BURKERT UK is offering a service for designing, manufacturing, and commissioning packaged batch-control systems for various consumer markets. It said the program offers customers the advantages of integrating world-class fluid control products with third-party products (where required) in systems that are customized to each users’ requirements, fully optimized for maximum performance, and designed to meet specific sectors’ requirements for hygiene.
The batch control packages result from Burkert’s ability to combine process and laboratory automation, valve elements, sensors, flowmeters, water treatment systems, and networked communications into single-source customized systems that deliver higher process efficiency and also higher yields with reduced waste.
The scope of the service includes complete project responsibility from conception through design, manufacturing, assembly, and testing. It covers small and large production runs, extends to integration of third-party equipment, and offers the key benefit of simplifying equipment designs; making them more compact and easier to use.
Batch control packages can be housed in control enclosures of almost any material, including GRP and stainless steel, and integrate comprehensive levels of instrumentation: level, pH, conductivity, ORP, combined flow rate, pH, ORP, temperature and conductivity, as well as visual displays and controllers.
“What is increasingly evident today is that the complexity of modern processes cannot always be satisfied with standard batch control,” said Tom Carnell, manager of Burkert UK’s System Division.
The batch control packages are a further development in Burkert’s overall systems capability. It provides products ranging from ATEX certified control cabinets; to MicroFluidic multi-station dosing and mixing units for DNA synthesis; to systems based on its mxControl, multi-parameter controller that fully automate and optimize water treatment and purification processes.
