- Luzi Valär, Vice President Research & Development at Burckhardt Compression AG

Significantly improved compressor efficiency due to ultra-lightweight and durable valve plate

The high-quality fiber composite material gives the valve plate reliable and durable properties under the most adverse pressure and temperature conditions.

With high strength and low weight, valve plate life and compressor efficiency are significantly improved.

  • Temperature resistant

  • Firm & pressure resistant

  • Lightweight

  • Precise contour; Minimal finishing

  • Cost-efficient already from medium series size onwards

CrossTEQ's thermoplastic fiber composites enable versatile mechanical, chemical and tribological features that we can specifically evoke for high-performance components using our x-NET Precision Molding process.
