Commercial Shipping

Ocean-going shipping has stringent quality and reliability requirements. Sauer Compressors has been fulfilling them for more than 140 years. Not only are our starting- and working-air compressors among the most modern and most economic compressors available on the market; they have proven their reliability under the most demanding operational conditions.


What you need:

  • Air-cooled starting-air compressors
  • Air-cooled working-air compressors


How you benefit:

  • Lower operating temperatures
  • Reduced installation and maintenance costs

3-stage air-cooled starting-air compressors

Air-cooled compressors used to be limited to 80 m³/h due to the high compression temperatures of over 250°C. The breakthrough came with the development of 3-stage air-cooled compressors. The three stages reduce temperatures to under 170°C and make effective cooling by air possible.
SAUER 3-stage air-cooled compressors are now the standard product in commercial shipping and lead the market through dependable quality and reliability.


2-stage starting-air compressors

If you want a dependable, low-maintenance compressor, you need look no further than Sauer. Well over a thousand of our 2-stage starting-air compressors are delivered to our customers every year – either as air-cooled Mistral or water-cooled Typhoon compressors. There are good reasons for their popularity.

How you benefit:

  • Reliable, robust machines that benefit from our decades of expertise and experience
  • Lightweight and compact with little space required for installation
  • Reliable and safe, even at ambient temperatures of up to 60°C.
  • Suitable for the harshest ambient conditions

Service you can always depend on

Although Sauer compressors are renowned for their dependability and low maintenance requirements, at some stage in a Sauer compressor’s service life parts will need replacing. And the last thing you then want is an undue wait for a spare part or service technician to arrive. But if you choose one of our Sauer Service packages, you can be sure of not just outstanding support but also of fast assistance in getting your system up and running again.
