Burton Corblin® P-Series of API618 Reciprocating Compressors
Burton Corblin® compressors are designed and manufactured as individually engineered packages to meet the specific demands of unique applications.

Key benefits

  • Reliable: Meet or exceed API 618 or industry standards.
  • Model sizing: Designed with conservative speed and mechanical stress limits.
  • Single & dual compartment distance pieces allow for internal pressurization or gas recovery, or both, if required.
  • Horizontal cylinders with removable liners. Water cooling of cylinders.
  • Robust conservative speed design able to integrate critical processes and be fitted for long term in complex site structures.
  • Water cooled cylinders. Water cooling of cylinder ends using open-circuit, closed loop thermo siphon, static fill or other methods as appropriate
  • Engineered solutions: Incorporate control systems, regulation equipment, gas treatment plant and any other additional modules and utility packages required by the circumstances.
  • Easy integration (Skid mounted turn Key solutions): Most of packages are delivered in one piece.
  • Package customisation Each fully integrated package can incorporate control systems, regulation equipment, gas treatment plant and any other additional modules and utility packages required by the circumstances
  • Range of capacity control systems designed to precisely govern and optimize flow rate while reducing energy consumption.
  • Solutions developed on a variety of gases. Tolerate particles and condensates.
  • Easy to operate Technology easy to maintain: designed with easy access to components requiring routine maintenance.
  • FFPTM Piston Ring Life Extension Howden’s innovative approach can be clearly seen not only in technology such as Free Floating Piston (FFPTM) which extends the gaps between maintenance breaks on compressors, but also the way we select compression solutions that precisely match site and customer needs

More information can be found in the compressor brochure.

Standard Features

  • Compressing ratio defined for each compression stage. Requires profound knowledge of the behavior of the gas as temperatures and pressures change during the compression cycle.
  • Water cooled cylinders.

Standard Features

  • FFPTM and piston ring design to extend the running time of non-lubricated wear bands (rider rings)
  • Rod drop Monitoring System
  • Flow control solutions (Step capacity control, Progressive capacity control, by pass variable speed regulation, clearance pockets…)
  • Control cabinets, DCS
  • Single & dual compartment distance piece
  • Spec compliant: Match design specifications. (Overall dimensions, connections, specific instrumentation, tagging, color, area protection, and prevention from chemical, sand, salt aggressiveness…)

Applications

The oil and gas industries extract and transport fluids in exceptionally challenging environments involving extreme highs and lows of temperature, high humidity and salinity and remote locations both on and offshore. Burton Corblin® robustness and reliability is a vital part of the supply chain.

  • Oil & Gas Up stream : Gas injection, Flare gas
  • Oil & Gas Mid stream : Storage, Gas Drying, Gas boosting, Gas turbine feed
  • Oil & Gas Down stream Refinery and Petrochemical: Hydro treatment, HDS. Make-up, recycle and regeneration compressors for reactors. (Isomerisation, Catalytic reforming, wax..). H2, N2, Air utility compressors.
  • In the chemical sector: handling of a wide range of light and heavy gases, corrosive, flammable, toxic or bio-hazardous components. Fluor process, chemistry, paints, pharmaceutical, research & laboratories, polysilicon production.
  • Power : Vapour recovery, gas turbine feed, pressure testing, biogas, landfill gases, electrolyser packages.
  • Industrial production processes: Food & drink, bottling, Iron & steel...
Spare Parts
The use of Burton Corblin® parts that exactly match the specifications and parameters of the originals can avoid a host of problems. We keep details of your installation on file so that we can check, before they leave us, that the spares we send are the ones you need.
Similarly, when we repair or replace a subassembly or design an upgrade, we can optimise it precisely to your requirements. From the smallest component to the replacement of control and monitoring systems with start-of-the-art versions, we believe that a complete understanding of the original installation is vital to success.
Howden customers have unlimited access to our Howden Compressor Service Centres - a global network of support locations offering an unrivalled local service and support across all of our compressor product ranges.
Our network can support all Howden compressor products as well as each and every one of our historical legacy brands, and parts and service for compressor brands not associated with Howden.
For detailed information on the range of services we can provide please visit our Service Centre pages, or find your nearest Howden Compressor Service Centre using our interactive map.
