Bürkert - Fromagerie Bel
Diary Products with AS-Interface
At its Cléry-le-Petit site in the Meuse, Fromagerie Bel wanted
to add an extra protein constituent to the milk collected locally
in order to guarantee consistent quality of the cheese produced.
TETRA PAK constructed a new system in which flow management is
handled by 180 fieldbus controlled valves. Bürkert supplied 180
control heads to be fitted to the valves. Providing optimal
reliability and safety, the new series 8681 control head is
particularly suited to aseptic environments as it offers hygienic
design, IP65/67 protection rating and good resistance to chemical
cleaning products. In addition, Bürkert's patented magnetic
activation system provides easy and safe access to the control head
for preventive maintenance.
