Engine development

In addition to their role in shipping like the starting of diesel engines, Sauer helium compressors also play an important role in developing new engines and testing them. They are widely used on engine test beds. Though Sauer gained familiarity for their role in shipping, they also play an important role in the development of natural gas engines and various other gas engines.

Research institutions and universities

The fact that universities as well as state and private research institutions perform extremely demanding work indicates that they rely on top-quality components, in order to achieve highly accurate results. Downtime and extended experimental periods reduce competitiveness and waste funds that have been allocated for research purposes. In the field of helium recovery and liquefaction, Sauer compressors can optimise the process, with a maximum leakage rate of just 0.1 mbar x l /s. Their economical design comes into its own, in ultrasound tests in wind tunnels or vehicle crash tests – the two applications which require high volumes in an extremely short period. Sauer compressors save time and reduce costs, making it possible to carry out more tests at shorter intervals.
