G series: VERTICUS 5 – The turnkey compressors for helium, argon and other noble gases
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.
All the information you need at your fingertips!
The VERTICUS 5 in special design for helium is characterised by minimum gas losses. Read more
With their outstanding surface hardness, plasma-nitrided and plateau-honed cylinders are able to achieve extremely long service lives combined with low energy consumption and reliable oil lubrication of cylinder surfaces. Read more
Super-Silent cladding reduces the noise level of the compressor unit and enables an exhaust shaft to be used. For units in the VERTICUS 5 series, Super-Silent sound insulation can be retrofitted on request.
P 61 filter system
The units in the MINI-VERTICUS III and VERTICUS 5 series can be supplied with the P 61 treatment system integrated as an option. Clean air and gas qualities meeting the requirements of ISO 8573-1 (among others) can be achieved.
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
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
Analogue pressure gauges mounted on the compressor unit in a suitable location. They make it easy to check, diagnose and maintain the unit.
Energy efficiency class IE3
On request, BAUER compressor units can be fitted ex works with energy-saving three-phase motors meeting the requirements of energy efficiency class IE3. As of 7.5 kW engine rating those motors are already standard scope of supply.
