Ultra-compact dimensions: For installation wherever space is at a premium

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

Fully automatic compressor control: B-CONTROL MICRO

Low-vibration running: Can be installed without a foundation

Very easy to maintain: The tension of the V-belt does not have to be adjusted

Can be delivered in specific helium configuration: For best possible efficiency rates

Optimised for helium and other noble gases, VERTICUS 5 are the gas-tight and helium-tight classics in the successful BAUER G-series.

Recirculation of blowby and lost gas from the automatic condensate drain into the intake buffer combined with efficient encapsulation of the safety valves effectively minimises gas losses.

Low speeds and optimised grading of the compressors provide the basis for the very best compression ratios for the compression of noble gases.

Furthermore, particularly compact dimensions make installation and commissioning quick, efficient and inexpensive.

Other important benefits of this compressor series are in evidence wherever space is at a premium: Along with excellent accessibility, the VERTICUS impresses by being so very easy to maintain. Self-tensioning V-belts and excellent accessibility effectively minimise maintenance and downtime costs.

P 81 filter system
The units in the VERTICUS 5 series can be supplied with the P 81 treatment system integrated as an option. This system doubles the intervals for changing cartridges compared with the P 61 treatment system and meets the requirements of more far-reaching treatment standards.

B-SECURUS filter monitoring system
B-SECURUS filter monitoring system

B-SECURUS filter monitoring system
The B-SECURUS filter monitoring system monitors the saturation of the filter cartridge with moisture. Best possible use can be made of the cartridge at a guaranteed pressure dew-point of -20°C. Information is displayed via the B-CONTROL control display.

Intermediate pressure gauges
Intermediate pressure gauges

Intermediate pressure gauges
Analogue pressure gauges mounted on the compressor unit in a suitable location. They make it easy to check, diagnose and maintain the unit.
