Highest Availability Combined with Best Maintainability
Availability and lowest life cycle costs
Burckhardt Compression offers high quality make-up and recycle compressor systems, designed in full compliance with API 618 standards. Our compressor portfolio stands for state-of-the-art technology and engineering, in order to reduce overall operating costs. In addition, the unequaled high availability leads to a significant improvement of mean time between overhauls (MTBO) and minimizes the risk of unplanned shutdowns.
The highest level of in-house expertise on compressor valves, sealing elements and materials and a fleet of five test compressor sets enable us to offer our demanding customers proven innovative valves and sealing elements with longest lifetime.
Safety and maintainability
Besides offering highest availability, our compressor solutions are specifically designed for best maintainability. The maintenance-optimized compressor designs provide access to all main wear parts and enable rapid parts repair and replacement, which results in a shorter down-time as well as reduced maintenance costs, by lowering service hours billed as well as spare-parts and logistics costs.
Burckhardt Compression is the first choice service provider for all reciprocating compressors. Our original spare parts backed by Burckhardt Compression’s manufacturing warranties stand for superior quality and ensure both low life cycle costs as well as the optimal operation of compressor systems.
A highly motivated team carries out refurbishment projects of any complexity to the full satisfaction of customers and can prolong the operating life of older compressors by retrofitting them with the latest technology.
