Sauer Compressors Group

Over 60 years of naval expertise – for your benefit

As long ago as 1955, Sauer delivered the first high-pressure compressor to the nascent West German Navy. Since then, many thousand compressors have been delivered to navies all over the world. Specially designed for use on corvettes, frigates, destroyers, mine sweepers, mine hunters, aircraft carriers and submarines, these compressors have worked to the full satisfaction of their naval users. Thanks to our broadly based present-day portfolio we can most certainly supply you with precisely the right high-pressure compressor to meet your specific needs.

Air-cooled high-pressure piston compressors

Main features:

  • Direct-drive design means less maintenance, higher reliability, greater efficiency and less noise than a V-belt drive
  • Simple maintenance as piston and cylinder are each made in one piece
  • Low blow-by thanks to use of multiple classic piston rings
  • Best clearance between piston and liner for higher reliability and high temperatures

With their unique swash-plate design our GIRODIN range of compressors stands for highest precision and craftsmanship. Exclusively built in France by Girodin-Sauer SAS, they are unrivalled in performance, size and accessibility, making them the first choice for demanding applications in the naval sector. These highly sophisticated compressors have been successfully deployed in French-designed submarines for decades. They have an extremely low level of structure-borne noise and a unique compact design, which allows the complete compressor to be carried onto or off the vessel via a pathway only 68 cm wide.


How you benefit:

  • Up to 250 barg final pressure
  • Ultra-compact due to axial swash-plate design
  • Low level of structure-borne noise
  • Easiest maintenance from just one side
  • Suitable for direct seawater cooling
