Petrochemical Industry Solutions

Burckhardt Compression Solutions for the Petrochemical Industry

Safety and reliability. Your priorities are ours, too.

We know your industry. And equally important: your business processes. Burckhardt Compression booster/primary and Hyper compressors are vital components in LDPE production. And our Laby® and Process Gas Compressors are as important in Polypropylene and Polyethylene production and various related petrochemical applications around the globe.

We are fully aware that reliability and safety are of utmost importance in the petrochemical industry – for your employees, for the environment but also regarding your business flow. With tailor-made service solutions, we ensure that you benefit from increased uptime, increased mean time between overhaul (MTBO) and overall, less maintenance time and costs. No matter what compressor model or brand. There is no better investment than in your employees. With our training solutions for your staff, we make sure you have the compressor knowledge you need.

While we build on our long-standing technology expertise, we also very much look to the future. We have put a company-wide sustainability program in place and are well placed to contribute to your own efforts in this regard: we are well placed to support bioplastic production, reduce emissions, prevent leakage or oil spills or perform an energy-efficiency analysis of your production processes and much more. Additionally, we are cutting down on travel emissions by continually expanding our digital services.
