Sauer Compressors Adds To Lineup

By Jack Burke13 June 2019

The new Orkan high-pressure compressor series from Sauer Compressors will be available in various configurations and is designed for the compression of many gases and for a wide range of applications.

The air-cooled series comprises oil-lubricated piston compressors and gas compressors of up to 110 kW for final pressures of up to 500 barg. Booster solutions with inlet pressures of up to 16 barg are also covered. At ComVac 2019 during Hannover Messe, Sauer presented the first prototype. The new series will enter the market approximately within the first quarter of 2020.

The Orkan series is based on a versatile, modular system, the company said. Various designs are ready to cater for special requirements. There are hermetically gas-tight and explosion-proof versions for helium, natural gas and hydrogen. In the hermetically gas-tight compressors, Sauer uses a new type of magnet coupling for the first time. It not only guarantees absolute gas-tightness but is also extremely low-maintenance and operates with maximum reliability.

The new CubeCooler enables recooling temperatures that are more than 30 % lower than those of conventional cooler configurations. For a high cooling capacity like this, Sauer Compressors arranged the coolers radially around the combined fan and flywheel. This cooling concept has already proven itself in the Sauer medium-pressure series Breeze.

With its technical properties, the Orkan series ranges between Sauer’s Hurricane series and 6000 series. Thus, Sauer’s portfolio of high-pressure compressors of up to 500 barg now covers the entire range of 4 to 230 kW. The Orkan series is equipped with the new compressor control Sauer ecc 4.0 which stands for simple operation and a high degree of safety. Another advantage of the air-cooled compressors is the extremely compact and clear construction for this performance class.
