Bürkert introduces a new body for membrane valves, which is foremost designed for hygienic applications.
The body is manufactured using a patented technology called hydroforming and meets the highest requirements for materials and cleanability of the valve. What makes this body unique is its low weight, smooth and hygienic design, which compensates the disadvantages of using forged or cast bodies.
The new housing is washed according to EHEDG, has high stability properties and ideal coating quality. An important advantage is also that the body is made of a tube of high-quality 316L stainless steel, from which other parts of the production line are made.
In addition, compared to cast bodies, there is no cavitation or any other faults due to manufacturing technology, which in turn reduces the risk of contamination significantly.
