Precision temperature control for manufacturing

Precision temperature control for manufacturing
It can be a challenge to maintain efficiency in manufacturing processes that rely on rapid temperature change, they are energy intensive and will often form a natural bottle-neck in an overall process. Implementing a new control strategy that is both more accurate and responsive can therefore bring improvements to both productivity and process efficiency.

Minimising waste in hygienic control valve applications

Minimising waste in hygienic control valve applications
  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.

Keeping control valves clean, inside and out

Keeping control valves clean, inside and out
Modern hygienic fluid control applications demand very high standards in terms of cleanliness, not only for the components directly in contact with the process medium, but also for the external surfaces. Designing and installing complete fluid control systems that meet these stringent criteria requires expert design capabilities and innovative manufacturing facilities, as well as a considerable understanding of the applications.

Level sensing technologies

Level sensing technologies
One of the most common functions for process control is level sensing, but it also uses a wide range of technologies to achieve the same goal. Therefore it is important to select the correct design for each application to ensure a reliable and accurate system. Bürkert UK’s, Midlands Area Technical Sales and Sensors worker, Greg Wainhouse, explained some of the various designs which are available.

Building selective catalytic reduction systems

Building selective catalytic reduction systems
Increasing pressure to reduce harmful emissions into the atmosphere has led to a number of design changes for internal combustion engines as well as addition investment by coal fired power stations and waste incinerators. As attention turns to the oxides of nitrogen, which are collectively known as NOx gases, commercial diesel engine manufacturers, amongst others, are looking for packaged solutions that will deliver reliable emissions control.

Emerging food preservation technology requires precision control

Emerging food preservation technology requires precision control
Our ability to preserve food has a long history - with more recent developments being directed by the desire to maintain nutritional value in addition to the original taste and texture of the food. Research in this field within the UK is helping to develop new techniques that can be applied on an industrial scale and one company at the forefront of this field is Campden BRI.

Precision gas control for experimental combustion rig

Precision gas control for experimental combustion rig
Designing and manufacturing one-off pieces of equipment requires considerable engineering skill, especially when that equipment is required to control combustible gases and deliver precisely repeatable results. So when Saflame was approached to design an experimental combustion rig which required precise, independent control of three gases, it turned to Bürkert Fluid Control Systems to provide the solution.

Meeting the demand for more complex process control systems

Meeting the demand for more complex process control systems
Process control systems in almost every industry are becoming more complex; they are subject to greater scrutiny due in part to the demand for improved efficiency, regulatory compliance and higher levels of automation and plant integration. The need for bespoke or low volume system design is also growing as a result. Bürkert has addressed this challenge by developing the Systemhaus approach, where regional technology solutions centres sit between the sales offices and larger-scale manufacturing facilities, solving problems and building innovative systems on-demand.
