TÜV certification for operation with oxygen content of up to 40%

Temperature monitoring of all stages and in the final separator

Now significantly quieter: thanks to the new anti-vibration frame and noise-optimised Super Silent housing

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

The MINI-VERTICUS and VERTICUS series has been developed and built specifically to meet high performance requirements in continuous operation in professional applications.

The new MINI-VERTICUS and VERTICUS combine the legendary BAUER compressor blocks with improved components and ultra-modern design! During the redesign, the focus was on ergonomics, making operation as easy as possible, reducing noise and boosting efficiency.
All control elements that are important for everyday operation are ergonomically arranged and easily accessible from the front. A new condensate vessel integrated into the housing with 40 % more capacity. The compressor control monitors the fill level and informs the operator in good time if the condensate needs to be emptied.

The nitrox compressors are available for the compression of nitrox with an oxygen content of up to 40% and for a maximum operating pressure of 225 bar.

Motor rocker
The integration of a motor rocker means that the tension of the V-belt no longer has to be adjusted.

Connection for external intake system
Connection for external intake system

Connection for external intake system
When filling breathing air cylinders, the quality of the compressed air is dependent on the quality of the ambient air intake. Clean fresh air must be taken in from an external source in particular if there is a risk of exhaust gases (CO) and exhaust air from other units. A connection for an external suction line has been provided for this purpose.

Super-Silent version

Integrated gas measurement system B-DETECTION PLUS i

Integrated gas measurement system B-DETECTION PLUS i
As an option, the B-DETECTION PLUS i gas measurement system can be integrated into the compressor. This permits the monitoring of all gases required by DIN EN 12021:2014. Thanks to the option for discharge to the outside in the event of short-term contamination and the shut-down of the compressor in the event of extended overruns of the limit values, observance of DIN EN 12021:2014 can be ensured at all times1.

1 Measurement of humidity and total oil value (VOC) as option. Total oil measurement based only on volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Sensor calibration based on isobutene.

Monitoring the intermediate pressures
Monitoring the intermediate pressures

Monitoring the intermediate pressures
This monitoring system is recommended for continuous operation and fully automated operation, as well as for compressor units that do not receive regular attention from specialist personnel. Monitoring tracks the minimum value of stage 1 (intermediate pressure only) and the maximum value of all compressor stages. The compressor unit shuts off if the values monitored fall below or exceed the permissible limit values. The actual value is displayed by the B-CONTROL II compressor control unit.

Oil level monitoring
Oil level monitoring

Oil level monitoring
Optional oil level monitoring system for safely switching off the compressor unit when the oil level is low.
If the oil level reaches the minimum mark, this is displayed on the control and the compressor is switched off automatically for safety reasons. This option is particularly recommended for compressor units in continuous operation.

Particulate filter
Particulate filter

Particulate filter
In combination with the P41, P61 or P81 purification systems, an optional integrated particulate filter is available for effective protection against fine dust and other solid particles. This permits the reliable removal of particles in accordance with ISO 8573 class 2.

Intermediate pressure gauge kit
Intermediate pressure gauge kit

Intermediate pressure gauge kit
The intermediate pressure gauges show the operating pressure of the individual compressor stages. This information about the pressure is used to check the corresponding stage valves (inlet and outlet) for leaks so that potential faults can be detected quickly. The intermediate pressure gauges are installed inside the compressor housing.

First stage separator
First stage separator

First stage separator
The installation of a separator after the first compressor stage is recommended for units operating in conditions where the moisture content of the ambient air is high (in tropical regions and for the effective compression of gases with a high moisture content. Read more

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

60 l condensate collection system

60 l condensate collection system
This convenient system provides a central collection point for the condensate (oil and water mixture) produced during the compression process inside the compressor. The condensate tank features an integrated float switch which can be relied upon to monitor the level of condensate in the tank and provides protection against overfilling. A combined silencer and filter unit prevents pollution caused by noise or odour.
