“If you have a compressor problem, call Burckhardt Compression. They’ll make sure that your system is up and running again in no time. We were impressed with the professionalism of their highly experienced compressor specialists and trust them completely because they speak the OEM language.”

Richard Hallberg
Rotating Equipment Manager
Perstorp Oxo, Sweden


“We are very satisfied with the performance of the Burckhardt Poppet Valve™. After installing these valves, we have never had an unscheduled shutdown of the machine due to valve failure. It’s also great how they lower the overhaul cost of the valves and we like the fact that we don’t have to send the valves off-site for overhaul.”

Ewald Abgottspon

“After installing the Burckhardt Poppet Valves™ from Burckhardt Compression, our machines have run over 16’000 hours in oxygen service. We are fully satisfied with the results and our maintenance costs have been significantly reduced.”
