Water-cooled high-pressure compressors in the GIB-SP-series in the pressure range 50 – 520 bar – for heavy-duty operation in industrial applications
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
Low compression temperatures and operating temperatures: thanks to a multi-stage compression process
Fully equipped: with soft starting and B-CONTROL II
The combination of the screw compressor and high-pressure booster enables a high level of free air delivery with compact dimensions. The compression process involves 3 respectively 5 stages, keeping compression temperatures to a minimum.
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, these 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 and designed specifically for continuous use in industrial applications (heavy-duty use).

Screw booster concept
The BAUER GIB-SP-series forms a compact, structural unit and comprises a combination of a screw compressor and a high-pressure booster. The continuous shaft allows the motor to operate the V-belt driven screw compressor and the direct-coupled booster at the same time. Read more
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.
Customer-specific paint finishes in other colours or special composition paints (conforming to corrosivity category C5M, for example) are available alongside the standard BAUER paint finishes.
At and above motor power ratings of 75 kW and in conjunction with the B-CONTROL, 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
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.
