The BAUER B-NITROX system – Nitrox with integrated and safety certified by the TÜV

VERTICUS-OX of the B-NITROX membran system
VERTICUS-OX of the B-NITROX membran system

Safety certified by the TÜV: Acceptance testing of BAUER NITROX compressors by the TÜV Süd

Nitrox optimised compressor: Compressor block optimised for high oxygen content and temperature monitoring of all stages for your safety

ETC instead of activated carbon filter: Reliable removal of carbons to protect the membrane

Oxygen content independent of ambient temperature: Constant cooling of the membrane to ensure optimum efficiency at all times

B-NITROX is BAUER's nitrox membrane system. This compressor system enriches breathing air with an increased oxygen content of up 40%.

With B-NITROX, BAUER is the only manufacturer in the world to offer a complete nitrox system certified by the TÜV. True to BAUER's uncompromising safety philosophy, all components have been perfectly matched.

The B-NITROX unit has been designed for reliable nitrox supply to stationary, professional diving centres, safari boats, live-aboards, yachts and cruise liners as well as for commercial diving missions.

The legislator has issued clear regulations, as the compression of gases requires a specific degree of tested safety.

This is an important consideration with regard to product liability in the event of accidents (in particular for tour operators and hotels who run diving centres on their sites).

LOW PRESSURE MODULE (screw compressor)
LOW PRESSURE MODULE (screw compressor)

1 – LOW PRESSURE MODULE
The LOW PRESSURE MODULE is an upstream screw compressor. Its free air delivery is perfectly matched to the HIGH PRESSURE MODULE. Read more

OX MODULE (membrane)
OX MODULE (membrane)

3 – OX MODULE
The oxygen membrane separates N2 out of the breathing air, thereby increasing the oxygen content. The oxygen content in the breathing air can be freely regulated between 21% and 40% (lower and upper limit values). Read more

HIGH PRESSURE MODULE (high-pressure compressor suitable for nitrox)

4 – HIGH PRESSURE MODULE
The high-pressure compressor, which is optimised for compression up to an oxygen content of 40%, can be relied upon for cost-effective and safe operation thanks to special manufacturing procedures that are followed as standard by BAUER KOMPRESSOREN. Read more

P 61 filter system
P 61 filter system

P 61 Purification system
When used in conjunction with original BAUER filter cartridges, the P 61 purification system with additional oil and water separator and pressure retention check valve can be relied upon for breathing air treatment conforming to DIN EN 12021:2014¹. A type-tested and sealed final pressure safety valve enables particularly high levels of operational safety to be achieved. 2400 m³ of air can be treated.

¹ If the units are maintained and installed correctly as described in the user manual and subject to the BAUER AERO-GUARD being used if CO2 concentration in the intake air exceeds prescribed standard values.

Filling device 4 × 200 bar Nitrox

Filling device 4 × 200 bar Nitrox
The filling device consists of four flexible UNIMAM high-pressure filling hoses and one filling valve each for 200 bar according to DIN EN 144-3. The integrated final pressure gauge makes it easy to read off the final pressure on the high-pressure compressor.

P 81 filter system
P 81 filter system

P 81 Purification system
When used in conjunction with original BAUER filter cartridges, the P 81 filter system with additional oil and water separator and pressure retention check valve can be relied upon for breathing air treatment conforming to DIN EN 12021:2014¹. A type-tested and sealed final pressure safety valve enables particularly high levels of operational safety to be achieved. 5,200 m³ of air can be treated.

¹ If the units are maintained and installed correctly as described in the user manual and subject to the BAUER AERO-GUARD being used if CO2 concentration in the intake air exceeds prescribed standard values.

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.

60 l condensate collection system
60 l condensate collection system

60 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.

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

Simple exhaust shaft
Simple exhaust shaft

Simple exhaust shaft
An exhaust shaft is used to discharge the heat generated during compression out of the installation room. The exhaust shaft also reduces noise levels inside the installation room.

B-SAFE 300-OX safe filling module
B-SAFE 300-OX safe filling module

B-SAFE 300-OX
Ensures the uncompromising safety of persons and compressor rooms when filling pressure cylinders. As a result of filling accidents arising from exploding cylinders, explosion protection is already standard or is prescribed in many countries.
B-SAFE replaces costly protective measures in compressor rooms and provides operators with a high level of legal security.
