‘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.

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.
Bürkert Fluid Control Systems has announced its aim to offer more on-site training courses to those involved in the process control industry. To this end, it is increasing the number of trainers it has available to carry out training at customer premises.
Bürkert Fluid Control Systems has introduced the 3003 and 3004 series of electrically actuated quarter-turn valves designed to offer fast and reliable control to support many applications from 20Nm to 100Nm.
One of the most critical aspects of valve design is the chemical resistance properties of the valve housing and the gasket materials in relation to the substances that it is expected to control. To help designers and maintenance engineers select the most suitable products, Bürkert has released a comprehensive chemical resistance chart that matches products, materials and conditions with chemical type and reactivity.
