Customised Solution

Do you want to develop and realise a customised solution with us?




Automated fluidics solutions for machines in the pharmaceutical industry

Developing, producing and installing machines for sterile environments requires a wealth of specialist knowledge, for example in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products. You are faced with the challenge of meeting the very high quality standards of the pharmaceutical industry and at the same time effectively managing your own company.
Find out how Bürkert can support you in all project phases and develop automation solutions for you that offer your customer real added value – even in international projects

Conventional fluidics solutions and their weaknesses

Precisely controlling and distributing the different media in production processes is one of the most demanding tasks facing pharmaceutical industry machinery. Nevertheless, the construction and start-up of the skids must be as economical and efficient as possible.

How Bürkert solutions intelligently and efficiently control sterile processes

Unique expertise in fluidics and automation solutions

Bürkert accompanies you in the development, production and installation of machines for the pharmaceutical industry, whether you manufacture in series or individually customise solutions to meet the needs of your customers. In addition to technologically mature components and systems for sterile fluidic processes – for example, customised block solutions, hygienic diaphragm valves and sensors as well as systems with critical properties including cleanability, high reliability and traceability – we also provide you with objective support in selecting the appropriate automation solutions.


How Bürkert solutions save you and your customers money

Bürkert diaphragm valves with tube valve bodies are manufactured in a particularly material-saving way. As a result, they are lighter and have less thermal mass than conventional valves.

Example calculation: Thanks to the lightweight design of the “tube valve body”, you save energy and thus operating costs

In this calculation we take a medium-sized pharmaceutical plant that is to be newly built. Type 2031 valves with pneumatic control in various DNs (according to ASME or DN ISO) are required for controlling media in sterile environments. Below we compare the respective weight of a valve with forged body with that of a comparable “tube valve body”.

Total weight reduction

In particular, the weight reduction of 4.5 t and 1.96 t due to the lower valve mass results in the following advantages:

  • lower operating costs due to faster heating and cooling times – here using the example of a sterilisation process
  • possible savings in freight and handling costs.
