  • Reducing stations, shockproof air receivers and air dryers
  • Sauer naval compressors comply with all major shock proofing standards. Their low level of structure-borne noise makes them ideal for use on ASW (Anti-Submarine Warfare) vessels.
  • All units can be delivered as complete, ready-to-use systems with the dryer, control panel and other accessories mounted on a common frame. All equipments are fully tested and easy to install.
  • Also, Sauer’s naval compressors are designed to offer uncompromising reliability, toughness and minimal operating costs. Exceptionally long MTBM and MTBR intervals play an important part in the cost-effectiveness.
