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

Robust unit construction: Thanks to fully proven BAUER system components

Standalone installation even under the most difficult ambient conditions: With effective water cooling of the compressor block and dedicated heat dissipation

As cost-effective and durable system solutions for heavy-duty applications, the water-cooled, high-pressure boosters in the GIB series from BAUER KOMPRESSOREN support a wide and varied range of options for post-compression.

These multi-stage boosters combine high delivery rates at final pressures up to max. 420 bar with low power consumption.

Ideally matches pressure ratios of the individual compressor stages significantly reduce process costs for the post-compression of air, nitrogen, helium, argon and other noble gases.

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

Water cooling (heat exchanger)
Water cooling (heat exchanger)

Water cooling
By using targeted water cooling between the interstage and afterstage coolers and valve heads, the system enables the majority of the heat produced to be absorbed by the cooling water.
This maintenance-friendly cooling concept is suitable in particular for difficult spatial and ambient conditions where it would not be possible to use an air-cooled compressor.

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

Intake pressure reduction
Intake pressure reduction

Intake pressure reduction
Intake pressure reduction ensures that the compressor takes in the gas at the appropriate pressure. 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

Plate heat exchanger set

Plate heat exchanger set
The plate heat exchanger set can be used to build a dedicated enclosed compressor cooling water circuit. In open cooling systems with stream water or sea water or open cooling towers, this is essential in order to operate the compressor with cooling water of suitable quality.

Heat exchanger set
The set consists of an air-to-water heat exchanger which makes it possible to operate water-cooled compressor units independently of a water supply.

1 Free air delivery according to ISO 1217, power consumption at maximum final pressure under certain conditions. Other ambient conditions result in different performance data. Direct-coupled units: Values valid for 50 Hz.
2 Shut-down pressure (sensor setting).
3 Suitable for helium under certain conditions. Please check with BAUER. Certain restrictions must be considered with regard to input and final pressure.
4 Max. safety valve pressure setting = max. operating pressure. Reduced switch-off pressure.

CORRECTION FACTOR FOR FREE AIR DELIVERY

Helium free air delivery = air free air delivery × 0.8

CORRECTION FACTOR FOR POWER CONSUMPTION

Helium power consumption = air power consumption × 1.06
