Diaphragm valves for an automated production line at Unither
Unither is a world leader in the manufacture of formulations for the pharmaceutical industry. Its plant at Gannat, in the Department of Allier, is a specialised production site for manufacture of pharmaceuticals. The company wished to modernise its production equipment and therefore took the decision to fully automate the production line, from the raw materials preparation tank right through to the packaging machine. The new installation is equipped with ELEMENT diaphragm valves from Bürkert, offering a high degree of modularity with embedded diagnostic tools guaranteeing maximum reliability and safety. Limit switch devices with AS-i communication are installed on each pneumatic valve.
