Gas Compression

Compressed Air for the Process Gas Industry

Compressed Air for the Process Gas Industry

Wittig is the first choice for coke oven and process gas processing industries - where reliability, safety, and efficiency are critical requirements. For many decades, Wittig has and continues to design and manufacture an impressive range of high performance, long-lasting and reliable vacuum pumps and compressors, for both gas and air applications.

Gas Compression Capabilities 

Wittig process gas compressors are suitable for a range of different gases including:



  Toxic gases


Wittig process gas compressors for a diverse range of gases

Industry Leading Record for Safety & Reliability

The compression of butadiene, hydrogen, and highly toxic or flammable gases is safe and reliable using Wittig gas compressors. We manufacture customer specific customised gas compression systems for the process gas industry. Designed specifically for the chosen task in mind, we call upon our long and extensive experience to meet customer requirements for a diverse range of applications. 

The production of steel in blast furnaces results in a considerable amount of by-product gas (blast furnace gas, coke oven gas, basic oxygen furnace gas, etc.) that can be used as fuel to produce power or steam. These gases can then be recovered, filtered, and burned in adapted gas turbines so that a considerable amount of the energy used for the blast furnace blower can be recovered to generate electrical power. Wittig compressors have long been a safe and reliable part of this process.

ATEX Certified


When handling gas compression machinery, exacting specifications must be met. The technology must be thoroughly gas-tight as toxic or even flammable gases may be part of the process. All safety regulations and certifications must be compiled with to ensure customer safety and to safeguard your investment. All of our gas and air compressor equipment meets ATEX regulations and is certified for use. 

Wittig RO Compressors

Wittig RO compressors are specifically configured to handle toxic process gases. The specialised sealing systems used in our RO compressors meet the specific requirements of our customers for these demanding gas compressor applications.
