Bürkert has released its latest generation of INOX valve bodies, which can eliminate the need for a large number of pipe sections, bends and connections in complex interfaces. Removing a collection of conventional piping greatly reduces space requirements, speeds up design and installation time and reduces opportunities for leaks.

According to the company, the modular valve body eliminates the need for conventional pipeline connections between single valves and with some sensors. The fluid connections are established by direct joining of the valve bodies.

This allows complex multi-layered and multi-port flow paths to be established using a simple-to-construct modular valve body arrangement and conventional valve heads.

The INOX DN10-size valve and new larger DN20 designs offer plant and process engineers a simple and fast implementation for extremely compact and robust valve systems with high functional reliability. The modular design of the valve bodies in both designs also enables the cost-effective production of small quantities.

The system is suitable for OEMs, plant engineers and integrators who only have limited installation space available for fluid function solutions. 

Key features and benefits

  • INOX can eliminate the need for a large number of pipe sections, bends and connections in complex interfaces.
  • The DN10 version accepts Bürkert’s INOX 2000 series stainless steel bodied valve actuator heads. The DN20 version accepts Burkert’s element valve series.
  • During installation, there is far less requirement to bend and cut pipes to length, fewer screwed connections and fewer 90˚ elbow or T joints used.
  • Besides saving time and material requirements for the installation, the new designs provide a reduced risk of leaking connections, especially in a system with alternating temperatures.
  • The separation of the inlet and outlet levels in the new valve bodies also makes it possible to optimise the Kv value, due to reduced redirection of fluid flow in comparison with conventional valves, making the system more efficient.
  • The significantly reduced piping requirements save not only space but also costs for extensive planning and installation, as well as materials.
  • Fewer pipe connections also mean fewer potential weak points and increased functional reliability due to a lower risk of leaks.
