Burkert’s new extended range of Element process control components is suitable for food, hygienic processing and aggressive media transfer applications.

The Element system of high-performance stainless steel process measurement and control products, claimed to be one of the company’s best sellers this year, provides a complete systems approach, linking clean-line valves, sensors, positioners and valve actuators in a simple architecture to provide total control-loop processing for clean and washdown working environments.

The extended Element range provides a modular programme of process control products that combine to deliver solutions for specific process requirements, whether they are in environmentally aggressive or hygienic areas.

The products include valves for on/off and modulating control and sensors for pH/ORP, conductivity and level, as well as digital positioners, control heads and actuators, all of which are designed for valve mounting, delivering maximum space saving and performance, according to Burkert.

In addition, the integration of backlit displays and coloured status lights on many Element products enables users to have more interaction and transparency in their systems by being able to quickly determine diagnostic messages at a glance.

An autonomous system offering on-board intelligence options and flexible integration options, Element enables distributed control solutions that would otherwise require large control cabinets, and it does so with less investment in planning, assembly and maintenance, as well as wiring and pneumatic hose connections.

Key to these advantages is the physical nature of the Element control platform and the system’s connectivity – both local and distributed.

The Element platform is said to be rugged and clean, featuring clean-line control products that combine the chemical characteristics of engineered polymers with the endurance and finish of stainless steel.

As a result, Element products are simple to clean; there is no paint to flake, no interstices to collect dirt and fewer pneumatic lines to protrude.

The fact that the Element units offer simple maintenance means they are more environmentally friendly than other solutions, according to the company.

In terms of connectivity, local distributed intelligence – and, at the same time, full connection to the co-ordinating level – is provided in an optimal device design for a range of applications.

Factory-floor communications and status monitoring are available via simple 4-20mA or via a range of digital communication protocols.

In addition, Element valves and sensors can also be linked via Burkert’s Airline 8644 system.

This overcomes plant standardisation and communication protocol issues by integrating Burkert high-performance solenoid valves with analogue and digital I/O modules and fieldbus communications from PLC vendors including Siemens, Rockwell, GE Fanuc, Bosch, Beckhoff, Phoenix Contact, Wago and Hitachi.
