Type 2080 2/2-way valve with PTFE bellows for hygienic processesBurkert's Type 2080 2/2-way valve features a PTFE bellows for fluid separation in hygienic processing applications. Constructed from stainless steel, the FDA-approved Type 2080 offers a long operating life with neutral to aggressive gases and liquids. It is suitable for use with foodstuffs and offers users the time-saving benefits of CIP and SIP capability.

Compact and robust, the Type 2080 is designed for fluid separation tasks with gases and liquids in the range from vacuum to 8bar, and temperatures from ambient to +90degC. The valve has the body, actuator, flange and wetted parts manufactured from stainless steel, and a highly corrosion-resistant bellows manufactured from TFM-PTFE

The modular design of the Type 2080 allows for flexible configuration with different types of armatures and customised port connections. The valve itself comprises a pneumatically-operated piston actuator with return spring, a stainless steel body and a PTFE bellows. The pneumatic actuator is servo-assisted by a pilot valve, a valve block or similar for faster, more precise response. Position detection is provided by reed contacts in a two-wire arrangement that can signal over distances of up to 3m. The option of a three-position actuator giving high and low flow rates means this valve is suitable for high-accuracy batching applications.

Valve options

Burkert says the Type 2080 valve is fully optimised for use in food technology applications. In addition to its material specification, the valve offers optional flange connection - with manifold pattern, tube weld and G 3/8 threaded ports being the other options - for maximum safeguarding of processes, and has internal contours that are simple to clean (for CIP and SIP). In addition, when used in the upright position, the 2080 offers the advantage of self-draining operation.

Burkert offers the Type 2080 either as a standalone unit or as part of a system combined with support components such as the Type 6012 pilot valve, the Type 8041 flow sensor, and the Type 8645 valve islands – the latter units providing flexible interfacing to third-party vendor PLCs.
