Unicus 4i – the new standard in compressor technology

A specific hardware component is integrated into Unicus 4i and at the keystroke on the operator interface one has immediate access to a qualified third party lab over the internet. If one does not have access, Bauer can install a cell phone modem

Bauer Compressors, the leader in high pressure breathing air compressor systems and components, has created the most technologically advanced compressor system in the industry -- Unicus 4i.

Unicus 4i is an "all-in-one" compressor package which centralises all high pressure breathing air system components into one appliance type package, says a company spokesperson.

Central to the compressor is an air-cooled compressor coupled to a high pressure breathing air purification system, she says.

"Imagine an operator interface similar to your smart-phone. Unicus 4i incorporates this same touchscreen technology to the operations panel, providing immediate operator interface with the unit for system operations and fault condition assessment," she explains.

Turn the compressor on, or off, from one touchscreen; or control the processed air into or out of the onboard ASME air storage cylinders by the tap of a screen; or perhaps fill your SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) cylinders within a 3-position NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) compliant containment fill station while at the same time controlling the function of individual fill pressures at each SCBA filling position, she says.

If obtaining an accurate air sample for analysis, and locating a qualified lab has been a problem, Bauer has the solution. LAB ON Locale 2 is a proprietary option which takes the guess work out of the equation.

A specific hardware component is integrated into Unicus 4i and at the keystroke on the operator interface one has immediate access to a qualified third party lab over the internet. If one does not have access to an internet connection, Bauer can install a cell phone modem for that.

Every SCBA fill sequence should be logged in accordance with NFPA. If data is not logged and an accident occurs; then who knows the history of the SCBA, or how would one know who filled the cylinder?

Bauer has taken the guess work out. "Our optional RFID Technology utilises proprietary antennas to read SCBA tags to record all data in accordance with NFPA," she continues.

Along these lines, not everyone has the same gas monitoring requirements. Bauer’s optional Gas-Tek sensor technology allows one to tailor the gas monitoring requirements to one’s specific needs. Included in the Gas-Tek system is a fault alarm with shutdown to prohibit it from processing contaminated air.

"We manufacture all the key components within the Unicus 4i system, so when one thinks high pressure breathing air, think Bauer – it has been in our DNA for 70-years," she says.

Referring to Bauer’s TCOM trailer package, she says one of its many unique features is its proprietary Dual Drive system.

"While operating at the fire station, merely plug the unit supplied shore power cable into a fire station affixed electrical connection. One then has the ability to operate the compressor system from electrical power. While on scene, away from the station, one has the ability to power the compressor from a water-cooled diesel engine," she says.

Other amenities incorporated within the weather proof enclosure include storage for up to twelve (12) SCBA cylinders; Four (4) ASME type air storage cylinders; A two position containment fill station (tested in accordance with the 2016 edition of NFPA 1901) which is housed behind an anodized aluminum roller shutter door along with all the compressor and air management controls.

The TCOM series offers one the best answers when wondering if one should take it or leave it, she adds.
