Due to ecological constraints, sustainability has become a key issue in many industries and requires quick action and rethinking. Bürkert's experience in the field of automation and fluid controls, in machines, plants and processes over the past years has shown us that it usually does not require new technologies and products to increase the energy and resource efficiency of production processes and to achieve higher sustainability. Existing elements of digitalization and modern automation and control concepts can contribute significantly to the Green Transition. Often it is enough to use what is available and to think things differently.
We would like to demonstrate this with 4 examples that could contribute to noticeable energy savings, resource efficiency in sustainable food production.
- Rethinking the actuation and control of process valves and other pneumatic actuators.
