Marstons is chilling with Burkert

Marstons is chilling with Burkert
For Marstons brewery in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, replacing control valves on the main chiller system would improve reliability. However, the process control components were initially looking expensive - that is until a call to Burkert revealed a much more cost-effective solution. Replacing ageing equipment or expanding a production line are suitable opportunities to take stock of new technologies and how they can improve productivity and reduce project costs.

Complete your process - even in the event of a power failure

Complete your process - even in the event of a power failure
Imagine that you are drilling a hole, but in the middle of it all the power goes out and the drill breaks off. Regardless of which process you have just started, whether you are turning, milling or bending or in whatever form you are working on a workpiece: in the event of a power failure, the work step should be completed quickly and the tool moved out of the workpiece. This is usually achieved with an external uninterruptible power supply - or with a clever automation solution.
