Howden compressors

Howden Burton Corblin Compressors

Howden Compressors are designed for long runtimes in continuous operation.

They ensure operational availability of up to 98%. Low maintenance costs and high efficiency also ensure minimal operating costs.


Technology: diaphragm compressors, piston compressors, screw compressors

Advantages of diaphragm compressors:

  • Compact design - due to the high volumetric efficiency of the compressor heads, a high pressure increase is achieved with relatively few steps
  • The purity of the gas is retained - The effective sealing of the compression chamber ensures contamination-free compression.
  • No contamination of the environment with the processed gas compressor - The complete isolation of the compression chamber prevents leakage
  • Maintaining the compression chamber integrity - the safety system detects possible rupture of one of the three head membranes.
  • Specific technical assessment of each application
  • Complete turnkey units with control systems, gas control system and gas treatment plants.
  • Easy maintenance - mostly by the operators themselves

Advantages of reciprocating compressors:

  • Dry (unlubricated) Compression Technology
  • Compressor design according to API 618, 4th edition
  • Pressure vessels in accordance with current international regulations
  • Complete turnkey units with control systems, gas control system and gas treatment plants
  • Tailored to the particular process walkthroughs
  • Specific technical assessment of each application
  • Easy maintenance - mostly run by the operators themselves

Advantages of screw compressors:

  • Maximum flexibility in operation
  • Very smooth running even in the most gases
  • Specific technical assessment of each application
