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.
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.
