International shipping with its stringent requirements for quality and reliability is Sauer’s traditional area of activity.
Our starting and working air compressors have proven their reliability in this demanding market. Thanks to ongoing development, they are among the most modern and most economic compressors in the world.
In particular, the 3-stage air-cooled starting air compressors provide a significant contribution to the modern shipping concept compared with the traditional 2-stage water-cooled compressors. With these products, Sauer has become one of the leading suppliers of compressors for shipping and offshore technology.
Our quality sets the standard throughout the world.
Today, the principle of air cooling is an international shipbuilding standard concerning starting air compressors of less than 50 scfm. Back in the 50s, Sauer had already started the development of air-cooled compressors in this capacity range as an alternative to water-cooled units which are in general high maintenance and more prone to failure. Today, Sauer’s 2-stage air-cooled starting air compressors are among the most modern and low maintenance compressors available worldwide. More than a thousand of these dependable compressors are delivered to our customers each year.
General advantages include:
Today the 3-stage air-cooled compressors have established themselves as a benchmark for modern and cost effective starting-air compressors. By the partition of the total compression into 3 stages and 3 cylinders the general advantages of air-cooled compressors could also be used for compressor capacities above 50 scfm.
Less temperature due to lower stage pressure ratio!
Less maintenance cost due to longer maintenance intervals!
Less installation cost due to no cooling water system!
