Bürkert launches hygienic actuator for rotary valves

Bürkert has released a stainless steel hygienic rotary actuator for automated control of hygienic applications with ball and butterfly valves. The Type 2053 actuator features ISO 5211 mounting, meaning it can be retrofitted to virtually all brands of the rotary valve and can be specified with an integrated rotary valve positioner. 
The Type 2053 launch opens the hygienic actuator market for Bürkert, which will supply OEMs and end-users primarily for food & beverage applications, including dairies, breweries, and distilleries. Manufactured from Type 304 stainless steel, the actuator will also be presented to the pharmaceutical and water treatment sectors as well as applications demanding hygiene and frequent washdown. Available in sizes P0, P1, and P2, the actuator is compatible with any variety of ball or butterfly rotary valves.
The actuator can be specified with a Bürkert Element control head from the on/off Type 8691 to the modulating process control of the Type 8693, enabling the Type 2053 actuator to be used as any part of a decentralised automation solution. Control capability is also provided within a compact package, enabling OEMs to reduce space requirements. Communication takes place over Bürkert Systembus (büS), based on the CANopen protocol, with support for PROFINET, PROFIbus, Ethernet, and Modbus/TCP. The Element control head interface is common to Bürkert’s linear valves, reducing cost and time in stocking and procurement for existing Bürkert valve users upgrading to the new Type 2053 actuator.
