With such a successful history as Bürkert’s angle seat valve Type 2000, it was imperative for us to reproduce the same or higher levels of reliability and accuracy in this latest model. We believe that we have succeeded. This latest version of an enduring design promises a cost-effective solution, incorporating a wide range of high quality, fully tested valve body and valve seat materials.
Bürkert angle seat valve Type 2000
The externally piloted Bürkert 2000 series is operated with a single or double-acting piston actuator. The valve is available in a stainless steel or gunmetal housing with threaded, clamped or welded connection. High flow rates are attained with the virtually straight flow path and the reliable self–adjusting packing gland provides high sealing integrity. These maintenance-free, robust valves ensure a long service life and can be retrofitted with a comprehensive range of accessories for position indication, stroke limitation or manual override.
Our designers specified valve spindle seals manufactured from PTFE as standard. However, these can also be delivered with FKM or PEEK seals and wipers. The seal on the actual valve seat is typically made from PTFE, though other options include: NBR, EPDM and FKM. All of which offer additional benefits for certain applications.

Which angle seat valve?
The angle seat valve is a crowded, competitive market, with several similarly specified products vying for your attention. Comparative products, ranging from the E290 from ASCO Numatics, to the Buschjost 84500 and SMC’s VXB215, offer similar form and function with a few subtle differences. Stainless steel body construction is available on all barring Buschjost’s offering, which favours dezincification resistant brass. While PTFE seal types are the norm, except for SMC who favour FKM. Again, what you’ll find across the board is compact, space saving designs and largely comparable performance; with maximum operating pressures of 16 bar, high flow rates and maximum media temperatures up around the +180°C mark.
So why would you opt for the Bürkert Type 2000 over and above our competitors? Especially if you have been specifying the same angle seat valve product for years? It is a good question. As with most purchasing decisions, these things are purely subjective. However, there are several reasons why we think a move to Bürkert is a safe, logical and long-term investment.
