Optimal growth conditions for cell cultivation and fermentation in new food production processes
Be it animal cells for cultivated meat, mammalian cells for cultivated milk or organic cells to grow fungi, yeast or algae under precise fermentation conditions – Bürkert is the perfect partner for the efficient and precise automation of bioreactors and fermenters producing new food products! Bürkert provides a unique portfolio of solutions and competencies to efficiently realize and automate your fluid control tasks in the production of cultivated or fermented food products.
Only when all control loops function perfectly your equipment can ensure efficient production processes and high-quality food products. We offer solutions for the precise control of all relevant process parameters such as process temperature, pressure, pH, oxygen content or nutrient supply, and thereby optimise growth conditions and process safety for your new food production process.
Bürkert will help you to increase cell density in the cultivation to become more cost efficient, safe cell culture media and increase product yield. Our solutions ensure scalability and modularity of your production process resulting in a shorter time-to-market and flexible reactions to changing consumer preferences as well as regulatory guidelines.
Bürkert offers modular, scalable and efficient solutions for gas and nutrient supply, pressure and temperature control as well as efficient automation and networking of these different components and solutions – or in short: Perfect growth conditions for your fermentation and cell cultivation from small to large production volumes. This makes Bürkert the perfect partner for fluid control and automation challenges in your production process for cultivated or fermented food products.
Add-on profiles considerably speed up the configuration and parameterisation of EtherNet/IP-based components in systems with ‘Logix 5000™’ automation solutions by Rockwell Automation. This saves valuable time for system constructors and integrators after device replacement and when recommissioning complex systems. At the same time, they are supported by helpful functions during configuration and parametrising, which reduces susceptibility to errors and creates significant free space.
