Fully automatic compressor control: B-CONTROL II

Optimum free air delivery rates for your application: For the compression of air, nitrogen, helium and argon

Compressor blocks in the BK 23 – BK 52 series: For uniform absorption of the internal gas forces

Robust unit construction: Thanks to fully proven BAUER system components

Standalone installation even under the most difficult ambient conditions: With effective water cooling of the compressor block and dedicated heat dissipation

As cost-effective and durable system solutions for heavy-duty applications, the water-cooled medium-pressure boosters in the GIB series by BAUER KOMPRESSOREN support a wide and varied range of options for post-compression.

The multi-stage boosters can be used in a variety of different ways: as a booster compressor of air from a compressed air supply system, as a nitrogen compressor of inert gases from generators or storage bundles, or as a gas compressor for the compression of methane from pipelines or biogas directly from the treatment system.

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.

Special colours
Special colours

Colour range
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.

Explosion protection design

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

Monitoring of pressure and temperature
This add-on module for the B-CONTROL II control monitors the pressures and temperatures of all compressor stages. Read more

Intake pressure reduction
Intake pressure reduction

Intake pressure reduction
Intake pressure reduction ensures that the compressor takes in the gas at the appropriate pressure. Integrated safety valves and pressure monitoring provide an effective means of ensuring that the permissible intake pressure is not exceeded or undershot.

Intake buffer vessel
Intake buffer vessel

Intake buffer vessel
To effectively prevent pulsations in the intake area, an intake buffer vessel is installed between the compressor and the upstream gas supply networks and/or control equipment. Read more

1 Free air delivery according to ISO 1217
2 Power consumption at maximum final pressure
3 Not suitable for helium
4 Not suitable for argon

Noble gases are subject to certain restrictions where input and final pressure are concerned.

Correction factor for free air delivery:
Helium delivery = Air delivery × 0.8
Argon delivery   = Air delivery × 0.95

Correction factor for power consumption:
Helium power consumption = Air power consumption × 1.06
Argon power consumption   = Air power consumption × 1.12
