Bürkert Fluid Control Systems is now offering durable and low maintenance on/off and control valves for switching and controlling gases, liquids and steam in the process and food industries, suitable for media pressures up to 25 bar and temperatures up to 230°C.

Low maintenance on/off and control valves are essential in the food and process industry. They control the flow of gases, steam or liquids, for example in auxiliary processes such as cleaning-in-place (CIP), reverse osmosis or temperature control. Bürkert’s new range of electric motor and pneumatically operated on/off control valves is designed for these applications, with extended pressure and temperature ranges.

With their special sealing materials, the valves with stainless steel valve bodies work with media up to 25 bar gauge pressure and temperatures between -40°C–230°C. The rated service life at 200°C is more than one million switching cycles.

Sealing materials and lubricants suitable for foodstuffs, drinking water, fuel gases or oxygen allow the valves to be used with other media, including for cleaning and flushing purposes, for heat carriers or saturated steam at 20 bar and 215°C.
