Bauer Compressors: Limiting helium waste with recycling technologies


75 years ago, just one year after the end of the Second World War, Hans Bauer started to produce compressors at his parent’s property. Never in his wildest dreams could he have imagined that he was laying down the foundation for a global corporation that today has 350 accredited sales partners and 600 service centres worldwide.

Born out of a single-plant operation in Munich, when the original product designed and sold by Bauer Kompressoren was a compressor block positioned on the back of a tractor and used to inflate tyres, the company now continues to innovate and has progressively adapted its compressor offering to fit with many different applications.

Bauer’s first global expansion came in 1976 with the foundation of Bauer Compressors in Norfolk, Virginia. And today, its expansive product offering for breathing air and industrial compressors supports the following segments: fire stations, military installations, industrial manufacturing, oil & gas, biogas, CNG for transportation, helium recovery, nitrogen generation, gas assist injection, and others.

Speaking to gasworld in a recent interview, Brice Jones, Vice-President of Industrial Sales at Bauer, said, “Having 75 years of compressor manufacturing experience, which we continually build upon and innovate from, is what allows us to provide the most technically advanced compressors within the segments we serve. Bauer Compressor’s overarching aim is to build a better tomorrow for future generations by offering outstanding and innovative products.”
