For use in professional applications: High free air delivery in continuous operation

Wide range of different free air delivery rates: 260 – 680 l/min

Little space required: The ideal vertical unit with compact dimensions

Long service life, high degree of modularity: Tailored to meet your needs

The VERTICUS 5 series has been developed and built specifically to meet high performance requirements in continuous operation in professional applications.

The VERTICUS 5 breathing air compressors are available in versions for 225 and/or 330 bar as well as in a version for up to 420 bar.

The vertical design of the units mean that they have a very small footprint and thus take up relatively little space.

The high modularity of the VERTICUS 5 series means that the units can easily be adapted to provide the best possible solution to your requirements and wishes.

P 61 filter system

P 61 filter system
When used in conjunction with original BAUER filter cartridges, the P 61 filter system with additional oil and water separator and pressure retention check valve can be relied upon for breathing air treatment conforming to DIN EN 12021¹. A type-tested and sealed final pressure safety valve enables particularly high levels of operational safety to be achieved. 2400 m³ of air can be treated.

¹ If the units are maintained and installed correctly as described in the user manual and subject to the BAUER AERO-GUARD being used if CO2 concentration in the intake air exceeds prescribed standard values.

P 81 filter system
When used in conjunction with original BAUER filter cartridges, the P 81 filter system with additional oil and water separator and pressure retention check valve can be relied upon for breathing air treatment conforming to DIN EN 12021¹. A type-tested and sealed final pressure safety valve enables particularly high levels of operational safety to be achieved. 5,200 m³ of air can be treated.

¹ If the units are maintained and installed correctly as described in the user manual and subject to the BAUER AERO-GUARD being used if CO2 concentration in the intake air exceeds prescribed standard values.

Intermediate pressure gauge kit
Intermediate pressure gauge kit

Intermediate pressure gauge kit
The intermediate pressure gauges show the operating pressure of the individual compressor stages. This information about the pressure is used to check the corresponding stage valves (inlet and outlet) for leaks so that potential faults can be detected quickly. The intermediate pressure gauges are installed inside the compressor housing.

B-KOOL refrigeration dryer
In environments in which ambient temperatures are high in particular, the B-KOOL refrigeration dryer extends filter capacity almost beyond belief. Operators benefit from much lower filter cartridge usage and storage costs in addition to longer interruption-free operation. Read more

AERO-GUARD
AERO-GUARD

AERO-GUARD
Using the AERO-GUARD reduces the CO2 content of the breathing air to approximately one-third of the intake value. The constantly increasing levels of CO2 concentration in the air resulting from unfavourable environmental influences are making it more and more difficult for the operators of filling stations to be sure of achieving compliance with legally binding maximum limits for CO2. With AERO-GUARD the operator is always on the safe side! Read more

Depending on requirements, filling panels are supplied with filling hoses or lever filling valves with 4, 6 or 10 filling valves. A stainless steel design can be provided as an option.

Simple exhaust shaft
Simple exhaust shaft

Simple exhaust shaft
An exhaust shaft is used to discharge the heat generated during compression out of the installation room. The exhaust shaft also reduces noise levels inside the installation room.

Exhaust shaft with ventilation damper control
Exhaust shaft with ventilation damper control

Exhaust shaft with ventilation damper control
The exhaust shaft with ventilation damper control provides the means via which the exhaust air is discharged into the surrounding room or outdoors under controlled conditions and dependent on temperature. A temperature sensor measures the temperature in the room and controls the position of the ventilation dampers for optimised operation (only possible in conjunction with a Super-Silent housing).

Connection for external intake system

Connection for external intake system
When filling breathing air cylinders, the quality of the compressed air is dependent on the quality of the ambient air intake. Clean fresh air must be taken in from an external source in particular if there is a risk of exhaust gases (CO) and exhaust air from other units. A connection for an external suction line has been provided for this purpose.

40 l condensate collection system
40 l condensate collection system

40 l condensate collection system
This convenient system provides a central collection point for the condensate (oil and water mixture) produced during the compression process inside the compressor. The condensate tank features an integrated float switch which can be relied upon to monitor the level of condensate in the tank and provides protection against overfilling. A combined silencer and filter unit prevents pollution caused by noise or odour.
