Bürkert expands Element portfolio

Adds Neutrino analytical transmitters

Bürkert has added the Element Neutrino analytical transmitters to its Element products for total loop process control. The 8202 (for pH or redox potential) and 8222 (for conductivity) combine high-performance with economy, the UK firm says.

Versatile in use, the Neutrino transmitters operate with different sensor types, offering easy adoption across the widest range of applications where measurement of pH, ORP or conductivity is required.

Burkert’s modular Element system links clean line valves, sensors, positioners and valve actuators in an intelligent architecture to solve total control loop processes. It is said to save processing time by offering total control solutions for media from slurries to steam, and from de-ionised water to hydrochloric acid.

The Neutrino transmitters feature a patented variable electrical connection for pH electrodes, making it possible to use most pH electrodes with a 12mm diameter and an S7 connection. Three cell constants (0.01, 0.1 or 1) are offered for measuring conductivity, which ensures maximum versatility when exchanging sensors, as well as easy adaptability to the required task.

The overall benefits resulting from this versatility are reduced inventory costs and administrative requirements, together with improved product life cycle, the company says.

Adding to the functionality and accuracy of the Neutrino transmitters is an integrated pt1000 sensor, which provides internal temperature compensation. This eliminates the requirement for a separate temperature sensor, as well as the additional costs for its installation and operation.

Both the 8202 and 8222 Neutrino transmitters are supplied with a key for selecting the required measuring mode, and offer measuring range selection with 16-position multipoint switch and allocated ranges, together with the facility for one-point and two-point calibration for pH and ORP. Monitoring for calibration processes, device status, warning and alarms, is provided via an integrated LED status display.
