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

Compact dimensions: For installation wherever space is at a premium

Ergonomic design: optimum accessibility and operation

B-DRAIN: The new automatic condensate drain is quieter and saves energy

Very easy to maintain: The tension of the V-belt does not have to be adjusted

The new generation of stationary compressors from the VERTICUS series once again demonstrates BAUER’s leading-edge technological status.

Optimised for helium and other noble gases, MINI-VERTICUS and VERTICUS are the gas-tight and helium-tight classics in the successful BAUER G-series.

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.

The advanced B-CONTROL MICRO is more powerful and ready to communicate with the B-APP for remotely controlling and monitoring the compressor.

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 compressors provide the basis for the very best compression ratios for the compression of noble gases.

B-DRAIN automatic condensate drain
B-DRAIN automatic condensate drain

B-DRAIN automatic condensate drain
The automatic condensate drain automatically removes the condensate that forms during compression (water/oil mixture) from the intermediate separators and the final separator and collects it in a condensate vessel. Read more

AIR COOLING
AIR COOLING

AIR COOLING
Compressors in the MINI-VERTICUS and VERTICUS series are cooled directly using ambient air. The heat they generate is discharged efficiently and effectively. Read more

Drive
Drive

Drive
A low-maintenance, self-tensioning V-belt drive is used for power transmission in the MINI-VERTICUS & VERTICUS series. The integration of a motor rocker means that the tension of the V-belt does not need to be adjusted. The compressor units are fitted ex works with energy-saving three-phase motors which meet the requirements of energy efficiency class IE3.

Super-Silent cladding
Super-Silent cladding

Super Silent version
Super Silent housing reduces the noise level of the compressor unit and enables an exhaust shaft to be used. For units in the MINI-VERTICUS & VERTICUS series, Super-Silent sound insulation can be retrofitted on request.

Temperature Sensor
Temperature Sensor

Monitoring the intermediate pressures and intermediate stage temperatures
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.

B-APP
B-APP

B-APP
B-APP allows users to remotely control and monitor compressors with the new B-CONTROL MICRO. B-APP also offers additional features such as product-specific news, videos, an integrated dealer search function and calculation tools. Available in the AppStore (iOS) and on GooglePlay (Android).

P 61 Purification system
The units in the MINI-VERTICUS & VERTICUS series can be supplied with the P 61 purification system integrated as an option. Clean air and gas qualities meeting the requirements of ISO 8573-1 (among others) can be achieved.

P 81 filter system
P 81 filter system

P 81 Purification system
The units in the MINI-VERTICUS & VERTICUS series can be supplied with the P 81 purification system integrated as an option. This system doubles the intervals for changing cartridges compared with the P 61 purification system and meets the requirements of more far-reaching treatment standards.

Particulate filter
Particulate filter

Particulate filter
An integrated particulate filter is offered as an option in conjunction with the P61 and P81 purification systems, to remove particulates safely in compliance with industrial requirements under ISO 8573 class 2.

Intermediate pressure gauges
Intermediate pressure gauges

Intermediate pressure gauges
Analogue pressure gauges mounted on the compressor unit in a suitable location. They make it easy to check, diagnose and maintain the unit.

Intake pressure reduction
Intake pressure reduction

Intake pressure reduction
IIntake pressure reduction ensures that the compressor takes in the gas at the appropriate pressure. The level of intake pressure reduction is adjusted according to prevailing gas pressure and required intake pressure. Integrated safety valves and pressure monitoring effectively ensure that intake pressure does not fall below or above the permissible level.

Exhaust shaft
