Bauer’s new Verticus and Mini-Verticus systems have been developed as an all-new platform, offering unlimited interfaces for applications in the future
The compressors already incorporate connectivity to a smartphone or tablet, allowing operators to control and monitor the system remotely. The new online gas measurement system B-Detection Plus provides high-precision and, above all, safe monitoring of breathing air quality in compliance with DIN EN 12021:20141, using professional high-performance sensor systems and sophisticated self-check functions. B-Detection Plus is available as an integrated or standalone version.
The new Mini-Verticus and Verticus Series set the standards of the future for stationary high-pressure compressor systems. The series combines the quality and reliability of the preceding stationary compressor series with an all-new design, smartphone connectivity through the Bauer app, online air quality monitoring and outstanding ergonomic features.
Although compact, the new Mini-Verticus benefits particularly from the new design. Its identical housing now conceals more advanced engineering: the highest-end model now incorporates a more powerful compressor block, boosting its maximum free air delivery by over 20 per cent to an impressive 320 l/min. In addition, numerous accessory models from the larger Verticus series, such as the B-Control II control unit, are now also available. The system supports remote-control operation and control using the Bauer app.
The new Bauer app communicates with your compressor system using WiFi. It provides simple, direct remote access to functions of the high-performance B-Control Micro compressor control unit. The app transforms your smartphone into an at-a-glance monitoring device for the main system levels, including air quality and final pressure, as well as important maintenance information – a major bonus in convenience and safety! And the integrated calculation tool enables operators to convert units, calculate filter service life with and without B-Kool and determine filling time and condensate volumes. The app includes a direct link to Bauer’s YouTube channel with videos providing practical advice and assistance on a range of servicing topics including replacing filter cartridges or changing oil.
The online gas measurement system B-Detection monitors the quality of the breathing air produced. It is available in two versions: plus i, fully integrated into the compressor system, and the standalone plus s for wall mounting. Automatic, continuous and outstandingly reliable.
Compliance with the limit values of the DIN EN 12021:2014 Breathing Air Standard can be monitored at all times by checking the display of the B-Control Micro compressor control unit. The system measures the oxygen, CO and CO2 content of the air, with optional measurement of absolute humidity and residual oil (VOCs)1 in compliance with DIN EN 12021:2014 (Breathing Air Standard). When limit values are exceeded, the unit displays a visual warning and shuts down the system before contaminated air can pass into the cylinders being filled. Any infringements of limit values are logged by the B-Control Micro system control unit and can easily be exported as an Excel file using a standard SD card. In cases where limit values are briefly exceeded, an automatic flush valve (optional) discharges contaminated air to the outside without interrupting operation of the system. Measurement uses high-quality smart sensors with continuous self-check function, ensuring users can rely on the accuracy of the measurement results. An optional humidity membrane can be added to maximise sensor life.
