Water-cooled high-pressure compressors in the G-series (helium & argon) in the pressure range 90 – 230 bar – for continuous 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

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

Reduced noise level: Compared with air-cooled units

The water-cooled, gas-tight, high-pressure compressors in the G series are the modern, high-performance compressor option for helium, argon and other noble gases. Durable, low-maintenance, absolutely reliable and proven in continuous operation in industrial applications for many years.

Recirculation of blowby and lost gas from the automatic condensate drain into the intake buffer combined with efficient encapsulation of the safety valves effectively minimises gas losses.

Low speeds and optimised grading of the multi-stage compressors provide the basis for the very best compression ratios for the compression of noble gases.

In line with your individual needs and industrial requirements, BAUER KOMPRESSOREN can also provide you with tailor-made turnkey system solutions.

Compressor block
For compressor units with intake pressure, the BK 23 to BK 52 block series feature a pressure-tight 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
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.
