HOERBIGER - your partner for refinery and petrochemical applications

Leading expertise for constantly changing requirements. Refineries, petrochemical and chemical plants use compressors to pressurize gas at high temperatures for a number of chemical reactions. In these industries, the largest and highest performing reciprocating compressors are used in order to adequately pressurize the process gas. Thereby plant availability, reliability of machinery, profitability and safety are of great importance.

With his groundbreaking invention of the low-mass, frictionless steel plate valve in 1895, Hanns Hörbiger of Austria set a landmark in compression technology history, opening up totally new opportunities for the industry.

HOERBIGER has maintained this innovative strength throughout its history. Even over a century later, intensive research and development, meticulous engineering and design, the use of high-quality proprietary materials along with cutting-edge manufacturing technologies and stringent quality management continue to form the basis of our products.

HOERBIGER uses this specialized expertise together with standardized quality procedures for order processing to develop engineered solutions for both standard applications and special customer requirements.
