‘Improving process efficiency in plastic processing — new valve technology for temperature control units’
In injection moulding, meeting the increasing requirements concerning surface quality and dimensional accuracy poses a real challenge. Processors demand tension-free and non-deforming workpieces that provide excellent moulding accuracy and seamless, perfect surfaces in high polish quality. Over the years, innovative mould technologies and valve designs have enabled manufacturers to opt for efficient variothermal temperature control in serial production, introducing the technology in the automotive and consumer goods industries.

Chemical distribution company Brenntag has turned to Bürkert Fluid Control Systems to replace its effluent monitoring and batch control systems. The result is a more efficient plant that complies with local water authority requirements as well as a recommendation to repeat the design at another facility.
Bürkert is offering the Robolux valve, which is designed to be suitable for use in a hygienic processing environment. The valve is easy to clean using CIP, contains a low internal volume and a minimum number of connections, and offers super-precise flow control abilities.
As process control systems continue to advance and the use of complicated networked solutions develops, is there still a requirement for the simple analogue signal? Chris Hoey of Bürkert provides an insight into selecting the correct control signals to produce the optimum process control system.
According to Bürkert, its range of control valves and pressure, temperature and flow sensors can be developed into an efficient and accurate steam process control system that, when used by the pet food industry during the cooking process, can help maximise efficiency and reduce costs.
Bürkert, a manufacturer of control and measuring systems for fluids and gases, uses an international network of Systemhaus facilities to take requests from customers and develop them into finished products locally. According to the company, its development engineers can pool resources and knowledge in order to solve problems at the Systemhaus design and development hubs.
