters first came into commercial use 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 now an alternative that offers all of the accuracy of Coriolis as well as addressing many of its substantial drawbacks.

A coat(ing) for all seasons

A coat(ing) for all seasons
In recent years, modern coatings technology has been advancing rapidly; used to prevent oxidation, corrosion and improve wear resistance as well as provide protection from high temperatures, manufacturers are keen to exploit new coatings to improve the durability of their products. However, not all coatings are the same and the quality of the final product relies on high quality equipment and expert application techniques.

Stock levels increase to support maintenance market

Stock levels increase to support maintenance market
The more companies that tighten maintenance budgets, the less are 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.

Process automation in the food and beverage industry

Process automation in the food and beverage industry
The advantages of improved automation have already been put to use by most large scale food processing plants 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.

Light-weight precision flow meter suits process skids

Light-weight precision flow meter suits process skids
Enabling its precision liquid flowmeter, FLOWave, developments by Bürkert are to be incorporated into process skids providing a lightweight, cost effective, solution for hygienic applications. The development of process skids is a competitive enterprise but there are several aspects of the design that cannot be compromised, especially if they are destined for pharmaceutical applications.

Going with the flow in pneumatic conveying systems

Going with the flow in pneumatic conveying systems
Pneumatic conveying brings a number of advantages, for many industries, not forgetting 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.

Catalogue lets you find the right control valve solution

Catalogue lets you find the right control valve solution
For those involved in designing, operating and maintaining the world of fluid control systems, there are many challenges. 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.

Delivering on the requirement for control panels

Delivering on the requirement for control panels
Requiring considerable experience and expertise, designing and building process control panels is not as straight forward as you may think, 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 and gas to less well recognised areas such as food and drink or rail.

Frozen over this January

Frozen over this January
A price freeze for January 2017 has been applied by Bürkert, throwing a spanner in the works for the normal trend of price increases this year. While many other manufacturers have already communicated price rises between 5% and 11%, Bürkert aims to maintain current price levels for its customers.

Fast delivery now offered on full-bore mag flowmeters

Fast delivery now offered on full-bore mag flowmeters
Cutting the traditional lead time of six to eight weeks for an electromagnetic flowmeter, Bürkert has got it down to just ten working days. 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.
