Burkert Process Valves Automation (On/Off)

Burkert offers a customized solution for automating process valves for your sanitary system. Their line is highly intelligent, yet simple to integrate. 

Type 8690 Pneumatic control unit for decentralized automation of ELEMENT process valves

The pneumatic control unit Type 8690 is designed for decentralized automation of ELEMENT Type 21xx pneumatic process valves. Mechanical or inductive limit switches register the position of the valve. The integrated pilot valve controls single or double-acting actuators. The design of the control unit and the actuator enables an internal control air channel without external tubings. Besides the electrical position feedback signal the status of the device is shown directly on the Control Unit itself. The housing is easy to clean and features proven IP protection and chemically resistant materials for use in hygienic processing, in food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Combined with Bürkert ELEMENT actuators the unique pilot valve system enables a compressed air recycling that avoids actuator chambers contamination from the environment.

  • Compact Design
  • Integrated pilot valve with manual override
  • Integrated control air routing
  • Visual position indicator
  • With ATEX II cat. 3G/D and cat. 2D/G approval

Type 8697 Pneumatic control unit for decentralized automation of ELEMENT process valves

The pneumatic control unit Type 8697 is designed for decentralized automation of process valves ELEMENT Type 21xx. Mechanical or inductive limit switches register the position of the valve. The integrated pilot valve controls single-acting actuators. The design of the control unit and the actuator enables an internal control air routing without external tubings. Besides the electrical position feedback signal the status of the device is shown directly on the control unit itself via LEDs. The housing is easy to clean and features proven IP protection and chemically resistant materials for use in hygienic processing, in food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Combined with Bürkert ELEMENT actuators the unique pilot valve system enables a compressed air recycling that avoids actuator chambers contamination from the environment.

  • Compact Design
  • Integrated pilot valve with manual override
  • Integrated control air routing
  • Automatic end position adjustment
  • With ATEX II cat. 3G/D and cat. 2D/G approval

Type 8691 Control head for decentralized automation of ELEMENT process valves

The control head Type 8691 is designed for decentralized automation of ELEMENT Type 21xx pneumatic process valves. The registration of the valve end position is done through a contact-free analog position sensor, which automatically recognises and saves the valve end position through the Teach function when starting up. The integrated pilot valve controls single or double-acting actuators. As an option a fieldbus interface, AS-Interface or DeviceNet, can be chosen.The design of the control unit and the actuator enables an internal control air channel without external tubings. Besides the electrical position feedback signal the status of the device is shown directly on the control head itself through coloured powerful LEDs showing a clear visible valve position status, even under dirty or dark environments. The housing is easy to clean and features proven IP protection and chemically resistant materials for use in hygienic processing in food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Focused on wash down applications the IP rating is supported by a positive pressure inside the control head. Combined with Bürkert ELEMENT actuators the unique pilot valve system enables a compressed air recycling that avoids actuator chambers contamination from the environment.

  • Contact-free inductive valve position registration(Teach function)
  • Coloured illuminated status display
  • Integrated control air routing
  • Fieldbus AS-Interface or DeviceNet (option)
  • With ATEX II cat. 3G/D approval

Type 8695 Control head for decentralized automation of ELEMENT process valves

The control head Type 8695 is designed for decentralized automation of ELEMENT Type 21xx process valves with smaller nominal size. The registration of the valve position is done through a contact-free analog position sensor, which automatically recognises and saves the valve end position through the teach function when starting up. The integrated pilot valve controls single or double-acting actuators. The design of the control unit and the actuator is specially designed for the requirements of a hygienic process environment and enables an internal control air channel without external tubings. Besides the electrical position feedback signal the status of the device is shown directly on the control head itself through coloured LEDs showing a clear visible valve position status. As an option a fieldbus interface, AS-Interface, can be chosen. The housing is easy to clean and features proven IP protection and chemically resistant materials for use in hygienic processing in food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. Combined with Bürkert ELEMENT actuators the unique pilot valve system enables a compressed air recycling that avoids actuator chambers contamination from the environment.

  • Contact-free inductive valve position registration (Teach function)
  • Coloured illuminated status display
  • Integrated control air routing
  • Fieldbus AS-Interface or DeviceNet (option)
  • With ATEX II cat. 3G/D approval
