The German company Burkert is a reliable manufacturer of valves, sensors and flow control systems.
What is Burkert today?
Christian Burkert founded the company in 1946. He began his operations by opening an engineering electrical shop at Ingelfingen (Germany). At the present time, the concern is one of the market leaders in the development and production of a flow control systems.
In addition to the main production, Burkert Corporation is also performing:
- Staff training
- Post-sales services
Christian Bürkert GmbH & Co produces valves and systems for controlling the regulation of liquids and gases. The company’s devices operate in more than 300 different industrial sectors.
More than 2800 specialists carry out production and maintenance. Burkert has offices throughout Germany (Ingelfingen, Dresden, Berlin, Dortmund). However, the main part of the Bürkert GmbH products 70.2% is exported to Australia, USA, UK, Brazil, India and Indonesia.
The corporation is represented in 36 countries and has 35 independent subsidiaries. It also owns 5 dedicated «Systemhouses» and research laboratories in Europe, USA, and China. Burkert distributors supply the company`s products all around the World.
The manufacturer is constantly developing and modernizing its product, due to the large production and research capacities.
Burkert has already released more than 30,000 of its products. Devices manufactured by the German company are quite popular for using in water treatment systems, gas-processing industries, and microfluidic management equipment.
Burkert produces the following product categories:
- Solenoid valves
- Process and Control Valves
- Pneumatics and Process interfaces
- Sensors, Controllers and transmitters
- Liquid and Mass Flow Controllers
- Solenoid Control Valves
Burkert solenoid valves include a wide range of devices for various applications. Category combines direct-acting and servo-assisted valves for both general Purpose (2/2, 3/2-way) and special (Hazardous location, high pressure, and media separated). Such equipment perform operations of mixing, dozing, shut off, and flow distribution. It works with both fluids and gases.
Burkert Process and Control valves is a category that combines various types of units for monitoring and participating in the flow direction management (shut-off, process, control, and process automation). Set and forget - this phrase is a slogan for this category of products, emphasizing its continuous reliability. Such group of valves includes devices with pneumatic and electromotive actuators.
Burkert sensors, controllers and transmitters is a category that includes numerous devices for level, flow, pressure, temperature measurement and even detailed analysis of liquids. This group includes a variety of flow meters (ultrasonic, positive displacement, SAW, differential pressure etc.), fluid analysis units (ph / orp, chlorine, turbidity), and armatures.
Multi-parameter transmitters may combine in one assembly number of different sensors for various purposes. Devices work with common industrial protocols Profinet, Ethernet TCP / IP, Modbus TCP, PROFIBUS, CANopen and use IO-Link technology.
Liquid and Mass flow controllers perform precise dosing, continuous regulation and control of gaseous media (methanol, ammonia, etc.). To control gas flows, MFC (mass flow controllers) and MFM (Mass Flow meters) are used. LFC (Liquid Flow Controllers) and LFM (Liquid Flow Meters) are available for working with liquids.
Solenoid control valves include units with orifices down to 0.05 mm. Burkert`s R&D teams significantly reduce friction and sliding in the valves. This gives them a greater span, perfect accuracy and sensitivity.
Pneumatics and Process interfaces are fully involved in industrial automation systems and their components. Series are released for centralized or distributed control. Using the new AirLINE Quick adapter for automation systems reduces the number of components and cables in industrial cabinets.
Microfluidics category contains valves, pumps and system units with miniature dimensions. The devices have modular design and low power consumption. Such products are quite popular in medicine, science, In-Vitro Diagnostics and many other areas where accuracy and miniature sizes are important.
The company also produces units such as filtration modules, cylinders for pneumatics, power supplies, fittings and different other components for flow control systems. The manufacturer also makes its own software for the products.
Burkert has more than 60 years of experience in developing and manufacturing fluid and gases control products. The presence of own laboratories and research centers has made the company's products a benchmark for flow management components.
