Bürkert presents a flexible solution for process automation in water treatment. The diverse areas of application for the Type 8640 valve terminal and the Type 8644 automation system in the water treatment industry are expanded by Air-LINE Quick with an adapter plate and integrated push-in connectors. Installation and commissioning are now reduced to a minimum. You determine the installation location of the valve terminal or valve block: on the wall or floor of the control cabinet. AirLINE Quick supports both options.

AirLINE Quick significantly reduces the number of components in the control cabinet. Less pneumatic hoses and cables are needed as AirLINE Quick is directly integrated into the floor or wall of the control cabinet, eliminating the need for bulkhead connections on the cabinet. Additional stability is provided by a supplementary fixation plate at the cabinet's exterior. AirLINE Quick simplifies the commissioning and installation process and reduces the mounting and installation time. A unique feature of Type 8640 and the Type 8644 automation system is the combination of the pneumatic connections, field bus interface and I/O modules directly on the floor or wall of the control cabinet, which means that the control cabinet can be generally smaller than in the past.
AirLINE Quick, combined with the important integrated process safety features such as check-valves, which are integrated in the exhaust air channels and the pneumatic hot-swap function (P-channel shut-off) which makes it possible to replace a valve while the system is in operation, now offers the best solution for centralized pneumatic piloting devices in process automation.
Both the AirLINE Quick adapter plate and the pneumatic connectors are available in a stainless steel version for use in hygienic processes as required by the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. In less critical applications, anodized aluminum adapter plates and nickel-plated brass connectors can be used as a cost-saving alternative providing all the benefits of AirLINE Quick.
