Burckhardt Compression has signed in the last months 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.
Highly demanding production
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 highpressure reciprocating compressors compress ethylene with discharge pressure of up to 3,500 bar and an 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.
