Compressor Solutions for Power Distribution Applications


Sauer Compressors have invested the experience and expertise gained over the years to build better compressors for power distribution applications


Power distribution is the final stage process which is used to deliver electric power from transmissions systems to people who need it. Back in 1956, our first industrial compressors were used to extinguish electrical arcs in electricity substations. Today, our compressors are now renowned for their safe and reliable operation under extreme conditions.


Who are SAUER customers?

• Energy-suppy companies
• Major industrial companies which have their own electrical substations
• Local operators of electrical substations
• Engineering offices
• Energy-supply companies
• Gas-station manufacturers
• Gas-treatment companies


Electrical Substations

As a vital part of a country’s supply network, electricity substations are used to change voltage levels, with the optimum voltage selected in line with the level of power to be transmitted and the distance the electricity must travel. Transformer stations then lower the voltage level to that required by end-users. SF6 is an essential gas used for insulating gas in high voltage switches. SF6 has excellent properties for electrical insulation and the suppression of electrical arcs during switching.

Sauer Compressors is one of the best-known supplies for electrical substations – an application requiring safe and reliable operation given the extreme conditions encountered.

In substations our compressors are used for:

• Extinguising electrical arcs
• Actuating open power switches
