Electromotive process valves make compressed air obsolete

Written by: Tom Austin-Morgan | Published:

Bürkert has released the Type 3360 and Type 3361 electromotive process valves that are said to offer precision control without the need for compressed air. The valves are designed as a complete unit and provide a robust, efficient solution suitable for process applications where reliability and precision are key factors.

Their closed design forms a complete actuator and valve unit; as such they are available as either a globe valve (Type 3361) for the highest precision or an angle seat valve (Type 3360) for more general applications.

Communication with the control valves is managed through the service connection which enables the COMMUNICATOR software to configure the device, apply fault diagnosis and update software. There are also several fieldbus options for networking, such as Ethernet/IP, Modbus and Profinet, which are provided through the fieldbus gateway.

The electromotive valves are claimed to be among the quickest acting and precise control valves on the market, without the additional pipework and compressed air costs associated with pneumatically operated valves. The range is also compatible with the ELEMENT valve housings allowing existing pneumatic systems to be converted to electromotive.
