Fully automatic compressor control: B-CONTROL II

Optimum free air delivery rates for your application: For the compression of air, nitrogen, helium and argon

Compressor blocks in the BK 23 – BK 52 series: For uniform absorption of the internal gas forces

Low installation and maintenance costs: An important benefit of air-cooled systems

Powerful air cooling system: For compressor units with drive power ratings up to 110 kW

The air-cooled booster compressors in the GIB series by BAUER KOMPRESSOREN are characterised by their crankcase, which is pressure-resistant up to 16 bar.

A powerful air cooling system with generously dimensioned coolers combined with cylinders with extensive ribbing can be relied upon for best possible cooling of each individual compressor stage.

As cost-effective and durable system solutions for heavy-duty applications, these multi-stage boosters offer a wide and varied range of options: as a booster compressor of air from a compressed air supply system, as a nitrogen compressor of inert gases from generators or storage bundles, or as gas compressors for the compression of methane from pipelines or biogas directly from the treatment system.

In line with your individual needs and industrial requirements, BAUER KOMPRESSOREN can also provide you with tailor-made turnkey system solutions.

For compressor units with intake pressure, the BK 23 to BK 52 block series feature a pressure-tight crankcase for uniform absorption of the internal gas forces. Read more

Air cooling
Air cooling

Air cooling
Air cooling is part of external cooling. It directly discharges the compressor heat from all locations where heat is critical.
Air-cooled compressors are ideal for mobile or standalone applications. Thanks to the effective dimensioning of air cooling equipment, BAUER KOMPRESSOREN is able to offer air-cooled compressor units with drive power ratings up to 110 kW in proven standard design format.

Configuration
The air-cooled series is characterised by its crankcase, which is pressure-resistant up to 16 bar. This makes compression to the required final pressure possible without losses. Read more

Special colours
Special colours

Colour range
Customer-specific paint finishes in other colours or special composition paints (conforming to corrosivity category C5M, for example) are available alongside the standard BAUER paint finishes.

Explosion protection design

Explosion protection conforming to ATEX guidelines
Compressor units by BAUER KOMPRESSOREN can be supplied with explosion protection and conforming to ATEX directives.

Start-up configuration
Start-up configuration

Start-up configuration
At and above motor power ratings of 75 kW and in conjunction with the B-CONTROL II, a soft starter to protect the unit during starting and effectively reduce starting current is used as standard. The technical alternative is soft staring with a frequency inverter. Read more

Monitoring of pressure and temperature
This add-on module for the B-CONTROL II control monitors the pressures and temperatures of all compressor stages. Read more

Intake pressure reduction
Intake pressure reduction

Intake pressure reduction
Intake pressure reduction ensures that the compressor takes in the gas at the appropriate pressure. Depending on the prevailing gas pressure and the intake pressure required, 1-stage or 2-stage intake pressure reducers are used. Integrated safety valves and pressure monitoring provide an effective means of ensuring that the permissible intake pressure is not exceeded or undershot.

Intake buffer vessel
Intake buffer vessel

Intake buffer vessel
To effectively prevent pulsations in the intake area, an intake buffer vessel is installed between the compressor and the upstream gas supply networks and/or control equipment. Read more
