BAUER Nitrox compressors – compressing nitrox safely!
Safety certified by the TÜV: Acceptance testing of BAUER NITROX compressors by the TÜV Süd
Nitrox optimised compressor: Compressor block optimised for increased oxygen content and temperature monitoring of all stages and in the final separator for your added safety
Whether open or sound-insulated, mobile or stationary – the BAUER Nitrox series of units contains the right model for almost every application. For your safety, all BAUER Nitrox compressors are fitted with temperature sensors after every compressor stage as well as in the final separator to monitor that the specified operating temperature is observed. All components and oils used are also designed for use with an increased oxygen content.
Extensive tests are required due to the high safety standards governing the compression of gases enriched with oxygen. All materials used in the unit that come into direct contact with the gas must demonstrate that they are harmless under the strictest TÜV criteria and defined test procedures. These tests ensure that the nitrox mixture generated by the oxygen membrane with a maximum oxygen content of 40% can be compressed safely in the downstream high-pressure compressor.
BAUER KOMPRESSOREN only uses 4-stage compressor blocks for the compression of nitrox. This ensures that the heat produced during the process of compression is distributed across all four stages, promoting effective cooling.
The star-shaped arrangement of the compressor stages optimises smooth running and increases efficiency. The free-standing cylinders are easy to access and maintain. Furthermore, they are ideally positioned in the cooling air flow.
For increased safety, the temperature is monitored by temperature sensors at each compressor stage and in the final separator. If the maximum permissible temperature specified by the TÜV is exceeded, the unit shuts down automatically and the system is ventilated.
