    BAUER, Quality. Our DNA 


  • PORTABLES: Junior and Oceanus
    Small, lightweight, and portable line of high pressure breathing air compressor systems designed for use anywhere, anytime....

  • Bauer offers an entire line of lightweight, yet robust, portable high pressure breathing air compressor packages. We can support your needs with a modest electric driven unit on up to an integrated system built for fixed installation on your yacht. Each one of the compressors begins with either a Junior or Oceanus BAUER 3-stage high-pressure compressor. We couple the compressor to a BAUER high pressure breathing air purification system, assuring you receive the highest quality of high pressure breathing air available. You select the compressor drive which best suits your specific needs, electric, gasoline, or diesel! Manual controls are the standard scope of supply, however, if you need total automation, no worries, our Yachting package comes standard with an air switch which will turn the compressor on and off based on your demand. The Yachting package also includes an automatic condensate drain system which will automatically drain the interstage and final separator, so you do not have to remember to do so! With over 70 plus years of experience and a global network of BAUER branch offices to handle your parts and service needs give us a call. We would be happy to discuss your application.

  • BAUER Legacy
    The new LEGACY Series built in the rugged and proven VERTECON frame offers “Back To Basics Simplicity” while still incorporating PLC Control!...

  • In these times of financial uncertainty, look to the solution providers at BAUER to satisfy your needs. BAUER is the only manufacturer that continually reinvests in itself to offer you the latest in high-pressure compressor technology. Why purchase a fancy new cabinet with old technology enclosed within, old is still old. When shopping for your next compressor, ask your intended supplier to provide a copy of their service interval charts. The LEGACY units are built on the popular and serviceable VERTECON platform and are not stripped down units. Rather they are built with BAUER’s most popular options and upgrades!  LEGACY units are built-in quantity utilizing proven "work cell" manufacturing techniques for "off the shelf", in-stock delivery. This quantity build coupled with the uniform LEGACY platform enables us to capture economies of scale which in turn allows us to leverage internal resources and supply chain management. This translates into a price structure that offers substantial savings above and beyond our normal discount for our valued distributors.

    An economical design featuring the latest BAUER technological enhancements and unsurpassed maintenance accessibility is incorporated within the simplistic platform....

  • BAUER’s VERTECON series of high pressure breathing air compressor systems have been an industry leader for many years. The series now features an integral base that eliminates the guesswork of product placement, ensuring the system has been installed correctly for system ventilation and maintenance accessibility. With the advent of the integral base, the compressor package also can have a sound attenuated enclosure optionally installed at a later date. A refreshed HMI operations panel and electrical control system allow you to tailor the system to your specific requirements. When simple is what you want, look to BAUER.

    Step up to the BAUER VERTICUS®. The updated sound attenuated cabinet is equipped with a unique, aesthetically pleasing horizontal hinge and gas shock supported operations panel, assuring direct and easy access to the drive belts....

  • The days of “Breadbox” designed compressor packages are over! Vertically hinged and lift-off side maintenance access doors incorporating fast pin technology make removal of the doors a snap – no hand tools are required! The rear panel incorporates integral handles and a tabbed lift-off design. The front vertically hinged access door is affixed with a hex keyed latch to eliminate the accidental opening of the door while the system is operating. Sound attenuation has been incorporated on every possible panel to provide a nice and quiet operating level of approximately 72 dB (within one meter). One package size accommodates BAUER high-pressure air-cooled compressors from 5 to 20 Hp motors. Our new, larger, 7” HMI enhances monitoring of system functions.
