BAUER Compressors, Inc. is known as the leader in high pressure breathing air compressor systems and components. Once again BAUER has proven that by creating the most technologically advanced compressor system in the industry.
UNICUS 4i is an “All-In-One” compressor package which centralizes all high-pressure breathing air system components into one appliance type package. Central to the compressor is an air-cooled compressor coupled to a high-pressure breathing air purification system.
Imagine an operator interface similar to your smartphone. UNICUS 4i incorporates this same touchscreen technology to the operations panel, providing immediate operator interphase with the unit for system operations and fault condition assessment. Turn the compressor on, or off, from one touchscreen; Or control the processed air into or out of the onboard ASME air storage cylinders by the tap of a screen; Or perhaps fill your SCBA cylinders within a 3-position NFPA compliant containment fill station while at the same time controlling the function of individual fill pressures at each SCBA filling position.
If obtaining an accurate air sample for analysis, and locating a qualified lab has been a problem, we have the solution. Lab On Locale 2™ is a proprietary option which takes the guesswork out of the equation. A specific hardware component is integrated into UNICUS 4i and at the keystroke on the operator interphase you have immediate access to a qualified third party lab over the internet. If you do not have access to an internet connection, no problem we can install a cell phone modem for you.
Data Logging. Did you know that every SCBA fill sequence should be logged in accordance with NFPA? If you are not logging the data and an accident occurs; then who knows the history of the SCBA, or how do you know who filled the cylinder? BAUER has taken the guesswork out. Our optional RFID Technology utilizes proprietary antennas to read SCBA tags to record all data in accordance with NFPA.
Along these lines, not everyone has the same gas monitoring requirements. Our optional Gas-Tek™ sensor technology allows you to tailor the gas monitoring requirements to your specific needs. Included in our Gas-Tek system is a fault alarm with shutdown to prohibit it from processing contaminated air.
We manufacture all the key components within the UNICUS 4i system, so when you think high pressure breathing air, think BAUER – it has been in our DNA for 70-years.
- The integrated 15-inch HMI touch screen allows operators to control the entire system from a central location with full visual interface of all system functions.
- The optional BAUER Gas-Tek™ gas monitoring system utilizes state-of-the-art gas sensor technology with real-time assessment of breathing air quality to assure safety. Trace elements of CO and other harmful gases in excess of preset limits will force the compressor to shut off and display an alarm on the HMI touch screen. The HMI will also automatically prompt a quarterly system calibration in accordance with NFPA guidelines.
- The optional Lab On Locale 2™ facilitates real-time sampling of the compressed air and transmits the readings via internet uplink to an accredited third-party lab to satisfy quarterly air sample testing/reporting as prescribed by NFPA 1989.
- The optional RFID Reader (Data-Logging Interface) automatically reads and records data from the RFID equipped SCBA cylinders. Simply set the cylinder in one of three (3) fill positions and the scanner antenna will automatically provide the date/location/pressure/person of the last fill along with serial number and the bottle’s total number of fills. This makes NFPA 1989 data collection easy.
BAUER has been manufacturing high pressure compressors for over 70 years. From our humble beginnings in the BAUER family home in Munich, Germany in 1946 to our current status as an industry leader, BAUER has earned its reputation as the world’s foremost innovative designer and manufacturer of high pressure compressors and purification systems.
Reliable breathing air compressor systems have been our focus for six decades. Whether you require a stand-alone compressor, a fully integrated SCBA recharging system, or a complete SCBA trailer system, our priority is to provide breathing air of the highest quality which protects you so you can protect others.
