Maintenance-free valves introduced by Bürkert

Bürkert Fluid Control Systems has introduced a new series of electrically actuated quarter-turn valves.

The 3003 and 3004 series are both designed to offer fast and reliable control to support a variety of applications from 20Nm to 100Nm, says the company.

The compact valves can be powered by a range of both AC and DC supplies as well as offering analogue control inputs and outputs. Additional features such as extra limit switches, potentiometers and emergency supplies can also be connected.

The Type 3004 valve is classified as Atex II 2 GD Ex d II B T6 and rated to IP67 and is therefore suitable for installation in areas classified as Zone 1.

The 3004 is also more powerful than the 3003, offering a maximum torque of 300Nm, while still offering similar options for the supply voltage and the analogue input and output signals.
