Cooling of valve heads reduces thermal load: For minimum wear

Installation even under the most difficult ambient conditions: Thanks to dedicated water cooling of the compressor block

Incredibly long-serving and reliable unit: With extended valve service life and low oil consumption

Reduced noise level: Compared with air-cooled units

BAUER I-series water-cooled high-pressure compressors are ideal for installation under the most difficult ambient conditions as well as for use in industrial applications.

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.

As a result, the multi-stage, industrial high-pressure compressors require very little maintenance and achieve long service lives. At the same time, they are quieter than comparable air-cooled compressors.

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.

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

Plate heat exchanger set
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
Heat exchanger set

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.
