New control heads in the Fromagerie Bel dairy plant for consistent quality cheese

Control of protein addition in cheese production by fieldbus controlled valves in cooperation with Fromagerie Bel

Type 8681
Control Head for hygienic process valves

Success Story Fromagerie Bel

At its Cléry-le-Petit site in the Meuse, Fromagerie Bel wanted to add an extra protein constituent to the milk collected locally in order to guarantee consistent quality of the cheese produced. A new system was constructed in which flow management is handled by 180 fieldbus controlled hygienic process valves from Bürkert.

Providing optimal reliability and safety, the new series 8681 control head is particularly suited to hygienic environments as it offers hygienic design, IP65/67 protection rating and good resistance to chemical cleaning products. In addition, Bürkert’s patented magnetic activation system provides easy and safe access to the control head for preventive maintenance.
