The SIGMA SMART AIR service package makes the advanced service of tomorrow, available today.
In addition to enabling entry into the world of predictive maintenance, SIGMA SMART AIR also supports step-by-step digitalisation of your compressed air system – all within the scope of Industrie 4.0.
We provide and support your company’s entire compressed air supply 24/7, 365 days a year. The best part is that you pay only for what you actually use.
The SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 lies at the heart of the service package. Serving as the central intelligence core within the compressed air station, it assumes control tasks and provides data-streaming to the KAESER PLANT CONTROL CENTER. Process data are encrypted and transferred in real-time via a radio modem. The advantage of this approach is that the customer network remains untouched and sensitive data are protected.
Compressed air data and energy management are permanently monitored and analysed in the KAESER PLANT CONTROL CENTER. This consequently makes predictive maintenance possible. Compressed air system downtime - and the associated impact on production - is therefore significantly reduced. This ensures maximum effectiveness and efficiency of the systems throughout their entire life-cycle.
The optimal duty cycle for reciprocating compressors is between 60 and 70 %. As such, they're the best choice for high-fluctuation operation with load peaks – especially for trades, workshops and small industry.
When used as boosters, reciprocating compressors can augment existing system pressure, raising it to 45 bar in specific locations.
Portable reciprocating compressors from KAESER augment the quality and cost-effectiveness of your trades work. Our range includes numerous sizes to cover a wide spectrum of application areas:
From filling tyres in the workshop to transporting bulk materials in industry – our stationary reciprocating compressors offer exceptional versatility. We would be pleased to offer you a consultation to determine which solution is best suited to meet your specific application‘s needs.
Equipped with a reciprocating compressor, air receiver, refrigeration dryer and optional filters, our complete systems produce oil-free compressed air matched exactly to your needs.
Do you need high pressure process air only for certain points in your production process? If so, installing boosters is a far more efficient solution than designing the entire system to deliver high pressure compressed air.
Select from individual components or a complete, turnkey system.
Do you have special compressed air supply requirements? Kaeser will put together a complete, turnkey compressed air station for you – with custom compressed air quality, flow rate and pressure requirement specifications.
Naturally we use only the highest quality, industrial-grade Kaeser components. In special circumstances, Kaeser can also construct a completely custom machine to meet your individual needs.
Low-maintenance, quiet and efficient, Kaeser blowers generate compressed air for a wide range of different applications:
We offer three different design concepts for your compressed air application:
When it comes to KAESER rotary screw blowers with the SIGMA Profile, efficiency is more than just a promise.

What is more, KAESER rotary screw blowers are designed to be especially compact, can be controlled remotely or automatically for trouble-free operation and are compatible with Industrie 4.0 systems.
Low energy consumption, coupled with the ability to operate at 100% duty cycles, ensures that KAESER rotary screw technology pays off handsomely when it comes to municipal and industrial wastewater treatment, flotation, fluidisation and fermentation applications.
Are you looking for a reliable and energy-efficient supply of compressed air in the low pressure range?
PillAerator turbo blowers from Kaeser Kompressoren are compact turbo compressors developed specifically with aeration applications in mind. Thanks to innovative magnetic bearings, the drive motor operates completely wear-free.
Our turbo blowers are used wherever process air is required in the low pressure range – such as aerobic, biological wastewater treatment, fermentation and flotation applications.
Rotary lobe blowers from KAESER with the OMEGA Profile impress with their exceptionally durable construction. Thanks to a universal design concept, these blower systems are not only individually configurable and simple to expand - they also stand out for their ease of maintenance and handling.
When specified with the optional control cabinet, KAESER rotary lobe blowers are transformed into ready-to-run, “Plug and Play” complete solutions, thus ensuring simple commissioning and reliable, economical operation.
KAESER’s tried-and-tested rotary lobe technology is ideal for applications such as the pneumatic conveying of bulk materials, filter backwashing at drinking water installations, the aeration of biofilters and pools in the aquaculture sector, municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants and the conveyance of nitrogen.
Our single-block blowers provide maximum flexibility. The OMEGA series blowers with their three-lobe rotors minimise pulsation and include a wide range of rotary lobe blowers for stationary and mobile applications. They are manufactured in state-of-the-art, climate-controlled CNC production facilities and are rigorously tested at full load.
Kaeser aftercoolers / heat exchangers are specifically designed for use with Kaeser blowers. They are designed for all applications requiring an upper limit on the process air temperature. In addition, it is possible to recover heat energy with aftercoolers / heat exchangers.
Kaeser offers two cooling concepts for aftercooling:
The heated cooling air can be used for hall-heating purposes, whilst the heated cooling water can be used in water treatment systems, for example, for drying sludge.
The SIGMA CONTROL 2 (local intelligence) and SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 (central intelligence) controllers ensure efficient interplay between all components in your compressed air system. This is where you can achieve the biggest energy savings. The capabilities of an intelligent computer are needed to perform such a complex task. Its tasks:
The SIGMA CONTROL 2 unit coordinates compressed air generation and consumption. With its intelligent control, this advanced system prevents inefficient energy usage, especially in partial load operation. Kaeser offers various compressor controllers suited according to particular requirement.
SIGMA CONTROL 2: for all KAESER rotary screw compressors, rotary screw blowers, reciprocating compressors, boosters and rotary lobe blowers
The SIGMA CONTROL 2 fulfils the highest requirements for an internal compressor controller and is based on advanced industrial computing technology. The control unit is linked with interchangeable input and output modules, allowing flexible matching to all available Kaeser rotary screw compressors, screw blowers, reciprocating compressors and rotary blower systems, as well as to external communications systems.
