Sector Manufacturing
Project type New build
Project location West Midlands
Client Cleone Foods
Products used Burkert Type 2000 flow control valves
 
 

For the past 10 years, Burkert Type 2000 flow control valves have been used to regulate the flow of steam and hot water to the cookers at Birmingham-based food processor, Cleone Foods. The company manufactures Jamaican patties and distributes them under its brand name, Island Delight.

Challenge

Maintaining productiving is very important for Cleone Foods, where processing downtime needs to be kept to a minimum. The company relies on its processing equipment to ensure an uninterrupted supply of its food products, and being able to replace components such as control valves is critical.

Solution

Burkert Type 2000 flow control valves regulate the supply of steam and hot water to the cookers in an area that is subject to repeated washdowns. More recently, the Type 2000 valves underwent a design update which reduced the overall length of the fluidic module. The new valve components were still compatible with the original valve bodies, so only the valve stem and actuators needed to be replaced. This meant that the new actuators were quick to install and resulted in minimal downtime.

Testimonial

Wade Lyn, Managing Director of Cleone Foods, said: "We have relied on the Burkert valves for many years now and they have certainly delivered in terms of service life. The new valve actuators were easy and quick to install and the advice we received from Burkert will help us to prolong their reliability even further."
