Mini-Verticus & Verticus

SKU: I Series: Mini-Verticus & Verticus

The new generation of stationary compressors from the VERTICUS series once again demonstrates BAUER’s leading-edge technological status.

The new MINI-VERTICUS and VERTICUS combine the legendary BAUER compressor blocks with improved components and ultra-modern design! During the redesign, the focus was on ergonomics, making operation as easy as possible, reducing noise and boosting efficiency.

All control elements that are important for everyday operation are ergonomically arranged and easily accessible from the front.

A new condensate vessel integrated into the housing with 40 % more capacity. The compressor control monitors the fill level and informs the operator in good time if the condensate needs to be emptied.

The advanced B-CONTROL MICRO is more powerful and ready to communicate with the B-APP for remotely controlling and monitoring the compressor.

Please refer to Equipment Options for upgrades available for these models


  • B-CONTROL MICRO Compressor Control for the control and reliable monitoring of basic functions
  • Bauer Compressor Blocks which are able to achieve extremely long service lives with low energy consumption and reliable oil lubrication of cylinder surfaces
  • B-DRAIN Automatic Condensate Drain which automatically removes the condensate that forms during compression (water/oil mixture) from the intermediate separators and the final separator and collects it in a condensate vessel.
  • AIR COOLING provided using ambient air and by discharging the heat they generate efficiently and effectively
  • V-belt drive which is used for power transmission is low maintenance and self-tensioning. The tension of the V-belt does not have to be adjusted.
  • Now significantly quieter due to the new anti-vibration frame and noise-optimised Super Silent housing
  • Compact dimensions for installation wherever space is at a premium
  • Ergonomic design foroptimum accessibility and operation
  • Very easy to maintain
Super Silent version
Super Silent housing reduces the noise level of the compressor unit and enables an exhaust shaft to be used. For units in the MINI-VERTICUS & VERTICUS series, Super-Silent sound insulation can be retrofitted on request.


The BAUER B-CONTROL II compressor control is the extended version of the B-CONTROL MICRO basic compressor control.
Monitoring the intermediate pressures and intermediate stage temperatures. This monitoring system is recommended for continuous operation and fully automated operation, as well as for compressor units that do not receive regular attention from specialist personnel. Monitoring tracks the minimum value of stage 1 (intermediate pressure only) and the maximum value of all compressor stages. The compressor unit shuts off if the values monitored fall below or exceed the permissible limit values. The actual value is displayed by the B-CONTROL II compressor control unit.
Oil level monitoring
Optional oil level monitoring system for safely switching off the compressor unit when the oil level is low.
If the oil level reaches the minimum mark, this is displayed on the control and the compressor is switched off automatically for safety reasons. This option is particularly recommended for compressor units in continuous operation.
B-APP allows users to remotely control and monitor compressors with the new B-CONTROL MICRO. B-APP also offers additional features such as product-specific news, videos, an integrated dealer search function and calculation tools. Available in the AppStore (iOS) and on GooglePlay (Android).
P 61 Purification system
The units in the MINI-VERTICUS & VERTICUS series can be supplied with the P 61 purification system integrated as an option. Clean air and gas qualities meeting the requirements of ISO 8573-1 (among others) can be achieved.
P 81 Purification system
The units in the MINI-VERTICUS & VERTICUS series can be supplied with the P 81 purification system integrated as an option. This system doubles the intervals for changing cartridges compared with the P 61 purification system and meets the requirements of more far-reaching treatment standards.
Particulate filter
An integrated particulate filter is offered as an option in conjunction with the P61 and P81 purification systems, to remove particulates safely in compliance with industrial requirements under ISO 8573 class 2.
B-SECURUS filter monitoring
The B-SECURUS system monitors the saturation of the filter cartridge(s) by measuring the moisture in the molecular sieve.
B-KOOL refrigeration dryer
The normal service life (capacity) of a filter cartridge can be extended many times over by additional cooling of the compressed air with the B-KOOL refrigeration dryer.
Intermediate pressure gauges
Analogue pressure gauges mounted on the compressor unit in a suitable location. They make it easy to check, diagnose and maintain the unit.
Intake system
The intake system is needed to supply the compressor with air or gas at a suitable and monitored intake pressure.
Intake pressure reduction
Intake pressure reduction ensures that the compressor takes in the gas at the appropriate pressure. The level of intake pressure reduction is adjusted according to prevailing gas pressure and required intake pressure. Integrated safety valves and pressure monitoring effectively ensure that intake pressure does not fall below or above the permissible level.
First stage separator
The installation of a separator after the first compressor stage is recommended for units operating in conditions where the moisture content of the ambient air is high (in tropical regions and for the effective compression of gases with a high moisture content.
60-litre condensate vessel
The generous 60 l condensate collection system provides a central collection point for the condensate produced during the compression process inside the compressor.
Base frame
The compressor and up to 2 storage bottles each with a geometric capacity of 50 or 80 litres are installed on the extended base frame, making this a turnkey system.
Exhaust shaft
Two types of exhaust shaft are available for the installation of compressors in containers, housings or service rooms.
