Bauer Compressors Is Expanding at HQ!
Bauer Compressors, which offers CNG packages suitable for the smallest fleets or the largest transit bus applications, reports a major expansion at its U.S. headquarters in Norfolk, Va. The project includes an 18,000-square-foot addition to its fabrication facility, 13,000 square feet of new office space including a new training facility, and major upgrades to the existing systems assembly unit.
“This investment is a testimony to Bauer’s commitment to utilize the latest in world-class, state-of-the-art, high productivity manufacturing, assembly and testing facilities in support of our mission to provide our customers with the highest performing, highest quality pressure compression systems on the market at the best value,” the company says.
For transit-scale demand, Bauer has introduced its C26 X-Fill series as a next-generation high-capacity CNG compressor – “engineered to achieve large capacity performance in an attractive and extremely quiet package,” the company says.
The new unit spans the 125- to 175-horsepower range and features Bauer’s newest, high inlet, water-cooled compressor. It is designed to operate reliably in –20°F to +120 °F climates, and can accommodate gas main inlet line pressures of one to 550 psi.
The C26 X-Fill is also designed for ease of maintenance, with intervals of 2,000 to 4,000 hours between valve changeovers, 8,000 hours between ring changes – and 30,000 hours between major overhauls.
“Bauer is committed to the philosophy that customer satisfaction is achieved through a strategy of continuous improvement using in-house research and development, engineering, manufacturing and life cycle support services,” the company says.
Bauer is at Booth 3460.
