(lgchem) -- LG Chem has chosen Burckhardt
Compression to deliver one hyper compressor as a secondary compressor and one
process gas compressor as a booster/primary compressor for its low-density
polyethylene (LDPE) ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) plant in Daesan, Korea.
After a thorough evaluation phase, LG Chem selected Burckhardt
Compression, thanks to the proven technology and numerous references to LDPE
plants with similar or larger capacities. For LG Chem, it is essential to have a
single point of contact for both compressors since both compressors are
installed in the main production line and are interdependent. Burckhardt
Compression bears the overall responsibility for the package, that is, for
compressing ethylene gas over the whole compression range.
compressors are scheduled for delivery in December 2012.
