Ideal for use in standalone applications: Featuring a very low-maintenance diesel engine

Electronic compressor control (KAP-DAH): For reliable control of the most important unit parameters

Little space required: Thanks to compact horizontal design

Long service life, high degree of modularity: Tailored to meet your needs

With a low centre of gravity and robust, low-maintenance diesel drive, the horizontal compressors in the KAP-DAH series are able to meet the most exacting of requirements for reliable and autonomous continuous operation in remote locations.

All coolers, filters, valves and cables are made from rust-free materials.
Designed for the harshest of outdoor climates and absolutely reliable at high outdoor temperatures.

The unit has been designed without compromise, so ease of access for maintenance work comes as standard.

P 61 or P 81 filter system
When used in conjunction with original BAUER filter cartridges, the P 61 or P 81 filter system with additional oil and water separator and pressure retention check valve can be relied upon for breathing air treatment conforming to DIN EN 12021¹. A type-tested and sealed final pressure safety valve enables particularly high levels of operational safety to be achieved. 2400 m³ (P 61) or 5200 m³ (P 81) of air can be treated.

¹ If the units are maintained and installed correctly as described in the user manual and subject to the BAUER AERO-GUARD being used if CO2 concentration in the intake air exceeds prescribed standard values.

Compressor control (KAP-DAH)
The electronic control with additional monitoring electronics switches the compressor off automatically when the final pressure is reached in the system, measures operating hours and oil pressure, and displays the current operating status. The battery charge status can also be read off from the control box.

P 81 filter system
When used in conjunction with original BAUER filter cartridges, the P 81 filter system with additional oil and water separator and pressure retention check valve can be relied upon for breathing air treatment conforming to DIN EN 12021¹. A type-tested and sealed final pressure safety valve enables particularly high levels of operational safety to be achieved. 5,200 m³ of air can be treated.

¹ If the units are maintained and installed correctly as described in the user manual and subject to the BAUER AERO-GUARD being used if CO2 concentration in the intake air exceeds prescribed standard values.

Additional intermediate separator after the first stage
In the case of operation in locations where air humidity is high (tropical regions, for example), we recommend installing a separator downstream of the first compressor stage. This can extend the service life of the unit and reduce maintenance costs.

AERO-GUARD
AERO-GUARD

AERO-GUARD
Using the AERO-GUARD reduces the CO2 content of the breathing air to approximately one-third of the intake value. The constantly increasing levels of CO2 concentration in the air resulting from unfavourable environmental influences are making it more and more difficult for the operators of filling stations to be sure of achieving compliance with legally binding maximum limits for CO2. With AERO-GUARD the operator is always on the safe side! Read more
