Advantages of Sauer compressors

All compressors are based on proven technology and benefit from our vast expanse of experience in the field. Infact, we deliver thousands of commercial units each year and receive positive feedback, even from highly demanding customers such as the submarine operators.
Delivered as ready-to-use systems, every unit is endowed with dryer, control boxes and accessories which are mounted on a common frame. In addition to this all equipments are easy to install and fully tested.

A choice of full military, shockproof, standard naval or commercial versions in accordance with class standards such as LRoS or GL allows you to select the most economical solution, for your basic vessel design.

Added to this, designed as an alternative for dedicated point-of-use compressors, Sauer’s Centralised Air System can be used for a wide variety of functions, in such vessels. Consequently, it offers definite advantages with regards to reliability, logistics and maintenance costs, over the system’s operating life.

The optimal level of support needed for various naval fleets is assured by the complete logistical back-up and NATO codification.
