Burckhardt Compression to equip mega-plants with Hyper and Booster Primary Compressors

April 30/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Burckhardt Compression has signed contracts to equip three production lines for synthetics with Hyper Compressors. Each of these petrochemical mega-plants will have an output of 300 to 400 kilotons per year of LDPE and EVA/LDPE, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The production of EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymers) and LDPE (low-density polyethylene) is technically highly demanding and requires Hyper Compressors as key components. These high-pressure reciprocating compressors compress ethylene with discharge pressure of up to 3,500 bar and installed power of up to 30'000 kW. Burckhardt Compression 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.

As MRC reported before, in May 2017, Burckhardt Compression was selected to modernize MOL Petrochemicals' third-party Hyper Compressor at MOL's LDPE plant in Tiszaujvaros, Hungary. The goal was to improve production performance and to establish a comprehensive, long-term service capability with a running-hours guarantee. The Hyper Compressor at the low density polyethylene (LDPE) plant has been in operation at MOL Petrochemicals in Tiszaujvaros, Hungary, since 1991. Burckhardt Compression is well-known for its Hyper Compressors and the MOL Group already has positive experiences working with Burckhardt Compression at another LDPE site.
