Bürkert announces free technical training schedule for 2013

04 February 2013

Bürkert Fluid Control Systems has announced it is continuing to offer free training courses to those involved in process industries such as food and beverages.

The specialist manufacturer of control and measuring systems for fluids and gases, will regularly run courses on steam, gas handling, sensors, valves and hygienic processing from its new headquarters in Cirencester.

“We are passionate about sharing knowledge and our training programmes are designed to deliver the greatest benefit and education to those who attend,” said course coordinator and marketing manager, Helen Christopher. “Our training is based firmly on the knowledge and experience we exercise on a daily basis. Our course structure is well established and the course content is generated immediately prior to the course starting. You will experience the best of both worlds; comfortable and professional delivery, and the very latest data.” 

According to Bürkert, the courses provide theory based learning, backed up with practical applications, for a hands-on approach. The company use examples and case study materials throughout the courses in a bid to highlight typical applications, all delivered by its industry experienced staff. The recent move to its new Cirencester headquarters has made travelling more convenient and easy to access by car and train, with free parking onsite.

Bürkert says it aims to provide information on the real physics of batching, cleaning and sterilising, water producing and distributing, filling, heating, cooling, separating, fermenting, distilling, or evaporating, where engineers can share experience in complete control loops for flow, conductivity, pH, temperature, pressure, and level. The free training courses are modular and are independent of each other, with lunch and refreshments available throughout the day. 

“One of the reasons we decide not to charge for training is that it removes a barrier preventing people from attending,” Christopher continued. “Delegates’ expectations are generally surpassed after each course, so much so that most training requests are from word of mouth referrals.” 

Bürkert’s training schedule for 2013 includes a one day Sensors Training Course in February, which will cover the basics of flow management; different measuring principles and how to select the most appropriate type for various applications. The agenda is said to have proved so popular that spaces were fully booked within 48 hours of release. March sees the first of the steam training sessions, which are repeated in July and November, with valve training being delivered in May. A new course has been devised for September on Gas Handling, where Bürkert experts will share their experience in complete gas control loops. Gas control architecture will be considered as well as assessing what is happening in typical plants. In October the Hygienic Processing course will include many delegates from the food & beverage and industries. In each course, trainers will show how to apply the basic principals in real factory and plant layouts.
