Research And Development

MANY FIRMS AND INSTITUTIONS use Sauer compressors in a variety of areas, while conducting research and development. Regardless of whether sensitive gases are in use, modern materials are being tested or complex processes play an important role, Sauer compressors are sound choices for any application since, they have been operating without problems for many decades. Customers value our understanding of industrial applications and our ability to come up with exactly the right type of compressor, to suit their requirements, for example: the majority of universities rely on Sauer compressors, with regards to helium recovery.

ELGI Sauer customers benefit from the following advantages

  • Latest compressors, control systems, compressed-air treatment systems and accessories
  • Optimum customer services right from initial enquiry and extending throughout the product’s life.
  • 100% compressor check at final pressure including 3.1 inspection certificate
  • Long operating life with guaranteed availability of replacement parts (minimum 25 years)
  • Turn-key solutions produced in keeping with customers’ specifications
  • Great reliability, even during intermittent operation
  • Optimum customer and compressor care concepts

Engine development

Many customers are familiar with Sauer compressors through their role in shipping like the starting of diesel engines among others. However, many people do not realise that Sauer compressors also play an important role in testing these engines and developing new ones. They are therefore widely used on engine test beds. Furthermore, Sauer compressors can play a role in the development of gas engines such as natural-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.
