Bürkle develops, manufactures and distributes manual sampling systems, filling machines for aggressive liquids and plastic lab equipment.

Bürkle GmbH was founded in 1950 by Otto Bürkle in Stuttgart as a commercial agency for pharmaceutical products and plastic lab equipment. After his death in 1972, his son Veit Bürkle took over the company, re-locating to Lörrach in 1981 in order to start new production there. The company moved its location to Bad Bellingen, Germany in 2008. The site includes a production building, warehouse and a modern office building on an area of 18,000 square metres.

Today, Bürkle offers Europe's most comprehensive product line in manual samplers and filling machines. The clear focus must be on safety when bottling aggressive liquids, and on reliable information about quality, properties or composition when sampling. Bürkle products are manufactured exclusively in Germany. The highest quality possible and constant innovation are top priorities for Bürkle.

Ever since 1994, Bürkle has been certified according to DIN/EN ISO 9001 by the Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Zertifizierung von Managementsystemen (German Agency for the Certification of Management Systems).

Problem-solving and niche products are both Bürkle's speciality and the secret of success. Many products have been developed in a practice-orientated manner during collaborations with companies in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries based in the Basel area. In recent years, Bürkle has been able to achieve significant growth rates, mainly in double-digits.

The company sets great store by collaborations based on partnership with customers, employees and the management; a continuous constructive dialogue with customers in order to keep optimising the products is the drive for Bürkle's constant growth.

Main Products

Stainless steel barrel pump - discharge tube

The Bürkle barrel pump made of stainless steel AISI 304 (1.4301) is suitable for filling combustible and easily flammable liquids. The barrel pump can conduct electricity and therefore fulfills the requirements for handling flammable liquids in combination with the accessory antistatic set.The PTFE gaskets ensure long-term and maintenance-free use. Pumping capacity approx. 9–22 l/min, dependent on pump length.The wide range of accessories makes it possible to adapt the pump to very different requirements.

Electric pumps

Barrel pump for light viscous mineral oil products, such as diesel, fuel oil, hydraulic fluid, machinery and motor oil, etc.

Safety storage container stainless steel

Safety containers for transport and storage made of high-quality stainless steel AISI 304 (1.4301) / AISI 316 Ti (1.4571) with thickness of sides of 0.8 mm (10 l), 1.2 mm (25 l) and 1.5 mm (50 l). The 25 l container can be stacked.Protection from exploding through flame protection and excess pressure valve, seals made of PTFE, the containers have a high degree of chemical resistance.In safety containers with excess pressure valve, pressure balance takes place from about 0.3 bar.For containers with self-closing tap, constant ventilation can be set via a plastic lever on the screw cap.The contents display made of perfluoroalkoxy copolymers (PFA) enables a visual contents check when filling and emptying.

Industry Applications

Cooling, dry ice

SnowPack dry ice machine to create dry ice in the form of tablets, various sizes, simply made of CO2. SnowPack® enables you to obtain a -79 °C dry ice tablet weighing 50 or 250 g within a few moments, without complicated technology and without electricity! You can therefore obtain low-cost cooling to very low temperatures at any time you like. SnowPack® is often used in hospitals, universities, schools, institutes, laboratories, in the chemical industry and in materials testing facilities.

Draining rack, wallmount

Draining rack made of plastic, shatterproof, proven thousands of times in the lab and adjusted to the requirements there.The stable rods are individually placed into the holes of the draining rack and are clicked into place. Their positions can be changed at any time. Using a combination of rods of three different lengths (60 mm, 100 mm and extension to 150 mm), the draining rack can be adapted to any apparatus which is to be dried.

VacuMan vacuum or pressure pump

Hand pump can be operated with one hand to create a vacuum or pressure, independent of a power supply (e.g. vacuum filtration, taking samples, dissipation of desiccators). Maintenance-free, self-lubricating, mainly corrosion resistant. Connection for hoses with 6.4 mm inner Ø. Available in PVC or aluminium for heavy duty.

Components and Functionalities


Cylindrical T hose connector to connect hoses.

Gastight barrel connector

The gas tight barrel screw joint prevents hazardous gases from escaping from the barrel. R 2" steel barrel thread, non-return valve with connection 1/8". Nickel-plated brass, seals made of FKM.

Magnetic centrifugal pump 29 Watt

Magnetic centrifugal pump 29 Watts, motor 230 V, material PP (fibre glass reinforced), stainless steel, Rulon (bearing), FKM (seal), ceramics (shaft).The magnetic centrifugal pumps are suitable for transferring acids, alkalis, alkaline and electroplating baths, photography chemicals as well radioactive, sterile and highly corrosive liquids.