The next generation of compressed air management master system, the SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 utilises adaptive 3-Dadvanced Control to make air generation and treatment even more intelligent, reliable and efficient.
And if you have big plans for the future: The SIGMA AIR MANAGER 4.0 is designed to grow with your air station. A simple software upgrade allows expansion of the master controller without the need for additional investment in new hardware.
Kaeser KC centrifugal separators remove condensate at the compressor's compressed air discharge point. They're a must for faultless and energy-efficient functioning of downstream dryers and filters. KC centrifugal separators are equipped with the economical and extremely reliable ECO-DRAIN 31 condensate drain – naturally, with test button and alarm contact included. They're also very easy to combine with KAESER FILTERS and can be wall-mounted using optional wall mounts – for highly straightforward installation.
Models with flow rates up to 88.5 m³/min, special product variants available in silicon-free design, for working pressure of 45 bar.
Kaeser compressed air dryers ensure perfect drying of compressed air for the intended application and all flow rates. Since they're designed to be high-quality industrial machines, you'll be providing reliable protection against condensate damage for your systems and processes, even under the harshest conditions.
And to ensure the balance of costs remains advantageous for you over the long-term, we offer intelligent energy-saving control for all drying processes and will work with you to identify the optimal unit size and configuration. Just get in touch!
Kaeser compressed air filters and activated carbon adsorbers provide your systems and processes reliable, highly efficient protection against dust, aerosols and oil vapours – for all purity classes as per ISO 8573-1, perfectly compatible with our range of compressors and other compressed air treatment options.
Kaeser compressed air filters are available with a pressure of 16 bar, whilst high-pressure filters range up to 45 bar; filters are also available in a silicon-free version, such as for use in painting processes.
Condensate drains remove condensate separated in centrifugal separators, air receivers, refrigeration dryers and filters from the compressed air system. They are therefore indispensable components for efficient compressed air treatment and disruption-free compressed air supply.
ECO-DRAIN electronic condensate drains from Kaeser are highly cost-effective and reliable. This is attributable to a control concept that works independently of condensate volume, dirt-resistant valve mechanics and a network-capable alarm contact (from model 31 and higher).
ECO-DRAIN condensate drains are available for compressor flow rates up to 1700 m³/min. Kaeser also offers suitable product versions for special applications, such as aggressive condensate, working pressures up to 63 bar, as well as in vacuums or frost regions.
All compressor condensate usually contains trace amounts of oil. Accordingly, it's common in most cases for official regulations to apply which require compliance with a maximum oil content before condensate can be fed into the regular sewer system.
AQUAMAT oil-water separators remove dispersed oil – with type approval from Deutsche Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt). They enable legally compliant treatment of condensate – directly where it arises and with no energy consumption.
To meet specialised installation requirements, we offer electronic level sensors, tested oil pans and frost protection heaters. Special condensate distributors are available for a parallel hook up multiple separators with equivalent condensate load.
Storage media and distribution and pressure maintenance systems are key components of any compressed air station. Efficient operation is assured only if network pressure is stable at all points and if the compressed air quality is high.
Air receivers are an important link in the compressed air chain: as storage media or buffers for peak load demand.
With Kaeser air receivers, you are always on the safe side technically: because we look at the overall system, we focus on perfectly matched easy installation and a comprehensive range of accessories.
DHS 4.0 series electronic air-main charging systems from KAESER not only provide protection for your compressed air treatment components, but also help ensure reliable compressed air quality - even following a complete shutdown of your compressed air supply system.
With dropping pressure, the flow velocity in the pipework quickly increases and can potentially overwhelm all of the components in the compressed air system. Installation of a KAESER DHS 4.0 air-main charging system guarantees the required minimum pressure and thereby ensures reliable operation, especially when re-starting the system following a shutdown.
Thanks to a patented pulse width modulation control concept, each air-main charging system is prepared for every eventuality and, as is KAESER’s way, combines exceptional operational reliability with simple and straightforward operation.

Even better from a single source: Kaeser compressed air tools and portable compressor accessories are perfectly tailored to work together and are manufactured to the same stringent quality standards in terms of performance, durability and ergonomics.
A Kaeser compressor is a purchase for life – and a decision that we always want you to look back on with satisfaction. To make sure of that, we put all of our energy and passion into the development of our machines as well as excellent customer advice and service.
The purchase price and service costs account for just a fraction of the total lifetime cost of a compressor. The biggest item by far is the cost of energy.
We have been striving for more than 40 years to reduce your energy expenses from compressed air production – but not only that. We also never lose sight of the service and maintenance costs and the constant availability of the compressed air supply.
That's why we take a close look at your production set-up and your needs. We've developed systems that permit a precise assessment of how much compressed air you need – and at which quality standards. That's because we need a clear understanding of your requirements to develop solutions that will save you time and money.
"You can't do that with compressor vendors. This is possible only with a compressed air system provider whose specialised staff – despite their detailed knowledge – do not get lost in the details. They see the big picture, and instead of talking customers into things, can make a convincing argument for the best solution."
Dieter Markowiak, Facility Maintenance/Energy Supply Specialist, Airbus plant, Bremen
Compressors for these solutions are not one-size-fits-all products. Amongst the numerous design options with a wide power output range, we'll find the right model for you.
