Medium and High-pressure compressors are used in a wide variety of metallurgical applications, which encompass the entire range of processes for producing and using metals, metalloids and non-metals. Wherever they happen to be used, Sauer compressors do their job reliably and efficiently. This, combined with their particularly long operating lives even under extreme environmental conditions, makes them more or less indispensable within the field of metallurgy. Indeed, it would not be possible to use many processes were it not for Sauer compressors!

Producing and forming steel

Although the production of steel was for a long time the pillar of heavy industry, it is now in the hands of a few major producers based throughout the world. Medium and high-pressure compressors for air and gases play an essential role at steelworks. Indeed, they are used not only to produce the steel itself and alter the carbon content in the blast furnace but also to press the steel into slabs and subsequently treat them. Often essential components within the overall system, the compressors themselves must be produced to the highest quality standards and durable enough to withstand the extreme conditions of temperature and dust levels.
