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.
Steam and Sensors courses are being run at Bürkert’s headquarters in Cirencester, UK. The Steam training course will run in March and November, while there are only a few places left on the Sensors course, which is being held in February. Other courses are available and can be tailored to suit the particular requirements of an individual customer.
The courses provide theory-based learning backed up with practical applications for a hands-on approach. Bürkert uses examples and case study materials throughout the courses to highlight typical applications, all delivered by its experienced staff.
In 2014, the company is offering existing clients and distributors the opportunity to have bespoke training courses conducted on their premises to ensure that design engineers, process engineers and maintenance engineers all have full access to training on site.
Key course information
- Bürkert aims to provide information on the real physics of batching, cleaning and sterilising, water producing and distributing, filling, heating, cooling, separating, fermenting, distilling or evaporating, where engineers can share experience in complete control loops for flow, conductivity, pH, temperature, pressure and level.
- The training courses are modular and are independent of each other so people can attend any or all of the courses.
- All courses are free to attend with lunch and refreshments included throughout the day.
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 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.
Teisseire, a fruit syrup manufacturer in France, has found that utilising the Bürkert 8681 control head has completely changed how process valves at the plant are controlled and actuated, replacing direct air connections to control cabinets with intelligent fieldbus-enabled devices that increase both the reliability and efficiency of the production line.
