Context

Marstons brewery in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire has been expanding its production facilities to cater for the increased popularity of craft beers. The brewery wanted to replace control valves on its main chiller system to improve reliability and reduce project costs as the pipework and control valves on the existing storage tanks had reached the end of their service life.

Process assessment

The production engineers at Marstons contacted Burkert to source 84 large, electrically-actuated control valves. The valves are designed to control a water / glycol mix that cools the storage vessels. As part of a hygienic process, they needed to be stainless steel and the threaded connecting pipework was 2 inches (50mm) in diameter. The size and design of these valves meant that they would command a premium price, no matter which manufacturer supplied them.

Products supplied

Burkert supplied pneumatic valve islands and control valves with a significant saving compared to the electrically-actuated valves. The Burkert solution included its latest valve island, the Type 8652, that would be built into a European Hygienic Engineering and Design Group (EHEDG) panel, enabling it to be positioned close to the process.

Paired with Type 2000 valves, also in stainless steel with threaded connections, each fitted with a CLASSIC actuator, the whole reduced-cost package could be offered with a 2-year warranty, direct from Burkert.
