Seal of approval for Bürkert Solenoid Valves

May 29 2017 Read 1304 Times

Industry design validation and approvals can be a lengthy, but essential, process that ensures components are suitable for operation in specialist applications. Bürkert Fluid Control Systems has achieved over 20 approvals for its solenoid valve range - that together provide a guarantee to end users that every product has met or surpassed the required standard.

Fluid control products, especially solenoid valves, are used all over world in numerous applications, many of which enforce strict design criteria to ensure the safety and well-being of personnel and end users. Operating in potentially explosive atmospheres or hygienic conditions requires specific technical characteristics to be achieved before any certification can be issued and only suppliers with the correct approvals, accredited by a recognised body where necessary should be trusted.

Most industries are governed by various sets of standards that dictate the specifications of equipment in use. Very often they can specify particular design criteria and material specifications that need to be maintained in order to be classified as suitable for operation in particular applications. These standards and approvals vary between countries, even for the same application, which can make the design process particularly arduous.

In many cases regional certifications are used as a basis for individual, market-specific approvals; for example components destined to operate in potentially explosive atmospheres may be certified to IECEx Cat2, but in countries such as Korea and China further national testing may be required to meet KOSHA and NEPSI standards respectively.

Bürkert continuously monitors approvals requirements to ensure that its products are able to meet the challenges of modern industrial processes, including the creation of all the necessary documentation. With so many regional and national approvals systems, attention to detail is crucial to ensure components are properly accredited.

Bürkert has a wide range of fluid control solenoid valves, many of which are certified to a number of different standards to ensure acceptance in a variety of applications.
