With over 50 years experience, Burkert provides custom and off-the-shelf fluid control solutions for a wide range of applications in water and waste, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, medical equipment, biotechnology, industrial process, chemical, and textile markets. Burkert's "Easy" solutions incorporate local intelligence into valves and sensors and link them with a wide range of industry standard control capabilities to the central process control. Burkert has earned a global reputation as a supplier of the most reliable and innovative solenoid valves, process valves, pneumatic systems, sensors, controllers, and complete fluid systems.
Burkert has been a technological development leader, often writing new chapters in valve technology such as the epoxy-encapsulated solenoid system: the DIN cable plug (which is now an ISO standard); the pivoted-armature valve system; as well as the impulse coil. Burkert has delivered many other firsts since producing our first solenoid valve 1954. These innovative solutions include: a range of non-metallic valves for aggressive fluids; explosion-proof valves for hazardous areas; high temperature solenoid valves; electric valve actuators; and the Easy LINK decentralized intelligent control loops that link sensors directly to valves, cutting system costs by up to 80 percent.
Burkert has facilities and distribution in 50 countries worldwide, with production facilities in the United States, Germany, Asia, and France. Included is a comprehensive staff of research, development, quality control, customer engineering support, and service personnel.
