KAP-H – Resilient breathing air compressors. Built to meet the most exacting requirements on land and at sea

BAUER KAP-H breathing air compressor
BAUER KAP-H breathing air compressor

Ideal for use in professional applications: High free air delivery in continuous operation

Perfect for demanding requirements at sea: Intercoolers and aftercoolers made from rust-free stainless steel. For high corrosion resistance

Fully automatic compressor control: B-CONTROL MICRO

Little space required: Thanks to compact horizontal design

Thanks to a low centre of gravity and durable block design, the compressors in the KAP-H series can be relied upon to operate safely even at very oblique angles.

They are thus the ideal choice for the challenging operating conditions encountered in civil and military shipping or in in-vehicle applications.

The installed compressor blocks in the IK 15.1/150/180 series have been designed for the most demanding professional applications and dimensioned for a service life in excess of 30,000 operating hours.

With their outstanding surface hardness, plasma-nitrided and plateau-honed cylinders are able to achieve extremely long service lives combined with low energy consumption and reliable oil lubrication of cylinder surfaces.

Furthermore, wear-resistant piston rings in the final stage minimize running costs. The compressor block is both efficient and reliable. Stainless steel cooling ribs on the pipe cooler provide the basis for particularly efficient cooling and thus very long service life.

Additional intermediate separator downstream of the first stage
Additional intermediate separator downstream of the first stage

Additional intermediate separator after the first stage
In the case of operation in locations where air humidity is high (tropical regions, for example), we recommend installing a separator downstream of the first compressor stage. This can extend the service life of the unit and reduce maintenance costs.

Intermediate pressure gauge kit
Intermediate pressure gauge kit

Intermediate pressure gauge kit
The intermediate pressure gauges show the operating pressure of the individual compressor stages. This information about the pressure is used to check the corresponding stage valves (inlet and outlet) for leaks so that potential faults can be detected quickly. The intermediate pressure gauges are installed inside the compressor housing.

B-KOOL refrigeration dryer
In environments in which ambient temperatures are high in particular, the B-KOOL refrigeration dryer extends filter capacity almost beyond belief. Operators benefit from much lower filter cartridge usage and storage costs in addition to longer interruption-free operation. Read more

AERO-GUARD
AERO-GUARD

AERO-GUARD
Using the AERO-GUARD reduces the CO2 content of the breathing air to approximately one-third of the intake value. The constantly increasing levels of CO2 concentration in the air resulting from unfavourable environmental influences are making it more and more difficult for the operators of filling stations to be sure of achieving compliance with legally binding maximum limits for CO2. With AERO-GUARD the operator is always on the safe side! Read more

40 l condensate collection system

40 l condensate collection system
This convenient system provides a central collection point for the condensate (oil and water mixture) produced during the compression process inside the compressor. The condensate tank features an integrated float switch which can be relied upon to monitor the level of condensate in the tank and provides protection against overfilling. A combined silencer and filter unit prevents pollution caused by noise or odour.
