Kühnle, Kopp & Kausch (KK&K)

KK&K: A full range of world class industrial turbocompressors and steam turbines

​Dating back to 1899, Kühnle, Kopp & Kausch (KK&K) formed in Germany and have been designing industry leading turbo machinery ever since. Between 2006 and 2017 the KK&K products were sold under the name Siemens Turbomachinery Equipment GmbH, Howden are delighted to be able to return the Kühnle, Kopp & Kausch name back to the market.

Whether it is the range of industrial compressors or steam turbines, KK&K stands for state-of-the-art quality, "Made in Germany".


Industrial Turbocompressors

Howden offers a full range of pre-designed KK&K turbo compressors to meet the needs of the metallurgical, oil and gas and chemical industries. Single stage compressors and blowers with separate gearbox, integrated gearbox, or direct coupled can be matched with a range of drivers – steam turbine or electric motor – in a solution to match the needs of each unique customer. As one of the leading turbo machinery manufacturers with over 100 years of experience and continuous development, and a fleet of more than 4,000 installed turbo compressors and blowers, we are a prime partner for your business.

With our unrivalled competence in compressor unit solutions from a single source, Howden offers a comprehensive range of pre-designed KK&K turbo compressors up to 600,000 m³/h, with the flexibility to address the specific requirements for your application.

Our standardized units with modular design ensure low life cycle and investment costs and short delivery times. Metallurgical, chemical and petrochemical plants as well as refineries are amongst the most common applications for our compression solutions.

Steam Turbines

Whatever your need for a prime mover, Howden can provide you with versatile, reliable and proven industrial steam turbines. The world leader in steam turbine technology, with over 100 years of experience and continuous development, and a fleet of more than 20,000 installed turbines, we are a prime partner for your business.

Howden offers a comprehensive range of pre-designed steam turbines up to 12 MW. These innovative but economical machines have a simple modular design which facilitates optimisation of performance for the required application. For optimal configuration, we have different but fully compatible design series to draw upon, enabling us to match your needs as exactly as possible.

Of course we strictly adhere to the guidelines laid down in the quality standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Not only the steam turbines, but also associated field-proven hightech products are available from the KK&K range. These include generators, instrumentation and controls, as well as auxiliary and ancillary systems.
