For BAUER, protecting the health of consumers has always been paramount. Since the successful launch of the B-DETECTION PLUS online gas measurement system and the B-VIRUS FREE protective filter system, market sectors such as the Emergency Services, Damage Control, Defence, Diving and Oil & Gas have all benefited from the knowledge and security that the compressed air they breathe is safe and within prescribed limits.
B-virus free from Bauer Kompressoren
B-VIRUS FREE is a solution that eliminates viruses at the air intake stage. The system is designed to protect firefighters, divers, pressure chamber operators and medical staff from these hazards whenever they require respiratory equipment for their daily operations.
The B-VIRUS FREE protective filter system reliably neutralises – depending on the charging rate of the compressor – a minimum of 99.9% of the SARS CoV-2 virus, bacteria and special moulds from the intake air.
Brilliantly simple and wholly effective, the chemical and ozone-free technology of the patent-pending B-VIRUS FREE System uses a special UV light source to destroy pathogens in the intake air flow before they can reach the compressor. The highly effective 254-nm UV wavelength is absorbed by the pathogens’ DNA, where the photons destroy the bonds between the DNA strands of the viruses, bacteria and mould spores, and prevent them from reproducing. Following a rigorous programme of testing, B-VIRUS FREE has achieved certification from the world-renowned Fraunhofer Institute.
B-VIRUS FREE can be ordered alongside any new BAUER system and is also easy to retrofit. The filter system is designed for flexible mounting to a wall and has a compact footprint for extra ease of handling and convenience.
B-DETECTION PLUS from BAUER KOMPRESSOREN
Is three months too long? This is the maximum interval between air quality tests according to N.A 4.2 of BS EN12021:2014
Even when your BAUER compressor is operated and maintained in line with professional standards, certain environmental conditions, which can occur at any time between scheduled air quality tests, may cause breathing air to become contaminated with hazardous substances including CO, CO2 and VOCs. BAUER tackled this problem by developing its own in-house gas measurement system – the B-DETECTION PLUS.
A gas measurement system has the purpose of measuring and monitoring all predefined gases in continuous operation. It ensures that breathing air cylinders are filled with ‘clean’ air only, and that firefighters and other emergency services personnel breathe nothing but air that complies with DIN EN 12021:2014 specifications.
It is available in three versions: B-DETECTION PLUS i (integral to the compressor unit), B-DETECTION PLUS s (a standalone unit for full-time online monitoring) and B-DETECTION PLUS m (a mobile version).
With planned connectivity enhancements available from September 2021, the B-DETECTION PLUS remains at the forefront of gas measurement systems.
