Future-proof production processes for cosmetics and personal care

High productivity with low usage of resources is the largest challenge for the cosmetics and personal care industry. Mutual goals are reducing CO2 emissions, reducing operating costs and improving product quality. Bürkert’s intelligent process automation solutions for all production steps offer the operator maximum process control - for extremely efficient control of your base raw materials and end products, such as creams, lotions, shampoos or toothpastes.


With the right application, digital technologies will considerably reduce overall project costs and speed up implementation. Operating costs can also be reduced by optimising processes and reducing product losses. Progressive energy and waste management considerably improves environmental targets. With the aid of stored recipes, the operator can also perform a change of product in no time at all.

The implementation of digital systems and intelligent field devices, such as control heads and positioners for process valves, reduce the overall risks thanks to progressive diagnosis. Quality improvements can be achieved in both the end product and operating procedures. Digital technologies ensure accuracy and reproducibility, offering perfectly coordinated formulations for your production.

Systems with Logix 5000™ controllers – How you can massively speed up parametrisingSystems with Logix 5000™ controllers – How you can massively speed up parametrising

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. Find out more in our whitepaper.

Everything from a single source

From the complete control loop, in which we combine actuators and sensors, to the turnkey system or control cabinet solution – we offer a broad portfolio and the ability to combine it.

Increased system efficiency

Detect media changes faster with tailor-made sensors to accelerate product recovery and Clean in Place (CIP) processes. This saves resources and avoids rejects.

Process automation

Bürkert’s comprehensive portfolio that supports the industry-leading technologies, as well as the user-friendly operation and easy integration of components and systems optimise your processes. 

Intelligent Bürkert solutions for the cosmetics and personal care industry

Water treatment
The challenge: to ensure high water quality for formulating high-quality cosmetics and body care products.
The Bürkert solution: the water quality can be continuously monitored in an efficient manner with our state-of-the-art type 8905 online analysis system and its analysis sensors.
Process automation
The challenge: flexibly implementable automation solutions to increase process stability and increase product quality.
The Bürkert solution: Bürkert is the only provider with a comprehensive portfolio for the implementation of decentralised and distributed automation concepts – and can therefore provide neutral advice.
The challenge: to ensure process reliability and efficiency.
The Bürkert solution: process reliability is guaranteed by direct safety integration, FLOWave and the right valves. Process efficiency is ensured, for example, by media changes that are recognised quickly.
The challenge: avoid waste in order to protect environment and resources.
The Bürkert solution: optimal mixing ratios, thanks to precise control technology and reliable sensors for phase differentiation.
The challenge: quick, repeatable product filling.
The Bürkert solution: FLOWave flowmeter with batch controller in combination with filling valves – including precise pressure control in the supply tank.
