With joint distribution of Bürkert and Schwarzer Precision products in effect across the UK, Burkert can now supply increasingly complex fluid systems consisting of valves, sensors, controllers and pumps. Customers can source state-of-the-art pump and valve technology all from Bürkert UK, enabling rapid project turnarounds, fully customised fluidic performance, and minimal logistics expenditure.
Schwarzer Precision GmbH & Co KG was founded in 1970 by Jürgen Schwarzer. Over the decades, the company, based in Essen, Germany has evolved from manufacturing aquarium equipment to high-performance miniature pumps. Now their extensive product range covers everything from gas and liquid pumps to diaphragm pumps, mini vane pumps, piston pumps, linear pumps and rotary pumps.
In 2011, Schwarzer Precision was awarded the Großer Preis des Mittelstandes (Grand Prize for Medium-Sized Enterprises) from the Oskar Patzelt Foundation. Considered the most coveted business award in Germany, this accolade recognised Schwarzer’s exemplary corporate management from the first point of contact right through to their to aftercare service.
Bürkert’s partnership with Schwarzer Precision combines our expertise in designing micro-fluidic process controls and manifolds with Schwarzer’s aptitude for precision-engineered pumps. Now, in conjunction with Schwarzer, we can prototype pumps in less than 5 days. Every aspect of the pump design can be specified, from housing materials right down to specialist connections and valves.
Working closely with Bürkert’s Systemhaus, Schwarzer engineers can create prototype designs within a matter of days. Bürkert system engineers fine-tune the design of the pump and its integration with the manifold or process component to create the initial assembly, which can then be integrated within wider micro-fluidic process control designs.
The end result? Precision instruments with a minimal footprint and whisper-quiet performance.
The following are examples of Schwarzer Precision miniature pump products that Bürkert UK can supply.
FZ vane pumps
The smallest of its type in the world. These rotary valve pumps offer the optimal solution for pumping low volumes in a high-precision, pulsating-free fashion. Lightweight at just 12g, these compact, low-power vane pumps are especially suitable for portable machines.
EC eccentric diaphragm pumps
Deliver maximum reliability and performance from the smallest of envelopes. Compatible with pressure or vacuum pumps, these miniature diaphragm pumps deliver maximum leak-tightness, high chemical resistance and reliable performance from a few millilitres to 18 l/min.
RO rotary diaphragm pumps
Combine maximum operational efficiency and impermeability with almost linear pressure-volume characteristics. They generate pressure up to 1.3 bar, with an extracted volume up to 5.3 l/min, delivering impressive cost-performance ratios in larger-scale applications.
