Pneumatically operated Tank Bottom Valve ELEMENT designed for regulation of ultra-pure, sterile or aggressive fluids
Success Story Unither
Unither is a world leader in the manufacture of formulations for the pharmaceutical industry. Its plant at Gannat is a specialised production site for manufacture of pharmaceuticals. The company wished to modernise its production equipment and therefore took the decision to fully automate the production line, from the raw materials preparation tank right through to the packaging machine.
The new installation is equipped with ELEMENT diaphragm valves from Bürkert, offering a high degree of modularity with embedded diagnostic tools guaranteeing maximum reliability and safety. Limit switch devices with AS-i communication are installed on each pneumatic valve. Among the advantages offered by the new installation are the stainless steel design of all valve types and the AS-i type 8691 control head with multi-colour position indicator for visualisatio of the position from a distance. Bürkert was the only manufacturer of components and solutions that was capable of responding to all of Unither‘s needs in terms of valves and instrumentation as well as BBS-type pipework accessories, such as viewing windows and filters.
