Burckhardt Supplying Hyper Compressors In China

Burckhardt Compression will equip three Chinese petrochemical production lines—each with outputs of 300 to 400 kilotons per year—with Hyper Compressors.

The production of ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymers (EVA) and low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is technically highly demanding and requires Hyper Compressors as key components, Burckhardt said. These high-pressure reciprocating compressors compress ethylene with discharge pressure of up to 3500 bar and an installed power of up to 30,000 kW. Burckhardt Compression said it is one of the very few companies that manufacture these complex compressors. It has more than 55 years of experience in manufacturing Hyper Compressors.

Because of their mechanical and chemical properties LDPE and EVA are used to produce strong, elastic everyday plastic articles such as threaded caps and protective packaging; plastic films for the agriculture and horticulture industries; cable and wire sheathing and insulation; floor coverings and many other products.
